Nichelle Stephens sent me a post from MediaBistro highlighting the news that Gawker Media’s shutting down gambling site OddJack and laying off the editor.
Interesting, this unsuccessful site–whose numbers, said Denton, were “just never really there,” had 420,000 pageviews and about 180,000 visitors during its peak traffic month of September–probably not too far from the traffic some small regional newspaper sites receive (draw your own inferences from that dig, folks.)
Update: Lock says my stats were wrong, plain wrong–the real data is here and suggests that OddJack actually got fewer visitors than a Fire Department pancake breakfast.
