IndieWire, The Voice Of Creative Independence, Had Its Most Trafficked Month Ever In May 2018

With more than 10.5 million unique readers for the month, IndieWire pageview traffic represented growth of 57% compared to the same time period last year. The 21-year-old brand also saw a massive 90% lift in unique visitors year over year, a new record for IndieWire.

Among the broad range of stories that contributed to the increase in traffic: leading coverage of the Cannes Film Festival, must-read takes on the Emmys and Fall TV, and in-depth stories about Marvel, the firing of Roseanne, the cancellation of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” and the dramatic box-office disappointment of “Solo.”

 “It is very satisfying to see that the effort we have put in to creating quality content has paid off with a dramatic increase in readers,” said IndieWire editor-in-chief Dana Harris. “We’re looking forward to maintaining this growth curve in the months ahead.”
