Gawker’s Traffic Numbers Are Worse Than Anyone Anticipated:

What does the network’s traffic look like now that two and a half months have passed? Turns out, according to Gawker’s public statistics,  things are much, much worse than was originally reported. Yes, the  redesign cut traffic in half almost instantly, but instead of coming  back, even more readers left the site behind.
Here, a graph we put  together using the number of unique visitors to five sites in the  Gawker network — Gawker, Gizmodo, Jezebel, io9 and Deadspin — from  November through today. The April numbers are only for the month  to-date, but it isn’t hard to see, now that we’re twenty days in, how  many of these sites will need a big boost to even reach March’s traffic.

  9. transpondster said: you’re looking at the wrong stats. gawker IT group probably doesn’t have its report tagging done correctly. visits/pageviews are nothing like this chart in reality. check quantcast: oi51.tinypic.com/919wma….

    If this trend continues, Gawker will be getting negative page hits by the end of the year. This pleases me.

    Those numbers are not worse than I expected. I completely expected this. I’ll just poke Denton a bit, point at the graph...

    It’s not nice to kick people when they’re down. So I’m just going to nudge Denton a little with my toe. And maybe...
