November 'record month' for Independent website

US election coverage helped boost the Independent website.


Month on month, The Independent was up 26.8% to 4.6M unique daily browsers - in part thanks to it's extensive coverage of the US election.

Christian Broughton, editor of the Independent, said: “Our passion and bold journalism shone through, particularly in the US market, with comment pieces from Independent Voices and distinctive news lines leading the way.


“At a time when there is so much concern about fake news on social media, I hope it is hugely reassuring for us all to see that real news can be such a potent force on Facebook.


“Whether our readers are subscribing to our Daily Edition app, visiting our website, or following us via social media, we see it as very good news indeed that more people than ever are coming to our journalism to find the truth, and a truly independent view of the world.”


The fastest growing newspaper website year on year was The Sun, up 114% to 3.5M unique daily browsers in the same month.
