Mail Online's number of average monthly users rose by 4.88 per cent month-on-month to a record 53,943,420. The average figure for daily unique browsers passed the three million mark with an increase of 3.58 per cent.
Every other audited national newspaper website in the report – the Guardian, Independent, Telegraph, and Mirror Group Digital - suffered drops in both monthly and daily average figures.
For the Guardian website, this meant a dip back below the 40 million mark, broken in November.
Results for the Times and the Sun websites continue to go unreported, as requested by News International following the introduction of a paywall for the Times and Sunday Times sites last year.
