New York, New York, UNITED STATES

NEW YORK, March 05, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Publishers Clearing House (PCH), a leading digital entertainment and commerce destination for millions of U.S. consumers, and recently top ranked “Multi-Category” publisher by Comscore, today announced rising “time spent” rates, standing above 98% of the Top 100 digital media companies and behind Netflix and Hulu. The average user on Publishers Clearing House properties spent 9.9 minutes on the site per visit. Based on an evaluation of Comscore’s most recent audience report, PCH surpasses popular consumer destinations including Facebook, Amazon, Expedia, Buzzfeed and more than 90 others.

“As an entertainment destination for millions of people, with significant adoption in the heartland of America, we remain highly focused on maximizing consumer engagement, which we see continuing to rise and far surpassing industry standards,” said Steve Bagdasarian, President, Media, at Publishers Clearing House. “In this attention economy, this kind of traction is our currency, because riveted consumer attention ties directly to business outcomes. It’s incredibly validating to see our ‘time spent’ numbers bypass so many world-class brands and stand only behind popular consumer media sites such as Netflix and Hulu.”

In January, PCH announced its ranking as a top “Multi-category” publisher by Comscore, credited for its more than 17 million total unique visitors for the month of December 2019. The “Multi-Category” segment includes some of the most recognizable consumer-facing publishers in the business, such as Google, Buzzfeed, Sony, and Axel Springer, and destinations that contain multiple content areas such as entertainment, gaming, and e-commerce.
