Mail Online kicks HuffPo out of 2nd place

Mail Online has passed the Huffington Post, becoming the second most popular news website in the world in March, MediaGuardian reported today. The New York Times is still the most popular English-language news website.

Associated Newspapers’ online network saw a 27 percent rise in unique visitors between February and March, reaching more than 39.6 million. HuffPo, which was bought by AOL for US$315 million in February, had just over 38.4 million uniques, up 20 percent.

The NY Times reported a 41 percent increase in traffic, reaching a record 61,964,000 unique users. However, this figure is expected to decrease, as the title implemented a metered paywall March 28.
