Cross promotion is evident, with three quarters promoting their papers
online and 89 per cent promoting their websites in the papers.

and sport. The most popular online ad categories are recruitment and
property, which are carried by by 78 per cent of regional papers.
Entertainment listings are carried by 78 per cent of regional papers.
Local business-to-business ads are carried by 69 per cent.
However, only 38 per cent are engaged in e-commerce, only a third are
making a profit from their websites and half are generating less than

The most popular website belongs to the Belfast Telegraph, reflecting US
interest in Irish affairs, with half a million impressions per week.
