Photobucket logoDENVER - Photobucket, the largest dedicated photo and video site hosting more than 14 billion images from 100 million registered members, announced it attracted 20.85 million unique visitors in September, a 28 percent increase since the site was relaunched last Spring.

The company said its total U.S. audience reach surpassed Yahoo's Flickr in September, attracting 26.4 million users in the U.S. across desktop and mobile versus Flickr's 26.2 million, according to U.S. comScore data.

The numbers also showed Photobucket closing the gap with Pinterest and Tumblr, sites generally considered larger than Photobucket.

"We are growing Web traffic at a time when other audiences, like Flickr, Pinterest and Instagram, are experiencing flat or declining Web traffic," said Tom Munro, Photobucket CEO.

"We have also seen significant growth on mobile with more than a 40 percent increase in uniques this year alone, according to comScore. With the release of our new mobile apps over the next few weeks, we expect that mobile growth will accelerate even faster."
