Maybe that number is different for you, but in all cases, we’re talking about going from no traffic to a certain level of sustainable traffic. The sustainable part is key – a large bump in TechCrunch traffic followed by no long term users does not count (trust me, we went through that once). So traction is the process of getting from customer 0 to customer 10,000 and maintaining a sustainable growth rate.
