After reporting that Flixster closed a highly competitive venture round earlier today, I did some digging on available growth statistics for the service. According to recent Comscore data, Flixster has had a terrific period of unique visitor and page view growth over the last several months. Alexa and Compete also show a solid growth trend.
Comscore data graphs are below. They show Flixster growing from 4 million to 31 million monthly page views from March – December 2006. In that same period, unique visitors grew from 328,000 per month to just over 1 million. Comscore generally under reports younger, smaller sites, but the trend is clear.
Flixster is still a small social network, but the growth trends are way up and to the right. Venture capitalists, not surprisingly, like to see this in a potential investment.
