While Digg continues on its spectacular decline, rival Reddit seems to be racking up traffic each month and turning out impressive stats after impressive stats.
Late last night/early today, Reddit founder Alexis Ohanian tweeted about the traffic stats on the aggregator for October, and the numbers are pretty staggering. Reddit pulled in 28 million unique visitors in the last 20 days, with a stunning 1.8 billion pageviews for the month. The site hit 1 billion PVs in February, and r/funny led the pack of subreddits getting to a million readers in September.
TheNextWeb posted some Digg stats for comparison:
By contrast, its chief competitor Digg has been doing about 8.3 million unique visitors per month according to Google’s DoubleClick Ad Planner data (which pegs Reddit’s numbers at 24 million, making it a not-accurate-but-reasonable-correct estimation) and has been mostly in decline. Twitter, on the other hand, is going gangbusters, with over 100 million active users per month and over 400 million uniques.
