"Never has a single punctuation mark brought us so much joy. There are only about 100 sites on the entire Internet that get a billion pageviews in a single month, and now reddit can put on its smoking jacket and join that exclusive club. The New York Times isn't on the membership list, nor is Expedia, Weather.com, about.com, or Fox News. In your face, meteorologists!," said Reddit.

Despite having just 13.75m unique visitors, the site was able to rack up the page views thanks to individual users' propensity to linger for a very healthy 15m and 40 sec, browsing an average of 14.7 pages.

The most impressive stat is the extraordinary growth from last year: 250m page views in January 2010, compared to to 829m page views in December.
