Nice to see some updates on the electronic side of some of the media with Independent Digital giving stats for their properties for March 2009. In the chart the blue line is independent.ie and the red are, collectively, the other sites. The average for the month was 113,256 the newspaper site and 26,800 for the others combined. I would point out that the figure for March 7th look a little spurious, but it’s the one published in the report. The spike on March 23rd can be put down to primarily to a sporting weekend of the Grand Slam and the boxing, but there also could be a secondary factor in the passing of Jade Goody over that weekend which was a much searched news story that day. It’s broken down into two distinct areas- independent.ie and their other properties : www.loadzajobs.ie, www.herald.ie, www.loadzajobs.co.uk, http://announcements.independent.ie, www.themeetingpoint.ie, www.yourlocal.ie, www.loadzacars.ie, www.kerryman.ie.
