Aug 7, 2019: Now that Martial Arts SE is no longer a beta website its Area51 statistics are not updated anymore which means this post won't be updated either.


We cannot see any history of this site's traffic statistics (only moderators can do that but they are not allowed to share the data) so in this post we can keep track of the public statistics listed on the Area51 page of this site*. I'll copy and add those statistics every other week to the table below so we can see how things are progressing. If I forget to add them, please feel free to update it yourself.

There is also a Quantcast estimate of our site's traffic, with the mean number of visitors per month, a sparkline of weekly visitors for the last 6 months, and the highest and lowest weekly visitor count in those 6 months. The Quantcast widget is here:

The figure for questions per day is a rolling 2-week mean. The figure for visits per day is a rolling 2-week median.

I've recently added a 'Days in beta' column so we can see how we are doing compared to other beta sites that started earlier or later (e.g. Sustainable Living SE and Personal Productivity SE)

*I stole the idea of keeping track of statistics from user EnergyNumbers who started such a meta post on the Sustainability SE website. EnergyNumbers got the idea from user F'x over on Academia.SE,.

  • Super! Thank you for doing this. – Sardathrion - against SE abuse Apr 15 '13 at 13:28

    Truthfully, while I like this SE, the figures seem to indicate that we're really not making much of a foothold here. – Macaco Branco Oct 9 '14 at 12:37

    @SeanDuggan But does that really matter? Isn't it more important that you like to use and visit this site? As long as the number of visitors are not in steep decline I think it's ok. – THelper Oct 9 '14 at 14:20
  • @THelper: I honestly don't know. I know that there are Stack Exchanges which have been eliminated (I believe they still have content, just no interactivity) from the site due to low traffic. It's the same principle as closing off wings of a mall where there are no open shops. It cuts down on maintenance and reduces the chances of squatters and roaming gangs. – Macaco Branco Oct 9 '14 at 14:25

    @SeanDuggan I think shutting down sites only happens during private beta, or if a site is hardly active anymore. I know poker was asked if they were ok with shutting down, but then a group of people protested and the site is still active. – THelper Oct 9 '14 at 14:44
  • Ah... I see now that, since we're no longer in Beta, we're not getting the same level of stats. – Macaco Branco Nov 27 '19 at 18:37

    @SeanDuggan indeed. We could still keep track of the visits registered by Quantcast, but none of the other stats are available anymore. In any case I decided to stop updating this post. – THelper Nov 27 '19 at 18:42
