In late June, an advertiser asked me for some stats on MeFi's readership and I had no clue. I haven't tracked web server stats in about two years, and back then it was serving about 2 million pages on a good month to about 200k unique IP addresses.
July marks the first full month of statistic gathering, and the numbers are astounding. Here are stats for http://www.metafilter.com only (metatalk and ask mefi aren't included in this):
# of unique IPs: 439,043
# of visits: 1,290,148
# of pages served: 6,361,029
bandwidth used: 230.4 Gb
Over six million pages were spit out by the servers. That's totally beyond my wildest guesses.
Ask MetaFilter gets quite a bit less traffic, here are the stats on Ask MeFi alone:
# of unique IPs: 159,952
# of visits: 498,454
# of pages served: 1,921,124
bandwidth used: 45.2 Gb
