THE 30 MOST POPULAR U.S. NEWSPAPER SITES

Files under General | Apr 9th

This is the full list of Nielsen//NetRatings newspaper site Top 30 statistics from February 2007.

The big news is that USA Today is the second largest.

The New York Times must have a lot of international visitors.

If this is the trend, let me predict that very soon USA Today could be the print newspaper with the largest circulation in the country (it is right now) and the paper with the leading Web site (very soon).
