Guys I’m just gonna do this with pictures because writing about it would be too much effort. However, I do have an impartial third part analyst to help me out with this! (scroll away)

Express Tribune vs Dawn on webtrafficspy
Tribune rank – 41,000 people a day! (its max 5% off, scouts honour)
Dawn rank – 64,000 people a day! (their peeps read more pages though – however, was that cause of bad page navigation? Check Alexa to find out how their new site layout is doing!

Damn, why are analytics so hard!)
