Legacy.com partnered with Millward Brown Digital, a third-party research firm with a panel of 2.3 million online households, to measure total time on site for 43 newspapers and their obituary sections. The study covers 24 months.
Time Spent on Site
The study shows that the Legacy.com obituary and guest book contribute to a more engaging experience for readers, resulting in more total time spent on the newspaper’s site.
In fact, newspapers that partner with Legacy.com saw 80% more time spent in their obituary sections. Legacy.com-affiliated sites see an average of 22 minutes spent in their obit sections, as opposed to only 12 minutes in the obit sections of non-Legacy sites. (Fig 1)
