British tabloid Daily Mail has seemingly surpassed the New York Times in a big way.
Daily Mail's website, Mail Online, has surpassed New York Times' website traffic, knocking the Times off its perch as the newspaper with the most website traffic in the world.
In an interview with Buzzfeed, editor and publisher of Mail's digital properties, Martin Clarke, attributed the growth to an increase in U.S. traffic. The numbers were based on information from comScore, an online tracking service.
A spokesperson from the New York Times rebutted the new information regarding Mail Online's traffic. The Times' Eileen Murphy told Buzzfeed that the Mail only surpassed New York Times by including more of their properties. As standalone newspapers, Murphy said the Times remains as the number one newspaper site worldwide.
