*The data have been corrected to include an earlier omission. NJ.com has been added as number 41 on the list, and entities after that each moved down one ranking. Thus, the list now includes 51 outlets.

Note: Total Digital Population is the unduplicated combination of the desktop (web browsing and video) and mobile (websites and apps) traffic figures. For that reason, desktop and mobile figures combined may exceed the total digital population number.
Note: Custom entity was used for CNET.COM as it represented the most complete measurement of those domains.
