Interlake Spectator readers have discovered their favourite newspaper online, and are doing so in increasing numbers.

According to numbers from Google Analytics, received an almost 10 per cent increase in readership over the past month.

And that's not all. The number of unique visitors, as well as individual pageviews, are up too. Unique visitors shows the number of specific individuals viewing the site, and pageviews details which stories are getting the most attention at

The news is good, and shows that the Spectator is quickly attaining its goal of becoming the internet's go-to place for Interlake news.

"Online is the future and Spectator readers are showing how much they value our online product - it's terrific to see," says Managing Editor Marc Zienkiewicz. "We are no longer only a weekly print newspaper. We are a daily online news source that is a must-read for anyone who values local, homegrown community content that reflects the best the Interlake has to offer."

The Spectator is owned by Interlake Publishing, whose parent company is Canada's most progressive and visionary news organization, Sun Media.

"We share Sun Media's goal of having the best online news product in the country. Every story you see in the print edition makes it online first, meaning our website visitors have a jump on the latest goings-on in their community," Zienkiewicz says. "And it's only the beginning."

Later this year, Interlake Publishing - which also produces the Stonewall Argus and Teulon Times, Beausejour Review, Selkirk Journal, and Lac du Bonnet Leader - will completely revamp its websites to be even more attractive and functional for readers.
