Chartbeat’s list of the best-read digital stories of the year (as measured by engaged minutes among its clients) was released Tuesday.
The winner: a Politico survey of 34 experts on how the coronavirus will change the world permanently.
Politics and the pandemic, the two biggest stories of 2020, were paired in the Politico piece and common themes both on Chartbeat’s list and separate compilations by The New Yorker’s website and the sites of New York Magazine.
Second on the Chartbeat list was a Los Angeles Times story on the investigation of the causes of the helicopter crash that killed Kobe Bryant.
New York’s most-read story was model Emily Ratajkowski’s first-person account of a photographer expropriating pictures from a photoshoot and publishing several books without her consent.
The top two for The New Yorker were both Jane Mayer investigations — one on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell as the president’s “enabler-in-chief,” the other on legal difficulties that await President Donald Trump when he leaves office.
3 on Chartbeat’s list was a New York Times investigation of Trump’s tax avoidance and No.
Stories related to police shootings and Black Lives Matter did not command the same level of attention overall but a New York Times reconstruction of Breonna Taylor’s shooting was among Chartbeat’s top 10.
The Politico piece, published March 19, was digestible in small segments and organized by subcategories like “community” and “government.
Or it can mean, as with this piece, a big-think package in our Magazine that lets our audience peer around the corner to see how the world could be remade by the coronavirus crisis.
Steve Heuser, who edits Politico Magazine, added that the digital publication was looking for big insight fast.
“We decided to scramble the jets on a multi-author piece on our Magazine platform — it’s a format we use for big events, letting us move very quickly but also deliver a wide range of people simultaneously.
The New Yorker’s digital editor, Michael Luo, publishes an annual commentary on the site’s most successful stories.
“On the evening of Tuesday, March 10th, as the threat of the novel coronavirus became increasingly plain in New York City, the staff of The New Yorker went home and never returned to our offices in One World Trade Center.
I asked New York editor David Haskell for a comment and he emailed this response highlighting the variety of the best read group:.
For both New York and The New Yorker, a number of the top stories (both the ones by Mayer and Ratajkowski’s) also appeared in print editions.
Chartbeat’s list is limited to its own client list — a large one with international representation but by no means comprehensive of all digital sites.
The Chartbeat most engaging article list favors long-form work.
Chartbeat offers a total of engaged minutes for the year with its clients’ work — in 2020, that was 419,773,301,159.
