The Hill has surpassed Politico as the most-read authority for U.S. political news and global insight, analysis and commentary.

According to the comScore numbers released today, The Hill recorded 10,577,000 unique visitors in December, compared to Politico's 8,515,000 unique visitors.

That's a whopping 175.7 percent increase year over year for The Hill.

Jimmy Finkelstein, chairman of The Hill, said:

"The Hill has been on a steady path of accelerated growth over the past year, and this latest achievement is especially exciting.

"Our continued success has confirmed our mission of creating serious journalism for the web, and we look forward to sharing our plans for the future in the coming weeks."

The comScore numbers follow an independent study by SimilarWeb which found The Hill had the biggest year-over-year increase in traffic among all U.S. publishers through November.

SimilarWeb said The Hill reached a 72 percent year-over-year online traffic growth, the biggest among the 114 leading publishers studied, having increased its visits from 9.2 million to 15.9 million.

Last month, the social analytics company CrowdTangle named The Hill as one of the 15 biggest Facebook news pages in total interactions in 2015.

"If you had an award for the best performing news page of the year, The Hill would be the runaway favorite," CrowdTangle said.
