Reddit today announced that in 2014 it served an impressive 82.54 billion pageviews in over 88,700 active subreddits. The company also shared that it saw 73.15 million submissions, received 725.85 million comments, and enjoyed over 6.89 billion total votes during the year.
Using 2014’s figures, we can see that pageviews were up 15.85 percent year-over-year from 71.25 billion pageviews. Submissions and comments were also up from 54.9 million and 535 million, increases of 33.24 percent and 35.67 percent, respectively. This is impressive, especially given all the turmoil we saw at the site this year.
Reddit did not disclose the number of unique visitors it saw, a number it stopped sharing in 2014. We speculated last year that this could be because of slowed growth for that number, but regardless of the reason, the site is no longer interested in disclosing that information.
In 2014, the number of votes took a big hit. In 2015, the total number of votes rebounded to 6.89 billion (from 5.74 billion in 2014 and 6.7 billion in 2013).

Oh, and one more note from the announcement: Reddit is finally capitalizing its own name. This tidbit was hidden in the label: “/r/theydidthemath, the ‘R’ is capitalized now, what a time to be alive.”
reddit is dead. Long live Reddit.
