🚀 Steemit In Top 1,000 Site Worldwide! Traffic Is Still Exploding!

in cryptocurrency •  7 months ago

For the first time, Steemit just hit top 1000 sites in global rank and we are now a part of the largest sites worldwide. Steemit is growing very fast, there is no other word to define what is happening right now !

Once Smart Media Tokens (SMTs) launch, I'm sure it's only going to get even bigger.

With our continued support, we want now to break into the top 500 by the end of the year.

Growth does not seem to show signs of slowing down. Week after week we clearly see exponential growth with an average of 25-45K new accounts created. It will be interesting to see where the next few months take us!

Indeed, as Paul Graham rightly notes, the only thing essential to a startup is growth.

“It's hard to find something that grows consistently at several percent a week, but if you do you may have found something surprisingly valuable. If we project forward we see why.

A company that grows at 1% a week will grow 1.7x a year, whereas a company that grows at 5% a week will grow 12.6x. A company making $1000 a month (a typical number early in YC) and growing at 1% a week will 4 years later be making $7900 a month, which is less than a good programmer makes in salary in Silicon Valley. A startup that grows at 5% a week will in 4 years be making $25 million a month.”

If growth is such an important matter, then surely, we should be constantly monitoring it. After all, what gets measured, gets managed.

@tradewonk thank you for helping us stay excited about Steem by letting us know our main user interface steemit.com just made it into the top 1000 websites in the world along with the explanation of consistent growth compounding!

I will resteem this to help share the good news!

·

@jerrybanfield Thank you, i appreciate it!

·
·

@tradewonk thank you for the upvote on my comment and I just resteemed now! Nice work making it so high on the trending page!

I just followed you and took a look at https://steemd.com/@tradewonk where I see you have one of the top 5% of witness votes. You currently have no votes for witness which is the case with 80% of users on Steemit. Witness votes are the most important we make because we are choosing who makes the decisions on the version of Steem we run and which accounts create new blocks. The easiest way to fully participate is to set a proxy to handle all witness votes because the proxy then does the work of choosing which witnesses to vote for out of the 30 votes.

Will you please join me in voting for witness at https://steemit.com/~witnesses by either voting for me and/or other witnesses you wish to support or setting me as a proxy because this will help us collaborate in growing Steem together and I take a lot of time each week to update and maintain my witness votes?

·
·
·

@jerrybanfield Thank you for the explanation. I honestly have not taking the time i should to figure that witness thing out, but i have seen alot of your work and i like it and i also think you put alot of time in it. I have set you as a proxy.

·

·
·

@tradewonk thank you very much for setting a proxy! You can see our witness votes any time at https://steemd.com/@jerrybanfield.

When you have any suggestions for who to vote or remove, will you use my discord at https://jerrybanfield.com/contact/ to reach me because this is the best way to stay in touch?

I am about to follow you.

It's a pleasure meeting you.
Please consider me as a protigee

·

Good News , Hope Steem Price will follow this trend

·

It's great to see how the "big" people of steemit use part of their time to support and help other people grow.
My respects and I vote you as a witness right now.

Here in Japan Steemit is still in its earliest stage. There are even some guys who are planning a similar platform only for Japanese
Probably it is less intimidating since they won’t need English and can be closer community.
Wondering if this will succeed too but I rather hope the Steemit gospel will spread around here more. Here in our city Niigata we formed a small Steemit community where we are also using a group account. @steemcityniigata

Let’s all make this platform even greater than now, it will be beneficial for everybody involved

·

Indeed, Let’s all make this platform even greater!!

·
·

HOW? It's impossible))

·
·

Once it becomes more interactive in trading it will show its greatest potential.

Peace.

·

Yeah, most non English speaking countries end up doing something like this. It pays off big if it works out. I used to have a Mixi in like 2006 to communicate with my Japanese friends, but stopped using it haha. A lot of them use Facebook now anyway.

Great post! Follow me and i will follow you. I will auto upvote anyone who is following me.

Hopefully one day the STEEM blockchain will have multiple websites in the top 1000!

Those Alexa rankings are next level good. As a digital marketer in a past life, I know that businesses would KILL for this exposure.

They spend all their time on Twitter, Facebook etc, getting nowhere, when they could simply use the Steemit domain to blog longer form, branded content WITH INSTANT SEO RANKING VALUE.

Steemit and as a result, STEEM, is so undervalued that it's just ridiculous.

·

I don't think it's undervalued, it's just still very new and still in beta compare to other social media sites, but the growth have been massive so far.

·
·

That's true. Did you see Ned's latest video where essentially he says that they have been slacking in the visual and marketing area of Steemit's development? Just the beginning and it's STILL producing numbers like this on Alexa. I'm optimistic. :)

I've given you a follow and will hopefully see you around mate.

Great statistics, thanks a lot for that ^_^
that refers to steemit popularity.

I tried to use "similarweb.com" which Alexa's alternative.
And steemit global rank on it is 1500 which is very fine too :D

Also, steemit is number 232 globally in news and media category which is amazing too :)
Here you can check it: https://www.similarweb.com/website/steemit.com

Thank you again :)

·

Nice to see these statistics on growth. Steemit could grow up big--Reddit 2.0 with Steem/blockchain tech with financial incentives.

Awesome post. I was wondering how fast this is growing. I started in October and got bored with it. I'm giving it another shot tho because their is still so much room for growth. Plus supporting a blockchain social media is cool.

Wow , great result ! Do you think steem can reach 30 dollar at the end of the year?

Steem to the moon!

Can't wait to see it in TOP 100 :P

This is indeed very promising, and until there's no real competition in this market I don't see the numbers dropping anytime soon. It'll be interesting to see how the platform will keep up with the traffic :).

·

The problem is; high traffic, but no retention. I see post about how "great" steemit is everyday on the front page. Yet it's only the same 5 users post on the front page talking about it... like 10 of the same users on trending everyday...

·
·

You can follow whoever you want you think creating nice content and suddently your feed will only show things you want to read.

·
·

Yea in the beginning it's really about finding the accounts with value. The first days on Steemit I read the beginners articles and I saw some of the most ridiculous tips ever: "Just follow the top 150 accounts, upvote every article and gain the most curation awards possible" I'm sorry, but that's not what Steemit or any other blogging platform is about. I took my time to go over the boards that interested me (psychology, motivation, philosophy etc) and when I found a good, well-written article I was research the author. If the author had more interesting posts, I pushed the follow button. After a few days I had a decent feed with articles that interested me, I could learn from and could open a discussion about in the comments section. That made my experience on Steemit a lot better than purely following random accounts.

this is pretty exciting, thanks for sharing the info

thats great!

Buckle up.

We are going to the moon, boys!

·
·
·

I wonder how Steemit will do once more and more people sign up.

Very good info. Just goes on to say "collective power".

Yeah, I am from eastern Europe and everyone I tell about Steemit & it's concept - that you get payed for creating content - they just don't really get it.

Most common responses are - It's a pyramid scheme or it will not survive for long.

But it's really good to see every-week some positive news, like entering top 1000 website, or some big Youtubers joining in. hot-coffee-rounded-cup-on-a-plate-from-side-view.png

In my country, Venezuela, this great platform called Steemit is our best tool to get out of the crisis. It has changed many lives. In many aspects, one of them is to offer us: food, health, studies, among other things, and seeing these statistics well explained, I confirm that we are in the best platform of the 21st century and that the best is yet to come. . thanks for sharing. @tradewonk

wow indeed!!!!! mind = blown! good times ahead!!! thanks tradewonk!!!!

Wow thats a great news for steemians :)

We are going to the moon guys. 🚀 😂

Great, I believe it gonna make to the top 500 very soon. Excited to fly with Steemit!

Wow!!
It’s a great news for all Steemitian. Feeling very happy to be with Steemit.
Thanks.

I'm super pumped about this. What are smart media tokens??

·

Nevermind, just found this site that explains it.

https://smt.steem.io/

Steem has such huge potential long term. I personally am very excited about where we are heading. More and more people are getting involved in the Steem platform every single day as the number of places where it is used expands. I'm looking forward to the next year. I

OMG thank you for breaking these statistics down, I was just wanting something like this to analyze.

Its growing worldwide...but in the US it has gone from 500 to almost 800 again...the price being down has hurt its traffic here I'm assuming.

That is not good! Why? Beacuse it is still in beta?!? When are we going to fix stuff and lunch real deal. We still dont have algorithms. Same posts everywhere, only whale can make you successful, there is no transparently. I have only 70 following and on my home page is a mess. All bad stuff and then some good. C mon we need some improvments. More people will be here more mess will be if we wont start asap.

Damn!! The growth is crazy, love to be a part of it!!

I belong in Silicon Valley! So let us get this steem thing going so we all can live happy and no have to worry about money any longer! I upvoted and followed

This is great news. This platform has so much potential, especially if it takes off internationally.

This post has received gratitude of 24.40 % from @appreciator thanks to: @tradewonk.

All of us who have been in the community and contributing should be proud of this phenemonal growth. We had something to do with it. We are contributing to something that is larger than ourselves. I am proud to be a part of this community and I thank all those who have spent countless hours in the community producing great content. Thank you for the exponential growth!

I feel like as long as steemit is marketed as a social media site that gives the value back to the users, then mainstream adoption will continue to happen.

As more people realize that other sites that they tried to build a community on are stagnating and placed in a stranglehold due to the very thing that monetized them, they will visit and bring their loyal followers as well. This leaves me to believe that we could see steem in the double digits in the not too distant future.

Your welcome Jerry. If you have time, can you take a look at my post to give me an honest critique of my work. Especially my fee painting post. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. Thank you.

Steemit has an incredible amount of potential. I think it'll be around for years to come and it is easily one of the best long-term investments in the crypto space. Most other cryptos just aren't being used as much as Steemit is

Steem's growing at an exponential rate.

We are making history, guys

I always follow your post everything is good if any time visit my blog @mamaathiyya

Awesome post. I was wondering how fast this is growing. I started in October and got bored with it. I'm giving it another shot tho because their is still so much room for growth. Plus supporting a blockchain social media is cool

It is absolutely mind-boggling to think how far Steemit has come, in such little time!

Thanks for this awesome information! ♥

I am from Turkey and nobody knows steemit now. Turkish people like to be internet. They use often twitter, facebook and instagram. I think that they are the first who use twitter.

If steemit is known by Turks, It supports to grow steemit.

I hope I am in the beginning of steemit.

I think steem is one of most perspective currencie, i've read about crypto like every fucking day and yet, steem is my numero onu currenice. Even though i do not have enough money to pay my bills and invest( not yet) im thinking long term hodl. Cheeres

Very exciting times indeed. Steemit has so much potential. Changes to the interface will be needed as growth grows IMO. Thanks for the post! @dan21050

Hope you don’t mind if I resteem this 👍

Steemit was mentioned on the JoeRogan experience this last week, so that's 1million views right there.

This is good news. Every new Steem user adds more marketing awareness to the community.

Steemit seems to be in an adoption S-Curve. One of the only functioning platforms with real use application in cryptography.

I feel very blessed to be a part of this wonderful community and platform. It is really amazing just how fast Steemit is growing. The new daily account's numbers are just crazy. I tell ya, since found Steemit, I am hardly on Facebook any more. and I am sure a lot of people are the same.. Thanks for the break down.. Great post, resteeming

Great news. It caught me by surprise realising the incipience of this community. I considered it too be reaching way more countries than this. I guess there is a lot of room to grow.

Wow! congratulations to us! Steemit rocks.

Saludos, a todos los que somos ya una familia, les escribo desde Venezuela. La nación que hasta hace pocos años era el ejemplo de la prosperidad por sus enormes recursos energéticos. Pues hoy, este País está postrado ante la más absoluta crisis económica en 500 años y steemit ha venido creciendo muy rápido entre nosotros porque además de darnos un aliento económico a los que la usamos nos permite sacar lo mejor de nosotros. Nos permite hacernos libre y auténticos.

Valores para la reconstrucción de nuestro País. Gracias steemit.

Congrat!! And I look forward to SMT! Steemit will be must kill the FB!!!

Most people still haven't heard of Steemit so the growth potential is huge. I think exposure from people with large established audiences on other platforms is one of the biggest factors right now.

Congratulations :)
