As could have been expected, many of these presenters’ websites experienced traffic surges around the time of the conference, only to see their traffic drop back off to pre-conference levels. Wixi, Flock, Docstoc, and WooMe seem to have escaped this fate completely. Mint, Powerset, TripIt, Ponoko, Clickable, Befunky, Metaplace, and Kaltura trailed off significantly but settled at a higher level of traffic than before. Mint, Wixi, Flock, and Docstoc experienced the highest levels of traffic with TC40 winner Mint even hitting the 200,000-visitors mark at one point.
Of course, all of these observations could be misguided given Alexa’s track record. But most of these startups are too small to be tracked by Comscore. Compete data has been added for comparison purposes.
