As the print news industry suffers online news has grown. Websites that American newspapers operate attracted more than 73.3 million unique users a month in the first three months of this year.
Online newspaper readers average more than 3.5 billion page views per month so far this year. This is an increase of 13 percent over the same period last year.
The one problem that newspapers are dealing with though is keeping advertising revenues up to deal with the increased digital need.
Advertisers aren’t willing to pay premium prices online that they have in the past for print editions.
Losses in ad revenues is the chief reason that so many newspapers have folded in recent months.
