Herald Web Site Traffic Down in Feb.

An item that I should have posted a couple of weeks ago is the fact that Editor & Publisher's list of top 30 Newspaper Web Sites showed readership gains almost across the board in February except...

The Miami Herald:

Three Web sites experienced losses. The San Diego Union-Tribune was down about 7% and the Miami Herald dropped about the same. The Houston Chronicle's Web site took more of a hit, down 18%.
Ouch. You know one way to increase online hits? Open up the electronic archives. I'll keep repeating it until the powers that be at 1 Herald Plaza listen or they are no longer in power.

Is it possible web traffic is down because users are required to register to post comments?
