At a time when newspapers are trying to turn online readership into advertising revenue, 17 of the top 30 US newspaper Web sites saw a year-over-year decline in the time users spent on site in May, according to Nielsen data reported by Editor & Publisher.

NYTimes.com, USAToday.com, WashingtonPost.com, and the online edition of the Chicago Sun-Times all saw decreases in the average per-person time on their sites last month.

There were exceptions. SFGate.com (the Web site of the San Francisco Chronicle), Boston.com, and the Web site of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, all saw increases in the same category.
