Advertising on makes sense. New Bern Post readers are local and engaged members of the community. They are highly educated and good income earners. In short, New Bern Post’s audience is highly targeted for local businesses.

The total number of January 2019 visitors to was 8,662 and 12,245 page views. This was typical for an average month for this growing local news website. Of those page views, 8,657 came from Facebook followers and 2,458 came from search engines. The vast majority of New Bern Post traffic comes from within Craven County.

Traffic increases substantially during particularly newsworthy events or with particularly engaging single articles.

For example, in September, New Bern Post was the only local news site still live and actively covering the hurricane as it happened. September had 31,191 page views and 22,207 visitors.

Traffic is also affected by particularly engaging single articles. The most-viewed articles have resulted in 11,000-14,000 page views each. This is not typical, however. Typical well-viewed articles result in between 2,000-4,000 page views.

New Bern Post traffic is not artificially inflated by click bait like mugshots or canned “5 things you need to know about …” articles. All content is locally sourced and locally relevant.
