WikiAnswers Sees Jump In Traffic
The Answers Corporation, creator of Answers.com, announced today that metrics for its WikiAnswers site have improved by 50 percent since the end of June 2007.
Questions on WikiAnswers have increased by 50 percent since June, from approximately 500,000 to more than 760,000. Registered users have increased to over 280,000 in the same time frame, up from 200,000.
According to comScore, unique monthly visitors in the U.S. increased by about 50 percent, from 2.2 million for June to 3.3 million for August. Daily pages views have also increased by 50 percent and Answers plans to make WikiAnswers an integrated part of Answers.com in the coming months.
"When comScore began tracking WikiAnswers in November 2006, we had about a million monthly unique users in the US," explained Bob Rosenschein, Chairman and CEO of Answers Corporation. "To have more than tripled it in only ten months demonstrates a real excitement about what we call ‘Q&A the wiki way’.
"This most recent increase of 50 percent, over the summer months when Internet usage generally drops, is further confirmation. The community – both casual visitors to the site and especially the dedicated supervisors who edit, organize and improve the answers – has really crystallized."
