UK National Newspaper Combined Print/Web Readership

The numbers, drawn from the results of the National Readership survey and reported in Press Gazette, show that nearly 14 million people per week are now reading the Mail titles either in print or online. The real number will be even higher as the figure does not include traffic from mobile devices.

The Sun remains the most read paper in print by a distance.

    I’d have thought the most interesting figures there are the very low web reader totals for the titles that have paywalls online. Are they worth it for such a big hit to online readers? I’d think Times would have a good chance of coming out as top broadsheet on total numbers if they didn’t charge. And such feeble numbers must cause a real problem selling digital advertising.

    Presumably Guido can’t comment since he’s tied into the Sun now himself…

      I am surprised that The Sun has over half-a-million readers prepared to pay £7+ a month for the Sun+ subscription. That’s over £40 million a year that the Gruntiad or the Mail are not getting.

      6000m x £0 = £0
      500m x £7 = £3500m

      so it depends on the web advertising – and a large majority have Adblock activated
