Impressive, eh?

How much time do you spend on Reddit?  If you’re anything like the average Redditor, it’s quite a bit!  Yesterday Reddit reported, via Twitter, that in August the average time spent per visit was 17:29 minutes.  The month also closed with a shipping 3.4 billion page views and 42.9 million uniques.  Impressive, eh?

While the 17:29 minute figure is only a one second increase from 17:28 in July, the page views and uniques saw a significant jump.  In July Reddit reported 3.1 billion page views and 39.5 million users.

Of course, one of the biggest factors in the massive uptrend in Reddit’s stats over the past month is likely due to Obama’s AMA (Ask Me Anything) on August 29.  The half-hour session drew more traffic than Reddit had seen in its history, clocking in at  nearly 5.3 million page views in a matter of days.

Die hard Redditors joked in response to the time spent per visit statistic, responding to Reddit’s tweet with comments like “That must be a typo.  I think you mean 1:17:29,” and “my avg time is probably that x10.”  One user tweeted that “at only one session per user per month that’s more than 1600 years of our lives.  impressive and frightening.”  Anyone want to do the math to see if that checks out?

So, how much time do you think you spend on Reddit per visit?  Per month?  How many billions of page views do you think we can expect from Reddit by the end of the year?  We’d love to hear your predictions in the comments below!
