Akamai Unveils News Website Traffic Tracker

An interesting item this morning in the Web Industry Host Review (The WHIR) mentions the new Akamai Net Usage Index for News. According to The WHIR, "the index, updated every five minutes, analyzes traffic during major news events, recording aggregate numbers and breaking down the data by geography and time. Data on end users is not being collected."

You can access the Net Usage Index for News on the Akamai website here. Apparently the index is gathering data from over 100 news portals that are also Akamai customers. The top media events by traffic is also an interesting feature.
