TOP PHILIPPINE NEWS WEBSITE

ABS-CBNnews.com also remains as the top Philippine news website in unique browsers, unique visitors, visits, and pageviews.

It set an all-time high of more than 100 million pageviews for the month of July.

Almost a million users visit the ABS-CBNnews.com website daily, translated into an average of 3 million pageviews a day, according to data from Effective Measure (EM), the common provider of audience measurement analytics of Philippine online publishers.

For the Philippine audience alone, ABS-CBNnews.com recorded more than 8.9 million unique browsers, more than 25.6 million visits, and more than 44.8 million pageviews in July.

For the worldwide audience, ABS-CBNnews.com had more than 16.46 million unique browsers, 53.49 million visits, and 103.3 million pageviews for the month.

Second-placed GMA Network, in comparison, had 47.9 million total pageviews, 23.7 million visits, and 10.1 million unique browsers.

Ranking by unique browsers is deemed important because EM assigns a unique cookie ID to a viewer's web browser (or device) when the person visits an EM-audited site, drawing data to an almost 1-viewer-to-1 web browser or device.

Only EM subscribers are shown in its analytics reports.
