The effective altruism subreddit is growing in traffic: https://i.imgur.com/3BSLlgC.png (August figures are 2.5k and 9.5k)

The EA Wikipedia page is not changing much in pageviews: https://tools.wmflabs.org/pageviews/?project=en.wikipedia.org&platform=all-access&agent=user&start=2015-07&end=2017-08&pages=Effective_altruism

The subreddit stats used to be public (or rather, moderators could choose to make them public) but that option was removed by Reddit a few months ago.


I discussed Reddit stats a little bit in this article: https://www.wikihow.com/Understand-Your-Website-Traffic-Variation-with-Time

Thanks. Good idea to include the subreddit. How do you get those stats? We can add traffic from the r/smartgiving subreddit too (r/effectivealtruism precursor) to go back prior to 2016.

I have EA Wikipedia pageview data in my post already. :)

You can find the stats by going to the right of the page in moderation tools and clicking "traffic stats". They only go back a year though. Redditmetrics.com should show you subscriber counts from before that, but not activity.

Thanks, I added the Reddit stats to the article!
