NEW YORK, Dec. 28 (UPI) -- Online retail traffic rose 27 percent on Christmas Day compared to Christmas Day 2011, a U.S. marketing firm reported Friday.

Experian Marketing Services said 115.5 million visitors browsed the top retail Web sites on Dec. 25.

Overall, holiday shopping online was up 10 percent in 2012 compared to 2011, the market research firm said.
