Curious about the metrics on a Product Hunt launch day?

Something that we have always been curious about when it comes to product launches on PH is - what kind of traffic they get on the day of the launch?

So we built this 🚀 public PH launch tracker to share our launch data with you. 🏗

It shows our data in near real-time, like # of unique visitors, where they are coming from, how many socials they are creating, etc. on thursday.social. I hope you find it interesting and perhaps useful to plan your launch :)

Let me know which metric you find most interesting/useful!

    Thanks for sharing! My experience is somewhat similar – I also got around 2K visitors for a remote-related product.

    It was different when I launched a product that resonated more with the community (a site that lists products with their MRR made by solo founders) – that resulted in 7K visits.

    Here's my blog post with more details: https://microfounder.com/blog/launch-traffic

      Yes, the makes sense. I've noticed it too. PH and IH are mostly maker ans start-up communities so tools and posts which are directly relevant to them are like to succeed more

    That's so refreshing to see some actual data from the launch, bodes well for your company!
    And again, congrats on the launch, incredible work!

      Thank you so much! I plan on regularly posting and talk about how we are building. Team #buildinpublic all the way :)
