Where’s the love for Gothamist LLC?

25 Oct

I’ve talked about how awesome local blogs are, but Gothamist continues to impress me.

Check out their Quantcast numbers. 80,000 unique visitors a day. 7,000,000 US pageviews a month (yes I went from day to month). Over $3 million in revenue a year. 30% of their traffic are regulars. With highly educated and rich visitors.

Even more stunning – 60% of their traffic is just two areas – New York and Los Angeles. Imagine if they could fully replicate their success in other major metros (I’m looking at you Chicago and Toronto).

All from the ground up. All with nothing but a focus on blogging about their locale.

Why do all the local analysts ignore this fantastic homegrown success?
