After less than a year, Quartz is challenging the Economist and Financial Times in web traffic

According to figures from comScore, web traffic at Quartz — the business site launched last year by Atlantic Media — has grown so rapidly that the site now has more unique visitors per month than The Economist and almost as many as the Financial Times, at 2 million. The Economist disputes those figures, saying its unique visitors are actually closer to 4 million a month, but Quartz’s growth is still impressive for a new publication.
