How Did Woodward’s Series Do?

The Washington City Paper recently reported that the Washington Post’s Chandra Levy series drove “wonderful amounts of traffic for washingtonpost.com.”

So how about Bob Woodward‘s recent “War Within” series? One source tells FishbowlDC that it did extremely well online and was among the five most read articles on the site every day they ran.

No More Short Series?

Sure, a Bob Woodward book isn’t the exact same thing as a series on Chandra Levy‘s murder, but we noticed that Woodward’s book excerpts are running far longer in the Washington Post than the Levy series did.

When the Post ran its 12 part Chandra Levy series, the pieces were quite short and digestible (about 1500 words each), prompting us and others to wonder whether “perhaps the Post is trying out a new type of series: More parts, smaller word counts.

Not everyone liked the shorter length, or at least didn’t think they were getting enough news in each one.

And with the Woodward excerpts running twice as long as the Levy series (and the Woodward excerpts will run over four days, not twelve as in the case of the Levy series), we have to wonder whether the original formula is back.

The WaPo’s Chandra Levy Series

The Washington Post began its — wait for it — twelve part series on Chandra Levy‘s murder yesterday.

Is twelve parts a bit much? We think so (and so does Slate, and one blogger names “Twelve stories that deserve a twelve-part series in the Washington Post more than the brutal murder of Chandra Levy seven years ago”), but perhaps the Post is trying out a new type of series: More parts, smaller word counts.

Consider the word counts of the first two days of the Chandra Levy series:

    Sunday: 1628
    Monday: 1470

…and the word counts of the first two days of the posts “Angler” series on Dick Cheney:

    Sunday: 5000+
    Monday: 5000+
