Digg exposes its monthly website traffic — turns out Reddit might be bigger

Filed under: ,

In a truly epic Reddit thread, kicked off by an infographic from its lead programmer Chris Slowe, it has emerged that Reddit actually serves more page views than Digg. Reddit, with over 300 million page views in August, would seem to dwarf Digg’s ‘200+ million‘.

Page views aren’t everything, though. Reddit’s ‘forum’ style (and lighter format) is conducive to fast, frantic communication — not to mention, Reddit users are actually having a conversation. I’m sure Reddit users hammer F5 more than their Digg brethren, too. Still, all talk of Reddit being the stumpy runt of social news aggregation should probably cease.

In terms of unique visitors, I’m fairly sure Reddit is still some way behind Digg, but at the same time there’s evidence to suggest that independent analysis of Digg’s traffic isn’t accurate. One thing’s for sure, though: if the titanic feces-flinging storm that surrounds Digg V4 continues, Digg won’t stay on top for long.
