The Inquisitr Books a Record Month

April 5, 2011

It’s been a while since I’ve done an update on stats for The Inquisitr, but a great month is always a good reason to share. We’ve floated in the 7-8m pv range for maybe the last 6 months or so (maybe longer, I didn’t check) and with the exception of Feb 2011 where we were just below 7m pv (28 days… with another two days it wouldn’t have been an issue) we’ve done well.

The good news is that in March 2011 we finally broke the 8 million page view mark, and we’re getting closer to breaking the 2m unique visitor figure as well. Indeed, in many ways the unique figure is possibly better again.

The good stuff from the breakdown: the biggest post only accounted for 1.63% of the page views, and the biggest posts after that 1.44%, 1.32%, 1.26% and 0.96%. In the early days we often relied on a couple of huge posts to get us up, today the traffic is well distributed across many many posts.

  1. 4364 on Compete, that is an awesome ranking! Woo!

  2. Interesting result! 8 million page views! And I am surprised that the bounce rate is at ~35% for a news/blog site. What's the secret sauce for that? 🙂

    Have you considered revealing those numbers on Google AdPlanner (which currently estimates only 1.5M PV in February) — you can do that easily by agreeing to show Analytics data on AdPlanner, since you are already blogging about it. Might impress potential advertisers with those numbers on AdPlanner.

  3. I'm not completely sure how I do that, but I'm willing to. Any chance scotty that you could ping me and explain how I can? duncan at Happy to work with u + do something to help u as well

    I remember when I started with IQ almost 2 years ago, I thought the 2-3 million mark was impressive…now I sit around trying to figure out what posts will get us to 10 million. I wonder if Mark Zuckerberg compared to his early days now sits around saying “How can we get Facebook to 1 Trillion PVs a month, these Billions of views are getting old.” LOL.

  6. Not bad. Not bad at all. finally broke the 2 million PV mark last month. Fortunately, we're still in the black. I'd love to hit 8m one of these days. Nicely done!

  7. Didn't I connect you and the PopCrunch peeps ?

  8. if u did u need to again, need help ad wise pls 🙂

  9. Chris
    so happy to see you're going so well and that I helped u in the early days getting there. Keep well and keep in touch

  10. You're a scholar and a gentlemen Steven Hodson, and no matter what happens this year, by god I'll find a way to pay you to write for me some how or some where even if I'm forced to sell the site (which I hope I won't of course.)

    BTW: I'd still like an invite onto one of ur podcasts, be it u have to play time zones with me 🙂

  11. it's pretty amazing really. We're doing 3x more traffic than I was with TechCrunch, and apparently then I did a good job 🙂

    Thx again for all your help and advice: you've become the silent partner without the ownership (if I could I would, no money to) but talking to you helps me so much.

  12. Yes, I can never thank you enough for that. Thanks, my friend.

    I’ve just started testing the waters and find myself reading into a lot of over-hyped crap.

    It’s so great to see it works and that people can make a decent living from it. All without getting into the blood sucking “do this and you’ll earn 6 figures per month” ponzi schemes.

    Keep up the good work! Already looking forward to seeing your next project.
