News.com.au top of the pops. There were no changes in this morning’s Nielsen’s online ratings, which reveal the top 10 Australian news websites by traffic. But there were plenty of interesting tidbits. Australians spent, on average, 37 hours and 12 minutes looking at news content in February, and visited twice as many pages on News.com.au than they did on The Sydney Morning Herald‘s website. Australians spent an average of one hour, 37 minutes on News.com.au in February.
MailOnline is still the 10th most-visited website for Australians, while The Guardian is up 15% according to Nielsen, but isn’t in the top 10. The Australian also had a good month — with audience up 23% as it surpassed a million monthly visitors. It’s a good result, but still a way from cracking the top 10 (Mail Online had 1.3 million visitors).
