Hitwise: NyTimes still way ahead of Digg

Hitwise came out with some new data today indicating that previous speculation that Digg could soon pass the NYTimes in online traffic is not supported by more definitive data. LeeAnn Prescot writes on the Hitwise blog “According to the Hitwise US sample of 10 million internet users, Digg ranked at #101 in the News & Media category in for the week ending July 1, 2006. The share of page impressions for the NY Times was 19 times greater than for Digg for that week. ” See our post on Digg v3’s launch, where we argued (based on Alexa numbers) that Digg could soon challenge the Times on page views and our TalkCrunch interview with the Digg founders.
