TBP GETS NO RESPECT

Doug Ross’ website published a list of the top conservative websites in the world based upon Alexa ranking.

http://directorblue.blogspot.com/2013/11/the-top-150-conservative-websites.html

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.

http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/theburningplatform.com

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:

http://www.theburningplatform.com/2011/03/31/best-penis-nicknames/

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?

    Whatever it takes to get more readers. Maybe do a penis article tied in with some doom and gloom. Maybe that will work. Sex sells ya know.

    There is some stiff competition out there in the world of interwebs.

    It’s funny as hell …. yet kinda sad …. that “penis nicknames” is #1 …. considering all the BRILLIANT stuff you write.

    Did “A Closer Look At Cunt” make the top 100?

    11th November 2013 at 2:48 pm

  11. Administrator says:

    Stuck

    It didn’t crack the top 100.

    11th November 2013 at 3:17 pm

  12. Stucky says:

    Lemme get this straight …. thousands of people read about penis nicknames …… while a story about pussy doesn’t even crack (hahaO the Top 100???

    It’s clear what’s going on here.

    Ya got yerself a lot of homo readers.

    About 40% of Americans are overweight … maybe more.

    Admin would have at least 40% more readers if you would stop making phun of phat phucks.

    We’d also get 40% more readers if we could post nipples, but SSS won’t allow it.

    Both of you need to reconsider ….

    Oh, I only posted ONE pecker picture. Woman readership increased 235% that week.

    You know, I throw all kinds of stuff against the wall, and I sometimes wonder why … if anyone actually reads it.

    Then, someone comes along and says they found a recipe to be “truly delicious” and it just makes my day! Thanks for taking the time to comment.

    Admin – if we can regenerate the odd blood-bath, that too draws in the crowds. Everyone enjoys a bloodbath if it is done with wit and humor.

    Well done. Do not let it go to your head.

    That’s funny ….. and it reminds me …. I actually left out a “secret ingredient” in the recipe, but it should still taste swell.

    —-Llpoh

    Wrong, moosebreath. I asked WHO it was, not the name of the painting.

    And I first visited the Uffizi Museum in Florence 35 years ago. The gallery where “The Birth of Venus” was prominently displayed also had several other Botticelli paintings, and Rafael’s “The Cardinal” was stuck way off to the left in a corner. There was NO security in that, or any other, gallery in the entire museum. The value of the art displayed in the Uffizi must easily reach into the billions, if not tens of billions, of dollars.

    And I must sniff at your characterization “Art is wasted on the shit throwing monkeys of TBP,” Llpoh. For quite some time, I fancied myself as a connoisseur of Renaissance art, German white wines, and French red wines. Nowadays, it’s golf, gold, and silver. Heh.

    Here’s the model purportedly used by Botticelli for Venus. She’s Simonetta de Vespucci, a favorite of the Medici family and court. Compare and contrast with Botticelli’s Venus.

    T4C nails it with her 8:11 pm post. Regular TBP visitors are truly among the intellectual elite. We are well read, well travelled, and know what the fuck is going in our nation and the world.

    And I’m not kidding with this comment.

    11th November 2013 at 8:28 pm

  33. llpoh says:

    SSS you thieving bastard. My response, which took all of half a secod from the time you posted, deserves an A plus. You are being pedantic. The who was implied, and I showed initiative.

    I prefer the Impressionists in any event.

    I sawt the palazzo vechio sculptures too. Nice. They fought dirty.

    Nice one. That should be the TBP statue of doom. The very image of a good shitfest on TBP.

    “You are being pedantic.”
    —-Llpoh @ SSS

    Definition of pedantic. “Characterized by a narrow, often ostentatious concern for book learning and formal rules.”

    Bullshit. This site is anything BUT pedantic, nor am I. How many college professors or K-12 teachers are visitors/commenters here? Zero, to my knowledge.

    I stand by my statement that most of the people who choose to comment here, with some few exceptions who shall remain unnamed, are among those who are truly among the intellectual elite. That would include our very own Olive Garden waitress Calamity, Llpoh.

    You may question her morality and ethics, but there is no question that she is sending a strong signal of the undercurrent of what’s going on in America. And she’s very smart, street smart.

    “Intellectual elite” is a term we can turn on the PhD bastards who think they’re a member of the club. We just need to throw the bullshit flag and show them how fucking stupid they are. Lots of people here can do it …… so, just do it.

    (P.S. Last Saturday nite, I did it in a conversation with a total idiot who thought Illinois was a “swing state” in national politics. Jesus Christ, the last time Illinois was a swing state was 1960, JFK vs Nixon. After I destroyed his argument, he was literally tripping over himself with apologies. I love the smell of burning liberal flesh in the morning.)

    11th November 2013 at 10:09 pm

  36. llpoh says:

    SSS – the pedantic was about refusing to acknowledge I got the right answer. And you were. read the definition again for proof. Nice attempt to blow smoke, though.

    Here is something I ran into that is truy funny. Worth a look, all you TBP monkeys.

    Admin, you are aware that you can “buy” a higher Alexa ranking, aren’t you? It’s pretty meaningless. Otherwise, you may have pissed someone off who has the power to “tweek” your stats. I’d suspect the host, first of all.

    Hey old farts, how are all of you? I have missed you guys.

    Congrats, Admin, on getting the word out there. TBP is the filet mignon of Libertarian/Austrian Economics/Doom blogs out there. I love every word that pours forth from your writing-from-bed-in-undershorts self.

    Anyway, I haven’t been hanging around as much because I have made a grand return to social media. I am actively reaching out to and connecting with people in the 18-40 age range and posting tons of Memes, graphs, links, comments, etc. I am sending many people your way, to check out TBP as I am meeting many in this age range who (like me) are huge fans of Strauss & Howe and their generational theory as well as huge Keynes haters. I stumbled here by accident when I googled something like “strauss and howe baby boomers eat shit”, and the rest, as they say, is history. I hope to send more younger people here to read, learn, and connect.

    Hope Llpoh, Stuck, Admin, AWD, SSS, and the rest of you will grill those little fuckers if they dare to make stupid comments. In the meantime, I had to go back, amongst the Sheeple, to try to wake up or share more information with anyone else who can be reached before TSHTF for real. <3 all you guys (and ladies) more than you probably all know. Everyone except bb, that is. ;)

    If you guys see Colma say what is up to him. I am sure I will stop by now and then, but in the meantime I am essentially evangelizing in the internet equivalent of "The People of Walmart".

    Happy 4th Turning.

    p.s. AWD – I still think you are swell.

    @ SAH….I gave Fakebook a go and posted more than a few articles and opinions from TBP in an attempt to not only educate,but lure some readers this way.
    Needless to say, I now have more friends and family rolling their eyes and avoiding personal contact.
    Sparkles and posters will only take you so far, eventually the dumbasses have to read something other than their status board to get a clear picture of the debris littered, rocky shore ahead.

    Needless to say, I’m no longer Fakebooking…

    SAH, your absence and enjoyable caustic wit is sorely missed here. Surely you can find time a few times per week … meanwhile, Billy is doing a great imitation.

    Follower from Seeking Alpha. I never go there anymore, once Tyler left and Jim (amongst others) was censored, it lost all it’s shine.

    Screw the ratings, I’m sure it is just like Consumer Reports, all “fair and balanced and independent” on the cover, but backroom deals and corruption beneath the surface.

    Or, they discriminate against shit throwing monkeys.

    One or the other.

    You’re # 1 in a lot of our books, sorry your followers opinions aren’t valued by the more “conservative” mainstream.

    jim,

    you get my respect.

    i went to drexel, lived off campus around 34th and vine. loved the hoagies, although to me, from jersey, they were subs. liked scrabble, and especially had an affinity for philly cheese steak sandwiches. i remember going to a corner grocery store (small) run by a black guy name bill. cooked them right there in front of you. big jar of pickeled pigs feet near the cash register. i eventually wound up playing pickup football with him and a bunch of the neighborhood guys. been on the schuykill expressway, OMG! especially when it was raining and flooded. swam in the fountains at the art museum that looks like the parthenon during one summer. had fun at night in center city. been there, and more.

    dont let anyone or anything get you down. when you speak la verdad, thats all you have to say. nuff said.

    hold your head high.

    you are a hero, a guiding light. be proud. tell your children, tell your wife. what that is within you, is the Light. everyone should be thankful that they may bask in it, courtesy of you and your life force.

    i salute you.

    While you pat yourself’s on the back, let me say, you have destroyed my beautiful boy’s happiness.
    He told me a while back of his new friends, he hasn’t ever had more than one at a time and not for very long. Now he won’t even come out of his room. He had asked me to help decorate it for a girl he hoped to start dating. It was darling to see him so happy, if you could have seen him, Bermuda shorts with white socks and hush puppies shoes, he is a bit on the chubby side but that only makes him my special beautiful boy – bb. BTW, I hate you SAH, you broke my son’s heart.
    Everybody knows now bb, see, come out of your room honey, this is your ma, I know your in there reading this.

    Thank you for providing an outlet for my fiscal conservative senses, and serving as one of the key places I get my news.

    I try to read every article, and every comment too if I have the time.
