Super Summer Stats From WikiAnswers

Traffic on WikiAnswers really heated up this summer. Today Answers.com announced that key metrics for WikiAnswers, its UGC site, improved by approximately 50 percent since the end of June 2007.

  • Questions increased by 50 percent since June 26, from approximately 500,000 to over 760,000 today; registered users have increased to over 280,000 in the same period, up from approximately 200,000.
  • According to comScore, unique monthly visitors in the U.S. increased by approximately 50 percent as well, from 2.22 million for June to 3.36 million for August.
  • Daily page views have increased by 50 percent as well.

"To have more than tripled it in only ten months demonstrates a real excitement about what we call 'Q&A the wiki way'. This most recent increase of 50 percent, over the summer months when Internet usage generally drops, is further confirmation,” explained Bob Rosenschein, Chairman and CEO of Answers Corporation. "The community …has really crystallized."

Over the coming months, WikiAnswers will become integrated as a central component of Answers.com. You can read the full release here.
