The more traffic a site gets, the more data we have to calculate estimated metrics.Estimates are more reliable the closer a site is to being ranked #1.Backpage has been protected by an outdated internet law, Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which protects websites from being sued for content posted by a third party.
We are proud of our company and the excellent reputation we have earned.
For these sites, we show estimated metrics based on traffic patterns across the web as a whole.
We identify these patterns by looking at the activity of millions of web users throughout the world, and using data normalization to correct for any biases.
