Dezeen grows 500% in a year



It's been a while since we talked about our visitor figures, but we're proud to say traffic has continued to grow rapidly with 668,039 unique visitors last month - our best month yet.


The first quarter of 2008 was also our best quarter yet, with 1,712,919 unique visitors - up over 50% on the previous quarter. Traffic has grown over 500% in the past year (first quarter 2008 compared to first quarter of 2007).


We're not sure we entirely trust Technorati's blog rankings, since our ranking swings all over the place, but at the time of writing Technorati makes us the 778th most popular blog in the world, up from 1,438 at the start of the year. According to Technorati, there are 7739 links to Dezeen from other a total of 2052 sites.

Stats are courtesy of Statcounter (so we run the risk of being described as "a cheat without any ethics" again). But have a look at our stats live on our Statcounter traffic snapshot and decide for yourself.

Thanks for visiting!

    these stats are wrong – – then compare your site to other well known design blogs and you’ll see they are larger even though they dont have the hits you say you have

    well, the blog is good. But i have to say it used to be better… and i’m not talking about years ago but a couple of months ago. Lately i see the architectural content being replaced by rubbish design pieces…
