Month-on-month The Independent was the fastest UK newspaper website in November, up 26.8 per cent to 4.6m unique browsers per day – fuelled by US election coverage.
Independent editor Christian Broughton said: “Our passion and bold journalism shone through, particularly in the US market, with comment pieces from Independent Voices and distinctive news lines leading the way.
“At a time when there is so much concern about fake news on social media, I hope it is hugely reassuring for us all to see that real news can be such a potent force on Facebook.
“Whether our readers are subscribing to our Daily Edition app, visiting our website, or following us via social media, we see it as very good news indeed that more people than ever are coming to our journalism to find the truth, and a truly independent view of the world.”
The Sun was again the fastest growing newspaper website in year-on-year terms up 114 per cent to 3.5m unique browsers per day in November.
