Map from Google Analytics shows where Times of San Diego was read in the world in January.

Times of San Diego was read by 345,363 people in January, a 20% increase in readership compared to the same month last year.

Readers of the independent local news website continued to be youthful, mobile and local. Readers aged 25 to 34 constituted the largest audience segment at 22% of online sessions, smartphones were used for 66% of sessions, and 48% of sessions originated in San Diego County.

This data is from Google Analytics, which counts a reader as a “unique user” identified anonymously via a computer or smartphone’s Internet address.

Times of San Diego is supported by a staff of seven contributing editors and photographers, who publish 20 articles daily on all aspects of life in the San Diego region.

While most readers are local, the website has significant national and international reach, thanks to its coverage of politics, the military and sports.

No subscription is required, as the website is supported by local and national advertising and reader contributions. A free email newsletter is delivered at 8 a.m. daily with top stories from the previous 24 hours.

If you like the work we do, consider a small monthly contribution. An amount equal to the cost of a latte will help us increase coverage of the news across San Diego County.
