My posts about: Telegraph
On average, US traffic to UK newspaper sites is 36.8% of the UK traffic. The figure for the Telegraph is slightly higher (44.5%) and for the Mail it's a massive 62.5%.
By making use of ABCe data, we can check what Alexa says with the official audited data for UK newspapers. As the table shows, it's OK but not brilliant.
Figures from Compete.com, which tracks American internet use, show that, of the 4.7 million unique users that the Mail added from May to June, 1.2 million were from the USA, and foreign searches for Michael Jackson's kids also drove the Mail's growth.
Other people have tweeted (or retweeted) the Guardian's URLs 328,288 times over the last 4 months - way more than any other UK newspaper.
The FT and Times have more followers on Twitter than the Telegraph and Mail - but they're not tweeted about as often. The Telegraph is in second place: 120,731 tweets have included a link to one if its URLs. The Daily Mail is 3rd with 95,851.
National newspapers have a total of 1,068,898 followers across all their Twitter accounts - with the Guardian, Times and FT the only three papers in the top 10 newspaper accounts. The Guardian's the clear Twitter winner, as it's place on the Twitter Suggested User List means that its GuardianTech account has 831,935 followers - 78% of the total ...
The latest subscriber figures (see table below) show that, apart from a couple of exceptions, it's time for newspapers to turn off their RSS feeds - and hand over the server space, technical support and webpage real estate to something else. Like Twitter.
Interested in the MPs' expenses scandal? Here's a round up of the best resources and tools.
Maybe Google really does need to get together with Twitter to improve its real-time search. Taking 15 days to recognise the Telegraph as the best current result for MPs expenses is a bit poor.
The Telegraph has now dropped to result number 8 in Google for a search on MPs expenses.
The results from Google if you search for MPs expenses are rubbish. Last week they had pages from the BBC first and the Telegraph 2nd - even though the Telegraph is the primary source of all this material. Today the results are even worse: they're absolute garbage.
Telegraph.co.uk gets an astonishing 8% of its visitors from social sites like Digg, Delicious and Stumbleupon, Julian Sambles, Head of Audience Development, has revealed to me. The figure's much higher than anyone previously thought.
The full text of the row that erupted live on Twitter between @shanerichmond (Communities editor and technology blogger at Telegraph.co.uk) and @charlesarthur (The Guardian's Technology editor).
Newspaper websites are failing in some obvious ways to make their stories readable. Too many are using small fonts, long off-putting paragraphs, no subheadings, no in-content boxes or pictures, and no in-content links.
20 minutes after the Englang game finished at 9.55pm, half the major UK newspaper sites hadn't published the results.
Newspaper sites did very badly at linking to google's new street view service.
News sites are bad at linking out. Which of them managed to link to charity site rednoseday.com on its big day - and which failed to make mentions into proper hyperlinks.
When it comes to Fark, it's the Sun wots winning it. The Guardian come second - and yet again, the FT, Mirror and Express come last.
The Guardian has had more stores submitted to Reddit, the user-submitted news site, than any other UK newspaper website.
The Daily Telegraph has had more stories submitted to Digg, the social news website for sharing content, than any other UK newspaper site.
Which newspapers are stumbled a lot - and which are not ...
