The Last Three Days

Published May 5th, 2011

It's time for some stats. We are delighted to inform that the last three days have seen the most traffic ever, propelling our ranking far above our regular numbers.

Since the server upgrades, which increased our capacity and processing power twofold and made site more responsive, we had some traffic gains, getting 73,700 visits on May 2, 74,000 on May 3 and a record 76,200 visits on May 4. May the 4th be with you, as some say.

By the way, on May 4 alone we served 550,000 pages, our another record!

On the day with highest traffic our site reach a rank of 3-thousand range. Which means, we were ranked in the top 4000 sites on the internet, a huge gain on our site!

We are looking forward to having 1,800,000 visits in the next 30 days, and continuing our growth together with our users :-)

I would actually be happier if you got your lightroom export plugin working with Jeffrey Friedl. I am really looking forward to that. Right now I am holding off on uploads or purchasing a pro account until this is worked out. I don't understand why you are happy about such small numbers? They would be so much bigger if you made it easier for photographers (the vast majority of which use lightroom) to upload images directly from lightroom via an export plugin.

I read about you guys on Thomas Hawks' blog (but didn't notice the discount code until I'd subscribed!). 500px seems to be exactly what I'm looking for for a Flickr replacement. Well done, it's fantastic. Keep up the good work and I'm looking forward to the Lightroom plugin and the iPad and iPhone app to go with it! :)
