Imgur is huge

30 sec read

Imgur started with a goal – to make image hosting for Reddit pictures easier. Now, they’re bigger than the link aggregator and they’re showing no signs of slowing down.

Community image-sharing website Imgur announced that it had reached a new traffic milestone today, with the site now pulling in over 100 million unique visitors per month.

For perspective, that puts Imgur into the top 30 most trafficked websites in the U.S. alongside IMDb, Apple.com, Yelp, Netflix, and AOL, according Alexa’s traffic rankings. Imgur also gets about 27 million more unique visitors per month than community news sharing site Reddit. This is particularly impressive because in many ways, Imgur owes its origins to Reddit –  which is where Imgur first rose to popularity and continues to be the preferred image hosting service of Reddit members today. Additionally, Imgur generates 2 billion daily image views, too.
