I've been wondering how site-traffic nowadays compares to that of years gone by - is it on the decline, like the business seems to be, or is it on the rise? I'm talking site hits, posts made, users active etc.
I'd say more posts made and user activity, because the site continuously gets new registrations. And those users tend to easily shadow over the users who stop being active.
The number of people online compared to years past is about the same in my opinion except for PPVs. Just look at the archive and you'll see past years (2006 mainly) where the same, or even more users were online. This site has more users on for PPV's compared to the past though.
