Metro was the fastest growing national newspaper website in September, according to new figures released by ABC.
It grew 106 per cent to 2.4m browsers per day. The Sun and Independent were the next fastest growers, both up 80 per cent year on year.
Mail Online remains the biggest site by some margin, attracting around 14m unique browsers per day worldwide.
But its growth appears to have leveled off and has been at around that level of traffic since January 2015.
The Guardian and Telegraph websites are no longer audited by ABC.
