Compete.com, a web analytics company that tracks the web usage of 2 million individuals, issued the remarkable news that in September, among unique visits to news sites, the Huffington Post beat out the LA Times and the Washington Post.  The site’s visitors grew by over 18% since August.  The two print publications, on the other hand grew by  2.05% and -12.66% respectively over the same period.  Here’s the chart from Compete and Beet.TV has an interview with Eric Hippeau, CEO of HuffPo, who tells how the site will be monetized.
