Quantcast

You are likely familiar with Alexa, a division of Amazon that measures website traffic. I have written about the site a number of times before. A while back I discovered a site called Quantcast which is becoming a well respected third-party way to measure web traffic in an accurate manner. Currently Quantcast allows you to see how many unique visitors any site has. If a site has enough traffic you can find an incredible wealth of information about it from its visitor’s household income to education level. You can also find the top subdomains, sites with a similar audience and gender.
 
Here is the site’s FAQ which can answer your questions about how this is done.
 
If you so choose you may have your site Quantified which means your international traffic can be measured as well. How is this additional measuring done? You basically put code on all your pages which tracks visits.
 
I am proud to say that Quantcast says the US reach for TMCnet is 711,127 people – this roughly translates to just under 2 million visitors in total as TMCnet has about 60% of its visitors from outside the US. (711,127/0.4=1.77 million visitors)
 
What may surprise you however is just how TMCnet ranks in comparison to all the other sites covering communications. Here are the latest numbers from across the industry.
 
And yes, US Reach means how many people visit the site in a month.

Oh and once again – thanks for making TMCnet the best read site in communications. Based on these numbers TMCnet actually has more traffic than all other competitive sites combined! Thanks again for making this so.
