Steemit Statistics & Big Datas: 🚀 End of July 2019 Update 🚀steemCreated with Sketch.

in #bitcoin2 years ago (edited)

Thanks to ALL of you, Steemit is still alive, stabilizing and preparing for the next Bull Run !

We reached 12.2 mn visits in July 2019!

There is an important difference between total visitors to a site and unique ones. In this case the 12.2mn include the multiple times a person visited the website.

Therefore, as a good Steemian you probably connect everyday which will make you count for a total of 30 visits.

Therefore, how many "unique users" does Steemit has?

This is a very important question that I will try to answer later on. According to the Beta Analysis from the website I use to compile these datas, it is around 7mn (vs c.7.39mn in June) !

One quick word about the Methodology

  • Datas can come from multiple sources listed in the end of this post
  • These sources get their raw datas from companies working with them and sharing their datas in order to get access to competitor's ones, browsers add-ons, in-app softwares which allow the Big Data to have a very large panel of users (north of 20mn) in order to statistically have the number of users/visits…
  • I use these raw datas to make excels tables, graphs…

I] Traffic

Daily Steemit Traffic

In January 2018, we experienced the best daily numbers at 1.5mn+; they decreased a little under 1.5mn in February.
Unfortunately the daily traffic on Steemit slowed down to c.400 000 in December 2018. Let’s hope it is just a little setback

In April 2019, the average daily traffic was closer to 450k per day. In May it increased a little more.

Another, explanation could be that people spend more time on apps (Partiko, Steepshot, Dtube, Steemmonster, eSteem…) which are not accounted in this analysis.

Numbers are still low BUT it is stabilizing would be more accurate since January 2018 !

Steemit website is ranked 5,461 worldwide. In June, it was sitting at 5,316.
Steemit kept on deteriorating its ranking as it ranked 1400+ last year.

Google Trends

Google Trend is an Indice based on 100, which means that 100 represents the week when most people searched for "Steemit" on Google.

Google Trends are still very low but there is hope as Bitcoin Google Trend is increasing slowly again, maybe more crypto users joining decentralized platforms?

Bitcoin Google Trend Graph

Steemit Traffic share by country

In the Top 5, the strongest traffic increase came from United-Kingdom with +5.07% visits!

Mobile Traffic is increasing compared to last month as it represents 50.1% of the total

This is increasing as it was only c.42% in January 2019

This is useful to know how people use the Steem platform. Initiatives like @partiko (mobile app), @esteemapp (mobile app), , @appics (Instagram), @actifit , @steemhunt , @utopian-io … will probably help the community to grow on mobile phones.

Be Careful with the Number of Visits

Also, remember that if you connect from a different device (home/work computer, mobile phone, tablet) you will count as a "new visitor" on each of these devices.

So as an example, let's say you connected at home, at work and in the subway. You would represent 3 visits out of these 1mn+ Daily Visits.

II] Marketing Mix

Organic Search is once again improving and represents 67,3% of the incoming Traffic.

Organic search is when people research on Google. As the number of quality bloggers on Steemit increase, our content has a higher probability of being listed in Google's Top results.

Different Channels:

Direct: When you type in you Web browser
Mail: When you connect to through an e-mail link
Referrals: When you connect to through a link found on another website (github…)
Social: When you connect to Steemit through a Facebook, Twitter, Instagram… page or link
Organic Search: When you type a search term like "Crypto" on Google and you click on one of the following steemit link proposed to you

Traffic Share Evolution since inception of this analysis

The Organic Search Strategy which means the Content Strategy is working as people come across Steemit looking for Crypto, Blog, Travel, etc… related articles.

Referring Social Pages

Youtube represented 35% of all the social platform incoming traffic. Reddit is also a strong source of new visits on the Steemit Platform. Last month, Facebook was the first Social Media to bring traffic to with a 32.4% contribution.

To be honest, I don’t really get how some of these requests lead you to Steem but… it does.

What are Steemians main interests?

Age Distribution

III] Steemit website metrics

You feel a bit confused about these 3 metrics? Let me explain.

  • Bounce Rate is the % of people that leave the Website after just navigating on a single Webpage. The lower, the Better
  • Daily Pageviews per Visitor is the average number of pages a visitor opens. The Higher, the Better
  • Daily Time on Site is the full time a visitor spend on the website before closing the internet Webpage. The Higher the Better

Metrics improved a lot compared to last month, especially the Bounce rate and pageviews per visitor. I dot not really know how to explain it but it is quite positive. It means we have a sticky Steemian userbase that just WILL not let go ! :D

My assumptions for July 2019

  • Total visits to 12,2mn
  • Assumption of Total unique visitors in July: 6.5-7mn
  • Total Daily visitors: 350-370k
  • Assumption of Total Daily Unique visitors: 220-250k

This is a collective achievement and I would like to congratulate all of us! We need to do better and get back to the January 2018's type of numbers.

This monthly report makes me very optimistic about STEEM's future !

As you probably all followed, we have a new communication strategy. We have Steemit Inc. delivering on numerous fronts (including HF21). The community is continuing to build. Just look at our dapps ecosystem and the latest @steemmonsters guild release (app coming sooooon :D) or @actifit @steem-engine token !

We have so many projects that have matured, such an amazing Community and with Crypto prices bouncing we might have a chance to attract new users very soon!

Bring your friends, engage with fellow Steemians and make little Tribes !

Posted from my blog with SteemPress :

Nice analysis but without aggregating the data from Steempeak, Partiko, Busy, Esteem etc with the Steemit data its not reflective of the amount of people actually using the Steem blogging platform.

It is definitely what I intend to do with the solo by platform 😉.
Do you have any other “major” ones that come to your mind ?

Posted using Partiko iOS

That was also my question... If this included traffic from platforms. I think platforms like eSteem are suprinsingly common use. I use platforms almost exclusively.

Thank you for your analysis..
In addition to the 6 places you mentioned @partiko, there are nearly 20 other blogs, which are also linked to the STEEM platform.
So in terms of encryption blogs, STEEM is still the first platform.
Although it has fallen to a low price, I believe it will pick up soon.

Thanks for that great analysis. I’m new in this community so I got gladly surprised about Venezuela’s second place in traffic by country and I’m still wondering on that 66,3% of “other” Steemians interests, what kind of subjects there can be? Hope to learn more about blockchain and crypto coins here.

"To be honest, I don’t really get how some of these requests lead you to Steem but… it does."

Me neither xD,

Thanks for the data.

Ahah I laughed at your comment.
The beauty of the internet I guess 🧐

Your analysis is very explicit..Then from the chart I observed there are more males and females..I will make sure I invite more of my female friends to the platform..

Posted using Partiko iOS

Thank you 🙏. This would be a great way to fill the gap.

excelente idea

Thanks much

You are more than welcome 😉

I stick to steem since starting on November 2017, i am one of those “loyals” to this blockchain, posting content and engaging users.

I prefer to use mobile apps, until steempeak and steem engine came.

I, we, are many, we are millions.

Posted using Partiko iOS

Thank you for your cheerful message, I personally Believe that even if STEEM was 0.01$.
I think I would still be here :D

This is the beauty of our blockchain, the community members are the most mature in the blockchainosphere.

Posted using Partiko iOS

The number of steem accounts on steem blockchain is about 1.24 million only. But the actual number of account holders are much smaller because many people hold more than one account and some hold hundreds of accounts. That means a major part of these 6.5 - 7 million visitors are non account holders, who merely visit, read and leave without participating in the steem economy.

Exactly, you found the major point of this analysis. 65% of visits are organic, mostly by people OUTSIDE of the STEEM ecosystem.
We have to find a way to make them be a part of our Community.

Indeed, I hope it will kickstart some kind of STEEM rally onboarding more new users and making them willing to stay.

Very good analysis but I think you have missed traffic in other Steem dApps like share2steem, steemhunt and actifit which enable users to post without coming to the steemit website.

It is quite sad that there are less female users on Steem. Hope to see that change soon! 😊

Do you have news from the dev team? Did they abandon the project ?

Posted using Partiko iOS

no, there seems to be no news really, Its a shame, some explenation would have been great and the project was so cool. I guess it has something to do with the spam blocker that steemit has integrated that kept blocking their posts (or something along those lines) but there is no clear answer

Oh I did not know!!! When did this happen

Delighted with your excellent explanation the graphics are a great contribution ..

Thank you for your kind words. It was a pleasure to make them for my fellow Steemians

Wonderful analysis @vlemon... Steemit is progressing and gradually attaining greater heights. I'm following you @vlemon and truly your work on steemit is just so amazing. Nice one!!!

Hi there ! Thank you for such kind words and for sharing the STEEM love.
Let's get this back on track!

Very cool! I am always to see these statistics.
Noob question, do visits through applications like eSteem Surfer count as "visits" to the site as well?

Nope they are not included, only URL is

Thanks for the analysis, I knew that Venezuelans are among the countries that use steemit the most, but I didn't think we were in second place.

It is a need for survival over there ? How is the current situation?

Posted using Partiko iOS

It's pretty hard, every day is a battle, even for those of us who have income through cryptos or foreign currency.

Things are getting more difficult, there are recurrent failures of internet and electricity, food is very expensive, especially protein, for example at home we have enough time without eating meat or buying milk when before they were products that could not be missing. The streets are very unsafe, the country is immersed in crime and corruption everywhere, we can not raise our voices, everything is shit.

But here we are, resisting, hoping to get out of this nightmare someday.

Thank you for this insight. It is difficult to understand from a foreign country if still a big chunk of the population supports Maduro. If so, what are their reasons?

I can assure you that more than 90% of the people do not agree with the administration of the country, but they control the military corps, the natural resources and very important, the food. there are many people who are unhappy in their homes but are forced to give them support in exchange for subsidized food, very little, the basic thing, but it is enough to control a good part of the population.

It is as if our legs have been cut off, but you must beg your executioner so that he can give you a pair of crutches, and don't forget to smile and give thanks when you receive them, or at least the promise that they are on the way, don't betray him because then your executioner will be angry with you and you won't have your crutches and everything will be your fault.

I know it's a bizarre example, but our reality is quite bizarre. Social control is tremendous and psychological cynicism bends the weakest minds, indeed there are people living in misery and supports the rulers with the hope that one day they will have their crutches. But if we had the option to choose, we would choose a better future.

It is hard for me to believe that in a country in crisis as it is seen, this second place in Venezuela, it will be necessary to see well what the flow of cryptocurrencies is and its origin and origins ... that does not matter to me, the rest is perfect your report .. .

Wow. That's a great collection and explanation of analytical data.

You got a 6.26% upvote from @promobot courtesy of @steemium!

@vlemon, 7 Million users 👥 are really encouraging and good to see that numbers are getting into the pace and i am really enjoyed this DATA Analysis work. Keep up the great work and stay blessed.

nice bro!

Still a long way to go as even June seems better than July. However, this is just steemit, other dapps included might bring the figures very high

Hey @vlemon, here is your BEER token. Enjoy it!

Do you already know our [BEER Crowdfunding](

The transactions in Venezuela will continue mostly because of the crisis that is being suffered, it does not make much sense that in a country with crisis it has that volume of transactions, it is mostly due to money laundering from corruption, drugs and crimes.

It's a great analysis, your article taught me a lot, Thanks for taking the time to do it.

gracias por la informacion

Interesting data for sure! Some of this confirms some trends I noticed. I think Steem has the possibility of being a revolutionary tool for people without interference from governments but we'll see.

It could, It just needs to fix its economics and stop these whales 🐳 from selling it cheap. Some system must be implemented to counterbalance this 😂
