The news cycle in 2022 was nothing short of a rollercoaster, with Jubilee and footballing highs meeting the lows of war, economic crises and the Queen’s death. But which stories most gripped online readers last year? Newsworks’ insight team puts Ipsos iris monthly data to the test…
To find the top 10 biggest stories of the year, we have used an aggregate score of the audience numbers, page views and dwell time of each day from across digital national news brands in 2022.
Where stories took place over multiple days across the year, we have taken the strongest performing day from each story to give us our top 10.
