And yet the website still isn’t working properly. I guess the reason for the site’s horrific performance wasn’t traffic related as the White House has been claiming.

Via WaPo:

The number of visitors to the federal government’s HealthCare.gov Web site plummeted 88 percent between Oct. 1 and Oct. 13, according to a new analysis of America’s online use, while less than half of 1 percent of the site’s visitors successfully enrolled for health insurance the first week.

The new numbers on the Affordable Care Act — released by Kantar US Insights, and based on an assessment conducted by the nonpartisan research firm Millward Brown Digital — provide a snapshot of how the federal health-care exchange has fared since it launched at the start of the month.

Based on a sample of two million users — or 1 percent of all online users in the U.S. — which Millward Brown Digital has permission to track, it suggests that the rush of traffic administration officials cited as the cause of the site’s problems trailed off within a matter of days.
