    I'm looking at webstats on similarweb. But I can't seem to find anywhere about what the K stands for.

    I am guessing this means 35,000 unique visitors per month?

    But what's the K mean.

    Sounds strange. Why would they use a weight mesurement. Would it be better to use T (thousand)

    35T

    Kilogram is often shortened to 'kilo' in simple communication, but kilo by itself is not a measurement of weight. In the metric system, kilo is a prefix that denotes a multiple of 1,000.

    Therefore, a kilogram is one thousand grams (weight); a kilometer is one thousand meters (distance); kilohertz is one thousand hertz (frequenc), and so on.

    In this instance, Shirty is correct - 35K simply means 35*1000, or 35,000.

    To be fair, they should be using "k" not "K"! K is Kelvin :p
