Over the last year Reddit, once the also-ran to sites like Digg, has quadrupled its page views.
The company just set a new milestone, serving up more than one billion page views in January.
Reddit, which was purchased by Conde Nast in 2006, saw its traffic jump around 30% at the end of this summer, when angry Digg users started joining in protest.
The key to Reddit’s success has been their ability to keep power users happy without allowing them to distort how the site ranks stories.
So, without further ado, the one billionth submission. Thanks Ron.
