Reddit Earns 56 Billion Pageviews in 2013
2013 was a big year for Reddit. The site saw 56 billion pageviews from 731 million unique visitors, according to the Reddit blog.
Reddit users are spreading the wealth among posts; out of over 40 million posts in 2013, the most popular post had just 3.6 million pageviews.
Reddit (registered) users submit content as links or text posts. Posts are then ranked as users vote each submission ‘up’ or ‘down;’ this rank determines where a post appears on the site.
Here’s a few more of Reddit’s year-end stats:
- average visit duration of 15 min 55 sec
- 404,603,286 comments
- 6.7 billion total votes (comment and link votes)
The U.S. was by far the top country in terms of unique visitors, with 48.5 million. Next in line was Canada (7.4 million), followed by the United Kingdom (6.1 million).
Founded in 2005, Reddit has played an interesting role in internet culture, but has yet to achieve profitability. A new electronic bazaar, ‘Reddit Gifts,’ is meant to change that; the site takes a 15-20% cut from every purchase made on the bazaar. Even Bill Gates participated in the “mostly geek-oriented” Secret Santa exchange on Reddit Gifts this holiday season (Reuters).
Will Reddit’s niche market – with users that are notoriously wary of heavy advertising - respond well to this venture into e-commerce?
