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.”
