Regional newspaper publishers have reported their monthly print circulation and online traffic figures in a single report for the first time today.
The Audit Bureau of Circulation published its first ‘Regional Multi-platform Report’ which shows print circulation alongside daily and monthly unique users for newspapers’ companion websites.
The report, for the period June to December 2008, includes traffic data for 61 online properties and networks as well as circulation information for their related newspapers and it is expected that more regional publishers will follow suit.
It coincides with the ABC’s bi-annual circulation figures, also published today.
Director of newspapers at ABC Martyn Gates said: “This report is a huge step forward for the regional publishing industry.
“The format, which allows publishers to display comparative print and online data together, has already proven to be very successful for national newspapers because it enables media owners, buyers and advertisers to get a better view of a media brand’s cross-platform reach.”

And how much ad revenue does that bring in?

Come off it, Jambo. Forty quid top whack, I’d say.
