Steemit Statistics & Big Data: πŸš€ End of January 2018 Update πŸš€

in steemit β€’Β  9 months ago

Thanks to ALL of you, Steemit is growing fast!

We reached 48.5 mn (+41%) visits in January ALONE!

There is an important difference between total visitors to a site and unique ones. In this case the 48.5mn 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 13,28mn !

I] Traffic

Daily Steemit Traffic

The number of Daily visits in October was at 600k+. In November it improved to 800k+ and finally we crossed 1mn+ in December!

Look at January! On average Steemit had 1.5mn+ visits per day !

Steemit website is ranked 1,091 worldwide vs 1,390 last month
Steemit is ranked 598 in the US
Steemit kept on improving its ranking as it ranked 15,000+ 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.

Steemit Traffic share by country

In the Top 5, the strongest traffic growth came once again from South Korea with +79,06% visits and Germany with +83,14%!

Mobile Traffic is catching up fast as it represents 41.6% of the total

This is useful to know how people use the Steem platform. Initiatives like eSteem (mobile app),, SteepShot (Instagram), Zappl (Twitter like), 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 52,4% of the incoming Traffic. This is an increase of 1point compared to December.
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 during the last 8 months

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

Referring Social Pages

Facebook represents 31.5% of all the social platform incoming traffic. Reddit is also a strong source of new visits on the Steemit Platform

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

My January assumptions

  • Total visits to 48,45mn
  • Assumption of Total unique visitors in January: 13,28mn
  • Assumption of Total Daily unique visitors: 800-900k

This is a collective achievement and I would like to congratulate all of us!

Really goes to show how much potential crypto and Steemit has... already a rank 26 crypto with reach of only less than a million unique daily visitors. There is so much room for growth on Steemit and cryptos, looking very bullish in 2018!!


Indeed it is, I just hope they will improve the Steemit platform because let's be honest, this is prehistoric.
Take care and Keep Steeming!




By the statistics you show us, it seems that steemit will be the leading social media in near future. The given information signals towards the success of the network. I am happy being part of it.


I feel the same way too! I am happy to be part of this great platform!

Yes, Indeed !
To the moon !

Steemit is the fastest growing network, i concured with your data analysis, steemit web site received large number if people in there website due to platform you express yourself with digital currency initiative.


Yup, lately South-Koreans have joined massively !

Thanks for sharing this update @vlemon! It's great to have all of this data in one place.

I would really appreciate your support on my new initiative!


You are welcome, I am very busy but I did read your PM about your initiative, I'll try to answer very soon.
Take care my friend.


Thank you! We just launched over on my page. Thank you!

Wow, I didn't realize the male/female ratio...that's a huge difference. Thanks for all the statistics!!


You are welcome my dear @steem-samiam

How do you come up with all these data?
I can't figure out where to look when ever I am quite enthused to look how Steemit is doing.


Through different websites listed at the bottom :D

phenomenal statistics @vlemon.


Thank you @anarcotech !
I am glad you liked it.

So Steem no sign of slowing down despite the fluctuation in the currency. This can only be good for the platform. I am very confident in Steem and will continue to look for opportunities to invest. Thaks for the awesome report!


Indeed, and as Cryptos are finally increasing today, I hope it will give another boost !
Take care @fabrew

Thank you for the interesting statistics. I think that the gender distribution is also influencing the statistics of the main interests of the visitors. Would be interesting to know the direction of the causal arrow here. Maybe it could be possible to combine the visitors per county with information about county size and/or number of internet users. This could give some information on steem penetration of society. Very interesting would be the gender distribution on the country level. Is the data available on that resolution ?

That's very interesting because the demographic data there reflects more or less what I imagined it to be so it is nice to get some confirmation there. This is certainly the sort of growth that is good for the platform AND good for the currency of STEEM.


Indeed, To the moon my fellow Steemians !

Excellent report and first time I see it. It answers most of my questions regarding DAU, MAU, Monthly visitors, Source / Origin

The best demographics I have seen and very helpful if you are into Marketing


Thank you for your kind comment !
Don't hesitate to share the love ;)


Your post was resteemed to about 850

Some of that search traffic could be people using Google to find articles on steemit instead of the internal search tool. Or does that also include the use of the search tool at the top of the page?


Organic Traffic comes mostly from Google Searches. For example, if you look for a recipe on Google, if one of the link is a Steemit Article, then you would connect to Steemit via Google.


Right but my point is whether the organic stat shows how people outside of the Steemit universe are finding content on Steemit. IOW, how is the general public discovering steemit content? If I use Google instead of the search function at the top of the page that means I've already discovered Steemit and I might think the search function at the top sucks so prefer to go outside and use Google. I've done SEO professionally so tend to drill a little deeper into these stats :)

Steemit is only at the beginning of it's journey.

To the moon, boys!

The other half helps holders of Steem power earn about 60% APR on a delegation to me!

All of these statistics are just music to my ears. I fell in love with Steem very quickly and this just justifies the love. Really great research.

Perhaps a new piece could be about STEEM's blockchain activity in comparison to the other big players in crypto. I love using to see just how transactions are being processed at any given time. STEEM leading the way in transactions and efficiency...ahead of BTC and ETH COMBINED.

Ohh I joined it just a week ago and I am getting addicted to steemit!
Why would anyone not want to be part of this community??
It seems Its just a matter of time, steemit gonna be one of the top ranking social media sites.
All the best everyone :)

Really nice! I am an early steemit investor, I started my blog quite late, but I don't complain! I won't sell my steem at all. They are doing well! This thing will get bigger and bigger from under the radar to the highest peaks. So happy that I have invested in that time!
