Steemit Statistics & Big Datas: ๐Ÿš€ End of July 2019 Update ๐Ÿš€steemCreated with Sketch.

in #bitcoin โ€ข 4 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/visitsโ€ฆ
  • I use these raw datas to make excels tables, graphsโ€ฆ

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. Letโ€™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, eSteemโ€ฆ) 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?

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 โ€ฆ 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 (githubโ€ฆ)
Social: When you connect to Steemit through a Facebook, Twitter, Instagramโ€ฆ 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, etcโ€ฆ 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 donโ€™t really get how some of these requests lead you to Steem butโ€ฆ it does.

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 !

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰.
Do you have any other โ€œmajorโ€ ones that come to your mind ?

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. Iโ€™m new in this community so I got gladly surprised about Venezuelaโ€™s second place in traffic by country and Iโ€™m still wondering on that 66,3% of โ€œotherโ€ Steemians interests, what kind of subjects there can be? Hope to learn more about blockchain and crypto coins here.

"To be honest, I donโ€™t really get how some of these requests lead you to Steem butโ€ฆ it does."

Me neither xD,

Thanks for the data.

Ahah I laughed at your comment.
The beauty of the internet I guess ๐Ÿง

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..

I stick to steem since starting on November 2017, i am one of those โ€œloyalsโ€ 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.

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.

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.

not to mention the hf21 coming in 14 days to go

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