Fastest growing site on the web?

April 3rd, 2006 | by Klaus Holzapfel |

YouTubeWe all heard about the rapid growth of mySpace now surpassing Google as the busiest site on the web. I just came across an interesting article by Dion Hinchcliffe named the State of Web 2.0.

The article includes some Alexa traffic data on some busy community websites. What really sticks out is the rapid growth of youtube. Within the last 3 months the site moved from almost no traffic to a daily reach of 15 million users. (mySpace: almost 30 million, flickr: ~ 6 million).

I made some predictions about video podcasting last week and these numbers are right down that alley. I am sure the Hollywood lawyers are looking at these numbers as well and wonder what they can do to stop that trend…
