Nielsen has released its monthly online results and it’s great news for Stuff and Neighbourly.

Stuff’s monthly unique audience topped two million; an 8% month-on-month increase to 2,058,000.

Stuff has also taken the number one position in Auckland, with a monthly audience of 557,000.

Editorial Director Mark Stevens said Stuff’s strong network of regional newsrooms and journalists across the country ensured its success nationally.

“And it’s really pleasing to see our focus on finding and telling Auckland stories that are important to Aucklanders paying off in that metropolitan market too,” Stevens said.

“We’ve invested in the top talent in Auckland and these latest audience figures reflect their excellent journalism. It’s important to them to be the trusted choice for news in their city.”

Stuff’s national footprint is reinforced by its hyper-local presence in every Kiwi community through social network Neighbourly.

Neighbourly’s unique audience has also increased 8% year-on-year to 866,000. More than one in four Kiwi households are now using Neighbourly, making it New Zealand’s largest private social network for local communities.
