Doug Ross’ website published a list of the top conservative websites in the world based upon Alexa ranking.
Zero Hedge was ranked #9.
Denninger was ranked #58
Mish was ranked #59
I consider TBP to be a libertarian website that is aligned closely with ZH, Denninger and Mish. So how come TBP didn’t make the list?
TBP’s global ranking is 87,966, which would put us at #94 on the list. We’ve gone up 30,907 places in the last three months. I guess doom is becoming more popular. Or maybe people can actually log-on now.
Our ranking in the U.S. is 21,612. Not too bad for a two bit blog run by an old guy, in his spare time, writing articles in his undershorts, while sitting in bed.
I don’t know if you noticed but the average load time has been between 1 and 2 seconds for the last month. I was ready to pull the plug a month ago due to all the technical problems and hacking into the site that was occurring. Stop the Hacker offered to fix the site for $149. It was the best investment I ever made. Whatever they did has worked. The site has been running like a dream from the moment they patched it. I applaud them.
With the new server company, the statistics are gathered differently than before, but our daily visitor counts are still around 15,000. One upgrade is that I can now see the views by post. We’ve been on the new server for two and a half months and I can run a report to see the most viewed posts of all-time. The results might explain why TBP is not classified as one of the top conservative websites. I have written hundreds of well researched factual articles over the last four years. I’ve put my blood, sweat and tears into the site. And after all that, the most viewed TBP post of all-time is my March 31, 2011 masterpiece:
I’ve figured out that with all the AWD pictures and penis references, we must be classified as a porn site. The huge interest in penis nicknames is further proof that our country has jumped the shark, or in this case jumped the penis. When will TBP ever get a little respect?
