Wired magazine has registered a 24 per cent growth in the number of advertisement pages, thus making it the fastest growing title at Conde Nast this year.
The science and technology magazine suffered a steep decline in 2009 as its advertisement pages plunged 40 per cent during that year, according to Magazine Publishers of America.
The magazine also saw its popularity soar on the iPad with its first iPad issue in June selling 105,000 copies and subsequent issues selling about 32,000 copies. iMonitor has also named it one of the top iPad apps among magazine publications. During the period, it sold about 83,000 copies of the print edition on newsstands.
Editor Chris Anderson informed that developing the iPad app costs about 20 per cent more than creating the print edition, due largely to interactive elements and video clips. The magazine aims to reduce the costs by about 10 per cent in coming months, he added.
