This week's leaders in the chart for news websites are all established market brands: BBC News, FT.com and CNN. The Guardian.co.uk replaces Guardian Unlimited as part of the network's new marketing strategy.

MegaStar, World Online and Ananova are pure dotcom brands which, despite their youth, came in ahead of The Times and ITN in terms of online traffic.
