Steempeak traffic surges as Steemit falls off a cliff

in #steempeaklast year (edited)

You cannot argue with data and the data shows that steemians are voting with their feet and abandoning Steemit.con in favor of the others Dapps on the steem ecosystem most notably

I'm not going to rehash the whole sorry saga but rather let the data show who actually owns the community.

All the following data comes from


See that nice little bump at the end of the graph? Look closer below. Traffic up 6,000 since the takeover fiasco started.


Next let's consider Steemit. con falling stats.


Steemit's low traffic is now mainly coming from India and Korea.

Steemit was only ever supposed to be an experiment to see if a blockchain could handle a social media websites traffic amongst other things.
It's lack of leadership and direction has always been the biggest thing holding us back plus a crap user experience as far as the website development goes.

While a few people have been arguing about Steemit the bulk of the active steem community has already moved on.
Shout out to @Dtube which is also getting a lot more traffic in recent weeks.

My proposal is that we decouple cross posting links to Steemit.con from all other Dapps.

If a picture paints a 1,000 words then this data speaks volumes.
Steempeak is a far richer website in terms of user experience and it has an up to date design.
If you haven't tried it out yet? It's time you did.


Yuuuup. Good.

I wrote an article last week encouraging anyone who may read my post to use anything but steemit (and 7 other tips). I am glad that I was not the only one with those thoughts.

I do still use steemit, as STEEMWORLD leads to steemit links and that is how I manage my account. I however, post and read from the different tribes. Currently steemleo and neoxian are the ones I use the most.

Thanks for sharing the stats.

Yep we need the #Dapps to reroute cross posting away from steemit and towards #steempeak as that is the place where so many are heading or #steemleo, #palnet etc

It's a quick fix to just change the URL to a new destination website then we would truly see the real decline in Steemit's traffic and use.

STEEMWORLD leads to steemit links and that is how I manage my account.

It's much easier to use Steempeak as we can manage all of the #steemengine tokens etc as well.
Steemit just didn't iterate their platform. It is woefully inadequate for today's steem communities. 👍

I am using steempeak now :)

Thanks for the reminder. I like it too.

I only wish SteemWorld would change it's allegiance to Steempeak. You click on things in there and it opens Steemit as that's how the association is set.., but I don't wanna use Steemit anymore. How about it @steemchiller?

It's a simple thing to change to a different landing page. I suppose that they just haven't got around to it yet? @steemchiller @dtube and every other Dapp

Gina still uses Steemit links, hopefully they can switch over to steempeak

It would take just a couple of minutes to make the switch to a different landing page.
I do wonder why it hasn't been done already?

I am reducing my usage of the Steemit site. Speempeak and eSteem have done all I need for a while. I am not sure we can trust Justin to run it properly.

I have an auntie who keeps a perfectly clean and comfortable home. There are always toys available for my kids. You can drop by without calling first, and she always seems to have coffee and fresh cookies (or a bean taco available) to eat.

AND I WILL NOT VISIT HER. Just cause I don't like her.

So, Justin can suck it. I don't care if he makes steemit awesome, I am using it as little as possible.

Just like I still say hello to the auntie at parties :)

Would have loved to see the eSteem stats, too. It is always my frontend of choice. I shared your post on Twitter. 😘

Thanks Mel for the tweet, pop over to and have a look at esteem.

But I still love them best!
