I admit to being amazed when I take a peek at Alexa and compare our pageviews with other web sites that focus on open source software. To be sure we are nowhere near SourceForge, the grandaddy of all open source sites, but we are fast approaching or have surpassed the pageviews of FreshMeat, OSDir and Swik.
Why is this? We finally (sigh!) realized that finding more out about the people creating and using open source projects is a fascinating thing. Each time we ship a feature that reveals more about people who create and use open source software our traffic goes up.
Can’t argue with that feedback! But perhaps some of you have a different opinion. Let me know if you do.
