Scripps’ Web growth
Two Scripps Networks Web sites broke ratings records in January. HGTV.com, the Web site for Home & Garden Television, counted 5,658,000 unique visitors in January, a 170 percent increase over the previous month, due in part to the network’s 2003 Dream Home Giveaway that launched in January.
The site’s previous record was 3.3 million in March 2002 during the 2002 Dream Home Giveaway. In addition, DIYnet.com, the Web site for the Do-It-Yourself network, generated 1,081,000 unique visitors in January, double a year ago.
