Street Fight reports that the number of unique visitors to Patch sites more than tripled from December 2010 to 2011.
“Our first towns that we launched ranked high on our methodology, and we knew that we were going to see some good growth from there. … The big question was: if we launch hundreds of these, will they all follow the same or better trajectory? And the great thing is: yes they do. So while it would be possible to launch in some great towns, and some not so great, we’re seeing generally consistent growth across all of the different Patch sites.”
