Not that it’s a competition, but… Do512 has more traffic than the Chronicle and Austin360
It’s been 3 and a 1/2 years since we put the first version of Do512 up because Jimmy and I wanted a better place to find cheap drinks. We often talk about the days when we first regularly had 100 people a day using the site, and it’s in that spirit that we’re super excited about our latest traffic milestone.
Passing both AustinChronicle.com AND Austin360.com over the last couple days in both Page Views and US Visitors :
While we’ve never really thought of ourselves as competitors of these sites, and this is a temporary SXSW surge for us. It’s pretty damn cool and humbling to have equal footing with these MUCH larger companies, that have been around a LOT longer than us.
So, a huge THANK YOU to all our fans out there (especially those that were part of the early days) – and here’s to continuing to grow the Do512 community.
We are gonna keep busting our ass to bring you the best experience possible for figuring out What To Do in Austin (that’s been our tagline from the beginning btw, even though another site decided to adopt something strikingly similar last year) – and we trust that you’ll keep us on on our toes and let us know where we can do better.
Hope to see you all tomorrow at The Big One – we all have a lot to celebrate!
