For the first time Alexa shows Digg’s reach being eclipsed by Reddit. According to the online ranking service, Reddit is now the 117th most popular site on the web, while Digg has fallen to 138th.
Reddit reaches 1,000,404,480 monthly pageviews, up 300% from a year ago and a 20% increase from the previous month. One of only 100 other websites that have that number of views. The page views are generated from only 13.75 million absolute unique visitors, who accounted for a total of 68.11 million visits. The average person checks out 14.7 pages per visit and stays on the site on average for 15 minutes and 40 seconds.
Much of the growth has been at the expense of Digg, which has had a mass exodus of users ever since it launched Digg version four.
