Growth Rate For WSJ.com Falls Down Again

As Dow Jones doesn’t break down numbers in its electronic publishing group, it is hard to get a handle on the revenues of its website, alone from other services. Anyway, DJ’s consumer electronic publishing–which includes WSJ.com, related vertical sites, newswires, licensing/business development and radio/audio–revenues in Q1 in 2004 increased 9.1% and operating income rose 10.0% from the same period a year ago.

Paid subscribers to Wall Street Journal Online grew to 695,000 as of March 31, 2004, up 3.0% from March 31, 2003 and up 0.9% on a sequential basis. Daily paid visitors to WSJ.com increased to 141,000 at the end of this quarter, up from 129,000 in the year-ago quarter.
