May 11th was a huge day for ATS. Many of you saw the new records being broken at the bottom of the home page: Most total users online all at once: 937 on May, 11 @ 13:42 GMT Most registered users ever on ATS in one day: 904 on May, 12 @ 00:32 GMT Most unregistered guests ever on ATS in one day: 22090 on May, 12 @ 06:02 GMT We broke 900 members visiting in one day, and at one point, had nearly 1,000 simultaneous users on the discussion board. Our server statistics are also amazing for yesterday: We had 30,298 unique users visit the ATS domain. The users yesterday viewed 11,164 unique pages on ATS For a total of 375,977 page views. 828 different URL's referred to ATS, for a total of 18,333 visitors from these referrals. And 909 unique search terms brought 16,484 users from search engines. All of this added up to 11.7 gigabytes of traffic on one day. We surpassed our previous single-day record by 33%! www.abovetopsecret.com... There was a time when we would have been very happy to see this kind of activity in one month, and yesterday, through no overwhelming single-site linking to us, we reached these massive numbers because of the quality of members, and their contributions to denying ignorance. We've seen some petty bickering over issues of management style here in the past few days. And while there is always opportunity to improve any effort such as the ATS discussion board, these numbers indicate we are doing most things very right. No site receives 828 unique URL's linking to it when quality is a concern. No digital community experiences over 30,000 unique visitors in one day, each looking at an average of 12.4 pages without superior efforts of moderation and forum maintenance. And the only way to get 900 members to visit an online community in one day is to offer quality discussion, properly managed and maintained. Since our motto of "deny ignorance" first appeared under our logo at the top of the site, the mission has been to help more people understand the issues we discuss here. Thanks to all our members, and hard working staff, nothing proves the success of your efforts more than these amazing numbers. Well done. Very well done indeed.

And wow, after posting this, I just realized this all happened on the One-Year Anniversary of ATS going from a small shared webspace hosting service, to our first dedicated server. How appropriate! :

This is... in one word... AWESOME.

kick-butt job, ATS staff and administrators!


I am curious though... how is it that you guys got this site to be so popular over time, if I may ask?

It's actually a very simple formula. 1) Create an environment that encourages interesting discussion + 2) Make sure it is managed so that the discussion is easy to find + 3) Put it all on a server that can handle high traffic + 4) Let the members do the rest _____________________________________________ = www.abovetopsecret.com...

Everyone of you all, even those pesky lurking guests, who eventually join and spread the anti-ignorance.

No advertising or spreading of the word of ATS's existence? I mean, I figured that there would have to be some kind of promoting in some shape or form...

Nope. Purely the concept of: "If you build it, they will come." and... Google is our friend.

Well, there have been over 11,000 different pages viewed on ATS yesterday, it's a pretty broad variety. The new threads on the Iraq abuse crisis and yesterday's beheading event are stand-outs though. Thanks to our new URL format, we are quickly indexed by both the standard Google search engine as well as the Google News crawler.

Yes, it would be most cool to know what google terms drove the most traffic to ats. Do you know what it is?
Is it interesting.

I am glad ats is doing well. As a lurker who finally registered..(THIS WEEK lol) I am glad to have been part of the happiness everone is spreading....HOWEVER I hope that the quality of the site does not begin to get watered down due to
new members.
(Of course I am not a
new member!!! :lol
