Creating a top 200 website

I've been thinking about what it takes to create a top 200 website.

http://www.quantcast.com/top-sites/US/2

These elements seem the most important:

- Large set of permanent of content (travel, wiki, imdb) - Endorphin hit content (news, images, Reddit) - Ego boosts for users (flickr, Pinterest, tumblr)

Am I missing anything?




You want a top 200 website?

That's reddit.com/r/aww


I've honestly never been on reddit. Didn't even know that segment existed.
