Quizlet hit 500,000 visitors today; good luck with finals!
Every second week in December, Quizlet hits its record high. We've been amazed to watch our traffic over the last couple of weeks. Our traffic usually hits its weekly peak on Thursdays, as people study for their Friday tests. But recently, almost every single day has been a record -- even our Sunday was higher than our previous Thursday. And today, we destroyed last week's record (as you can see in the graph) with 500,000 unique people visiting the site in a single day. All this traffic is making us rank at #438 among all websites in the entire US, according to Quantcast.
Today we also hit 10,000 signups in a single day for the first time. We've been hovering in the 9,000s for awhile, but today was the first time we topped 10,000. I'm also sure Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday will break all of our records so far. It took us 252 days to get our first 50,000 registered users, and now we'll do that in just 5 days.
All this is happening for a reason -- all over the world, it's finals week! Maybe not everywhere, but in lots of places! I speak for everyone here on the Quizlet team when I wish everyone the best of luck and I hope that Quizlet can help you in some small way.
