Brickset has its busiest month ever!

Posted by ,

1 million visits in a monthYesterday was something of a landmark in Brickset's history: it was the first time ever that 1 million visits in a 30 day period were recorded by Quantcast.

According to the stats, in the thirty days up to and including the 4th December, 373,000 people made 1 million visits and viewed 5 million pages. That's 33,333 visits a day, 1388 visits an hour and 23 visits a minute, and just under 2 page views per second.

I'm sure the numbers will go higher in the run-up to Christmas, and if the gradients of the graphs are anything to to go by they could go significantly higher. Let's hope so!

Go figure, yesterday was the first time in 2 years I didn't get to check the site! *lol* I'm usually on here 5-10 times a day browsing the News and Forums... oh well, can't stop myself from getting sick if I still refuse to swallow Vitamin D pills.

Congrats! I know I've been here just about everyday since I discovered the site. It is my go-to site for everything Lego! Keep up the good work! ;)

Congratulations!

Now this is the point most would completely sell out the advertising. DON'T YOU DARE... (I'm joking... sort of.)

apparently all this traffic has crashed the forum however...

Congrats to the Brickset team! There is a reason for these numbers: Brickset is currently one of the most complete, comprehensive sources for LEGO news and set details. You know, I had no idea that this site existed until I decided I wanted to find instructions for a LEGO Jedi Starfighter...

Again, congrats! Of course, I would be willing to bet that a lot of those views are from my little brother, who loves to look at NinjaGo sets... :P

While all this is great for Brickset, I have one concern: Can the servers cope with all this traffic? :P

Wow congrats! It's pretty cool to be part of the BEST Lego site in existence. I know about the deal Brickset has with Lego.com, but I was wondering whether the rush of traffic also gave more money?
