If You Cite Compete Or Alexa For Anything Besides Making Fun Of Them, You?re A Moron
Earlier today, I was checking out some new questions in the TechCrunch topic area on Quora. One in particular caught my eye: How was TechCrunch traffic affected by their major redesign in July 2011? This has been something I've seen asked here and there given the radical changes we implemented ? and, I assume, given the audience issues Gawker faced after their recent redesign. Mostly, people seem to want to know: is TechCrunch tanking? I was set to weigh in, when I noticed that someone else already had. This person (not affiliated with TechCrunch) painted a picture in which our site was essentially crashing and burning since the�redesign (the answer has since been removed by Quora, presumably due to down-voting). Their source? Compete.
