Welp, it’s that time of the year again, where I flex on all the haters and show you some juicy statistics.
2018 has been very kind to me. Here’s the short of it:
I honestly thought post-Trump 2017 was the biggest growth spurt, but in 2018 AlfaNL has gotten more traffic than all the previous years combined. Not bad.
Well, traffic has increased roughly 80% increase since May of this year:
My explanation: Jim adding me to his blogroll. Thank you Jim!
As for the location of dearest readers:
Apt to summarize that AlfaNL is read by people in ‘the West’. And Lalit.
Referrer make-up has not changed so much.
The top 3 most popular posts are interesting:
Let’s start with the Robert Mueller. Last year I was rejoiced to see that, when you perform a Google search for ‘is Robert Mueller Jewish’ that post came up as the 2nd hit. However, this year my position on the first page has disappeared. I am now at the bottom of the 3rd page:
What makes this peculiar is that none of the page 1 hits actually answer the question whether Robert Mueller is Jewish or not, while my post did answer that question. What makes it all the more peculiar is that, when you perform the same search on DuckDuckGo, guess whose post is the 2nd hit?
Seems obvious that Google has been tampering with search results for this humble blog. I wear it as a badge of honor.
Number 2 most popular post is a hit piece I wrote on Heartiste. Not much to be said there, except that it’s true. I still hope that Heartiste stops pretending that he is too cool for the dark enlightenment bois. At least he is not speaking out against Jim like some of his fanboys.
And of course, at number 1: a hit piece on infamous pick-up artist Owen Cook! I am particularly proud of this one, because for a whole year it has been and still is the number 2 hit on Google for ‘Owen Cook’, surpassed only by his instagram.
Clearly, Google does not care about Owen as much as they do about Robert.
Not much else to say about this one, except that it’s the final proof that purple pill prophets like Owen are all smoke and mirrors.
That’s all for blog statistics. It’s good to, how you say, put in perspective the amount of traffic blogs receive: 50.000 clicks all year is about 1% of what a daily Pewdiepie video gets. Blogging is the small unknown sibling of the social media family and it never will be as big as the others. But, what can I say, I’m enjoying life on this side of the pond.
