CNBC claims No. 1 spot among biz news sites
CNBC claimed the top spot in the business news category with a record 115 million unique visitors in March, an increase of 98 percent year-over-year, according to comScore.
This marks the first time CNBC has ever ranked No. 1 in the category. Yahoo Finance has been the No. 1 business news website.
According to the latest comScore data, CNBC had the largest month-over-month and year-over-year audience gains in the category. CNBC more than doubled mobile unique visitors year-over-year with a record 98.3 million, representing the largest month-over-month and year-over-year audience gains in the category.
“This milestone is the culmination of our investment in extraordinary people who tell great stories backed by state-of-the-art product design and technology,” said Mark Hoffman, CNBC chairman. “The teams stayed squarely focused on our core business and investing content, while simultaneously expanding the aperture to include a wide range of money topics, and it’s paid off.”
CNBC reached 1 billion page views for the first time ever in a single month in March. Its top 25 days of all-time, based on unique visitors, also occurred in March.
