On growth and results

Published by Evgeny Tchebotarev · February 1st 2010

We have officially launched the web-site on October 31, 2009 with a «private beta», meaning that nothing was visible to the outsider. So far, we have managed through November, December and January. Google Analytics statistics for January 2010: 189,484 unique visitors and 1,196,532 pageviews This January brought some pretty amazing statistics for us: 189,484 unique visitors and almost 1.2 million pageviews. It's always good to put it into perspective, of course. Consider this: the first version of 500px, launched in early 2005 and lived through 2008, had a maximum reach of 35,000 unique visitors. The new site has reached a sixfold increase in traffic in just three months. Even when compared to the last months traffic, the stats are still quite impressive - a 312% increase in unique visits. Google Analytics statistics for Decembre 2009: 60,541 unique visitors and 546,765 pageviews So, where do we go from here? Our February's goal is to top 1,500,000 pageviews and increase unique visitors to 240,000. Not bad for a marketing budget of $0!
