The Big Move!

Compete has moved!  Outgrowing our old office space at the Prudential Center, we have moved to a fantastic new space on Boylston Street.  The new location is amazing, and should really give cramped Competers some space to breathe after living in such tight quarters!  While I’m in the New York office, I’ll still be sweating along in spirit by checking in with #competemoves on Twitter!

America Loves TV

Even with increasing options online, on tablets, and elsewhere, the average person still watched 34 hours of broadcast network and basic cable TV per week in 2010, up by about 1 percent from 2009.  You could watch both seasons of Glee in their entirety in that amount of time!

July data is now live on Compete.com! What sort of changes did a new month bring? We took a look at the sites that grew the most from June to July to get a better idea of where online traffic is flowing. Whether it’s the heat of summer, gas prices trapping people at home or something else entirely, several rich media sites saw a huge jump in traffic in July.
