    I wonder how Drifting.com would stack up?

    it says average number of users, now if they were talking about number of lurkers drifting.com would be up there. Nobody really posts anything here though.

      Maybe I can commission a infographic of all the drifting media properties to see how they stack up to each other... hmmmm

        Drifting.com wouldn't even come close to those numbers. Half the time we go days on end without anyone posting anyone. The days we do have decent discussion were luckly if we get 10 post a day.

          Those user stats are bullsh!t anyways. That's all google bots driving up that traffic. Not for one second do I believe there are 750 THOUSAND active users on VWVortex. And I used to be fairly active on bf.c and it was more like 180 active users, not 180,000. bf.c only has 420,000 users total, is someone really gonna try to tell me that since that forum opened up 12 years ago that almost half of them still are active? Hell, even WERE active? Not a chance. People get different cars, get different lives, DIE, plenty of reasons - and just never come back. The traffic is coming from google's and other search engines "spiders" that crawl through the website and storing data for searches.

            Mike no doubt the numbers look a little inflated.. If you go to the original source quantcast you can see that there was a major spike back in Feb that lead to that high of a #.

            Also in terms of drifting centric traffic.. I would bet that total monthly traffic is near 20k-40k visitors a month for Drifting.com

              @Calvi Mike - Damn Mike! Putting the Bullshlit in its place! I had a feeling something was up with these numbers.

                I think the monthly avg visitors put's things in perspective a little bit better... so without that large spike in Feb.. they would be down another 20% .. which actually puts it's traffic slightly higher than a Drifting.com and Wrecked..
