The Wall Street Journal Digital Network, which included WSJ.com, Barrons.com, Marketwatch.com, SmartMoney.com and AllThingsD.com, has seen a double-digit increase in monthly visitors in 2012, the company said Tuesday.
The sites now generate almost 60 million visitors per month, a 16 percent increase from 2011.
WSJ Live, the Journal’s video initiative, is now available on 30 platforms, 18 of which were added in 2012, including Xbox. Streams have increased 370 percent since January to 35 million across all platforms.
WSJ.com also launched sites in three additional languages during 2012 – German, Korean and Bahasa – bringing the total number of local-language sites to eight.
