Memo to Gawker Media staff
From: Nick Denton
Subject: We overtook Huffpo (temporarily)
Date: Thursday, October 14, 2010, 11:14 AM
Well, the fuck thesis and the Favre scandal broke through. Even the ESPN commentators were forced to give Deadspin recognition during Monday night football.
The sites as a whole have brought in 9.1m people in the US in the last seven days. That’s higher even than during iPhone week earlier this year. To give you an idea, here’s how we currently rank against competitors also measured by Quantcast…
9.1m Gawker Media
8.7m Huffington Post
Huffpo will probably take back the lead once the current stories fade. But hopefully we’ll have a new lot by then!
