I took note today that Business Insider writes that Conde Nast’s new Vogue.com is working, with traffic exploding by 500%. Most impressive is the 30 page views per unique visitor, with unique visitors now at 1.2 million.
Folks at Vogue.com noted that much of their page view credit is coming from fashion shows and party slide shows, a factor not pertinent to AOC’s page views or Alexa.com’s ranking of our websites. (We do not use slide shows, finding that they waste viewers’ time.)
Alexa.com puts Vogue’s page views per user at about 2.5, not counting looking at slideshow images that are part of the same article. Amazon’s company Alexa.com doesn’t measure slide show page views — which are sort of misleading, as acknowledged by Conde Nast.
People constantly tell us that they come to AOC and SN as a true portal or home base for learning, but even we refuse to believe that our incredible page views some days. We know that we have people who come and spend 3-4 hours on the website each week. We’ve counted as many as 250 page views with those types. Our time on website stats and also page views have held constant as our traffic has tripled in the last year.
The Alexa.com graphs have AOC and SN generating higher total page views than Vogue.com, when we’re counting pages.
Admitting that AOC and SN combined are about 20% the uniques of Vogue.com currently and without an ounce of marketing support, we’re proud to share some stats that compare the three of us. We are the little engine that could, the one ready to soar even higher in cyberspace with funding and person power.
In these graphs Vogue.com is the blue line; Anne of Carversville.com is the brown one; and Sensuality News.com is yellow. Is this one heck of a performance up against Vogue.com or what!!! Anne
