– one of the world’s fastest growing sites

We’re excited to be included in comScore’s latest report highlighting the fastest growing web sites.  Specifically, they looked at the top 100 properties on the web and reported on the U.S. sites with the most growth in 2008.

A few things to note:

  • Our own internal web analytics solution shows that our growth in unique visitors was about 50% in 2008 (close to being in the same ballpark as comScore’s findings).
  • As highlighted earlier this week, the vast majority of visits to are “product driven”.  Usage of Firefox grew by nearly 60% in 2008, hence we’d expect the traffic at to rise by a similar percentage.
  • More than 70% of the traffic to our U.S. site comes from outside the U.S.  I’m not sure how this compares with the other popular U.S. sites, but the degree of Firefox’s adoption internationally has certainly aided our site growth (we do also have separate Mozilla web sites in Japan, China, and Europe).
