The newspaper increased its online audience by 15% in November, according to ABCe stats. User numbers reached 12.8m for November, compared with 6.4m a year ago.

The Telegraph has improved its online offering this year, mainly with the introduction of MyTelegraph, a service that allows readers to set up their own blogs on the site.

This proved to be instantly popular, with nearly 5,000 signing up for blogs in the first two months.
