The New York Times broke its record for daily visits to its Website with close to 9 million yesterday (9/16), a spokesperson has told Beet.TV, citing internal numbers. The upheaval on Wall Street, coupled with the presidential campaign and hurricanes have added to to the record numbers, a spokesperson told me late this afternoon.
Traffic has been building for sometime at The Times, with some growth attributed to the end of the paid subscription model, Times Select. I've reposted my interview with Times online GM Vivian Schiller which was originally posted in October.
On the most recent Nielsen numbers, Times traffic is soaring, Editor & Publisher Reports:
The NYTimes****, which is the fifth most visited online current events news destination, advanced 52% in August to 19.8 million.
Earlier today we reported that Wall Street Journal had record traffic on Monday.

GigaOM, VentureBeat and ReadWriteWeb will be part of expanded technology coverage at the NYTimes****, the paper announced today. The announcement is part of a redesign of business pages along with a major increase in coverage in a number of sectors including "green" tech and economic issues. The redesigned page goes live today.
Yesterday I interviewed Vindu Goel, deputy technology editor at The Times about the expanded coverage including the arrangement with the power bloggers and the hiring of new staff reporters.
He said that the content from the blogs will start to surface on the paper's pages in October. He said that the blogs will send a feed of selected posts, five of which will be posted at a time. The posts will reside on The Times and will have button back to the blog's home page.
This development is similar to the Washington Post's syndication deal with paidContent and TechCrunch. Both blogs have a prominent location on the paper's tech page.
Last night I reached Matt Marshall, the editor and CEO of VentureBeat. He sent me this statement.
"The deal with the Times is just great for VentureBeat. It’s an endorsement of something we’ve been working hard to achieve, which is to publish content that is credible, edited, engaging and informative. It brings us potentially millions of more readers, and brings the companies we write about tons of more exposure."
Here's what Richard MacManus of RWW told us.
"This is great news for us, because it brings our brand of web technology news, reviews and analysis to a much wider audience. It also means that the innovative and often little known startups we write about daily get a chance to be seen in a mainstream publication. The New York Times has a reputation for quality and in-depth journalism, attributes that we strive for on ReadWriteWeb - so we're excited about this partnership. This is also further vindication that blogs are increasingly being accepted as mainstream news and analysis providers."
Here's Om's post. Here's Vindu's.

Disclosure: Beet Media has done video production services for The New York Times Company.
The New York Times has launched a new HD-format video player with a 16:9 wide-screen frame. Other new features include a redesigned video library, a "Most Viewed" rank, and tools to share videos to social sites like Facebook and Digg.
The new video player is from Brightcove, the Boston-based video services company. Previously, The Times streamed its video using The FeedRoom.
This is the first newspaper implementation of Brightcove 3, the company's new publishing solution. With the technology, The Times has the capability to stream video at DVD-quality of 1.5 megabits per second and higher.
Called Dynamic Delivery, it allows publishers to serve videos to users based on their connection speed. It is currently streaming HD video for Showtime and FEARNet, a Brightcove spokesperson told Beet.TV.
Plans are underway at the Times to deliver HD video online, Ann Derry, Video and Television Director told me in this interview. This would be the first newspaper to deliver video in true HD.
Beyond the newspaper, Times videos are distributed on on multiple platforms, including TiVo, broadcast television including NBC News and on JetBlue's flight entertainment.
Since video is being seen on so many platforms, the company is shooting and editing all of its videos on HD. Ann tells us: "We assume it can be anywhere. And if it's going to be anywhere, we want it to look good."
Brightcove has been doing well with newspaper publishers. It provides video publishing for Dow Jones, The Washington Post and others. The New York Times Company is an investor in Brightcove.

Disclosure: Beet Media LLC has done video production work under contract to The New York Times Company.
Bloggrunner, a mostly automatic news aggregator owned by The New York Times Company, has been surfacing up related stories from many blogs and news sources (including Beet.TV) to its technology and other pages since last November. In a big step forward in the integration with The Times, links organized by Bloggrunner are now on a new sort of the home page of the paper called Times Extra, the company announced today.
We reported the story of the initial integration last December when I interviewed Blogrunner creator Philippe Lourier. There's been quite a lot of buzz this morning on Read/Write/Web, TechCrunch and other blogs.
I've republished my interview with Philippe, who gives an overview of the platform.

Gina Bianchini, CEO of Ning, writes in The New York Times that the custom-label social network platform has been deployed on 600,000 networks. She is the guest author of the article. In September, we caught up with Gina on the campus of MIT where she was keynote speaker at the EmTech08 conference. Handling the interview for me was Jason Pontin, editor-in-chief of Technology Review.
We have reposted the interview today.
