Editor & Publisher notes the results of a recent Nielson report tracking the top 30 newspaper Web sites for the month of July, measured by unique traffic.

The top five: nytimes.com (with a 38% increase in unique traffic compared with last July), usatoday.com (-2%), washingtonpost.com (-2%), latimes.com (66% increase, largely due to the city’s end-of-July earthquake), and the Wall Street Journal Online (94% increase).

The beleaguered Chicago Tribune was 12th in line, behind the Boston Globe and the San Francisco Chronicle. The plucky newcomer: Kentucky.com, of the Lexington Herald-Leader, 27th on the list, above the Boston Herald and The Detroit News.
