ActiveRain Sets A New Network and Community Record

While I was away this week at Inman Real Estate Connect, Jon informed me that our members broke and set a new Community Record.  We have seen so many great thresholds crossed this year.  The first was having our One millionth Blog post by Brandon Farmer.  Then we reached the 2 million plus monthly visitors mark to ActiveRain.  Next was the most homes searched on AR at over 100,000 in a single month.  This week we hit an outstanding Blog post record.  On Monday, there were 1755 Blogs posts submitted and posted on ActiveRain.  This is the largest number of posts recorded on AR in a single day.  He said that we also had another 1700+ day later in the week. 

This is an incredible achievement from our members and community.

It's truly been a privilege watching and witnessing our community grow like this.  I'd be remiss if I didn't take a moment to say thanks and congratulate all of you who posted on Monday and also to those who post here on a consistent and regularly basis.  It's the members like you that make this site the most informative and most valuable Real Estate and information Network and resource in the world.  Records were made to be broken.  I am in awe at how many have broken so far this year.  Congrats to everyone for an outstanding week. I hope you'll continue to grow and benefit from all your efforts here in the "Rain!"

Now go have an awesome weekend, you certainly deserve it!  :-)

It is really incredible that some one has 1million points. And it has been really fun to watch this grow and increase in value

Charlie - just for the record, no one has hit the million points mark just yet, but it's coming.  The paragraph in this post reflected on the 1 millionth Blog Post by Brandon Farmer.  However, we do have a member approaching the 1,000,000 points mark.  It is Todd Clark and his current score as of this comment is 758,669 Points.

He is likely to be the first member to hit One Million points on ActiveRain.  He is closely followed by one of our other very well known and popular members, Lenn Harley with 743,656 points.  It will be interesting to see who hits it first. I'm not making any bets on this one. lol~ :-)

I am actually surprised the number is that low? I would have assumed the record would be much higher in one day here on AR. I think its awesome to see the numbers continue to increase. Although surpised the number was not higher, I still congratulate all of the AR members and staff on another peak for AR.

I didn't help break the record but want to congratulate everyone at Active Rain for phenomenal success.

It does appear that this blogging thing isn't just a flash-in-the-pan, huh?  (Not for me, either!)

Brad I sat next to you at REBar Camp but didn't notice it was you 'til you were getting up to photograph some stuff. Sorry I didn't get a chance to visit with you!!

That is excellent news!   You know I just wish we could somehow reach out to those invisible members that come in create a profile (half way) and then don't actually stick around for the actual fun and benefits that come from being an actual active member. I have some in my own office that I have preached to time and time again.  Maybe when Jason's book comes out it will shake them out from under the umbrella's they are standing under instead of coming and playing in the RAIN!

We should start a contest to determine where it will be at the end of the year.  I love to see the growth and I bet you love it even more!  Congrats!

Wow!  Congratulations to Active Rain and congratulations to those of us who are addicted to blogging here.  The more we blog, the more we will dominate google and the more people will turn to Active Rain for their real estate related answers.

Bob's challenge has me (and apparently others) geared up for more frequent posts.  As a side note to the local business challenge, watching posts show up on such a variety of non-realty search terms could offer new potential.

That is cool that Activerain has done in one day what has taken me two and a half years of nerve racking, finger bleeding to do. I GIVE UP! (LOL)

I would have thought the number would be a couple times that...  We need to set some more records...

That's an amazing number of blogs for a single day.  The downside is that our blogs go "over the horizon" of most recent blogs even more quickly!

I just averaged out the numbers for May, June, and July.  We averaged 1232 posts per day, but that number is definitely increasing as our membership grows and as members realize that writing hyper local content often gets them great results. 

I imagine that by September, we will be averaging a couple thousand posts per day. 

Some great stuff is gonna be happening here over the next few weeks, keep your ears and eyes open and better fasten those seatbelts!  :-O

@Roland - I'll have to dig up that poll, I think it was a membership goal, but that one passed long ago...

I just read this on someone elses post and they broke down the numbers and when you think about it like that, it really doesn't seem all that impressive.

But, those who get it will continue to post and those who don't will continue doing what they are doing.
