Most Traffic Growth To UK News Sites Is Coming From U.S.

...web measurer Hitwise says traffic to Brit news sites from across the pond is growing nearly seven times as fast as that domestically. (To view a breakdown chart, click here.)

Analyst Robin Goad says Drudge is still the biggest aggregation referrer to UK news sites (bringing 10.6 percent of visits in August), followed by Google (NSDQ: GOOG) News (5.3 percent). But Google search is still the big traffic giver (13.5 percent); email’s a big referrer, too.



Isn't this an interesting tidbit?

I wonder if anyone will coin the phrase 'news refugees'?

Excellent! Now more Americans will get their eyes opened for what Israel really is doing. Thanks BBC and your anti-Israel stance!

We just need something other than our own version of "Pravda", or "Pravda-Lite", or "Pravda-LowCal".. . .

When the media stateside keeps covering and recycling the same inane celeb-related nonsense,
then we just have to find other resources for real and breaking news. (Things like Michael Jackson's death is news the very first time around, but is it really that worthy of extensive and extended coverage? Not really, unless you count something entertainment-specific like E! or MTV-news. I thought news was supposed to be about new things happening and what's going on in the world out there?) It's not that hard to figure out.

So it's not just referrers the Brittish media can thank, but also the fact our own media has an annoying tendency to occasionally to cover pointless stories or go into rerun la-la land.
