The BBC continues to increase traffic to its website. The number of page

impressions was up by 20 per cent (34 million) since the last table was

published after the height of the election in late June. The FT.com

figures remained static but Guardian Unlimited is a big mover, up four

million and climbing a place in the table. The Electronic Telegraph did

not increase page impressions and so slips two places. Ananova also

moved up a place after adding one million to its site traffic.
