I was curious to see if I could gage the traffic and impact of The Huffington Post on this the 10 day anniversary of their launch. Clearly plenty of “buzz” has been generated, but what about readers?
- Week 1 [5/9-5/15] Average Daily visitors (range) – 550,000 to 700,000
Week 2 [5/16-5/22] Average Daily visitors (range)- 250,000 to 400,000
I’ll throw into my guesstimate that there was probably a million visitor day in the first week, perhaps May 10th. Also, I’d bet my SWAG numbers are at least in the ballpark of reality…
Of course I could have just asked Arianna Huffington or Andrew Breitbart what the actual traffic number were (assuming they’d part with that information), but where’s the fun in that?
