Striving for more traffic was always at the core of the ethos. Growth and innovation were very important, but the growth slowed and ideas seemed to slow at the same rate. Careful is fine, but won't bring break-out growth.
Lots of good, very smart people have moved on to more exciting companies interested in growing to allow them to continue to learn and innovate.
Advice to Management
Take some new risks and use the data to innovate, not just tweak and tune endlessly.

Helpful (2)No OfferNegative ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied through other source. The process took a week – interviewed at Demand Media (Los Angeles, CA) in June 2015.
The independent recruiter that contacted me never got in touch with the hiring manager. Truly ineffective individual. I contacted the hiring manager on LinkedIn, and she was kind enough to respond. I had several phone interviews with her and she scheduled a series of afternoon interviews on site all the way up to the VP of software. Great right. Here's where it got strange. The hiring manager never showed up at the interview, and to this day I've not heard from her. No reason, no apology. Nothing. I'm afraid I've never seen anything like this. Truly unprofessional. This organization is in flux. Lots of departures and new people especially in HR. My HR person left several days after my interview and no one picked up her work. I'm confident that no one would have contacted me to followup if I hadn't inquired 4 days post interview. I was told someone would eventually get back to me. Needless to say, I didn't get the position, though I felt good after the interviews. Overall poorly handled process and planning.
