In our last episode, Charles Johnson’s Little Green Footballs status was still plummeting into the abyss according the Alexa blog ranking service, and the decline declined even more between the time the decline was recorded and the post was posted. Pure awesome.
What the hell, let’s do it again!
And the trend continues.
On 09 February 2011, we screencapped this:
Now, 8-1/2 years later:
This inflation calculator says $45K in 2011 = $52K in 2019 dollars.
In other words, Charles Johnson’s once profitable website has lost about 63 percent in value since February 2011. Just think of what he could have earned had he cashed out before he went scooters.
Last time we checked (19 May 2019) Little Green Footballs was in adjustment mode after an inexplicable spike followed by a sharp decline in traffic. The Alexa graph seems to suggest that Charles’ drop in popularity has subsided somewhat, and now he’s gliding (instead of plummeting) downhill. Little Green Footblobs is at the lowest ranking since July 2018, and for comparison, LGF was within the 80,000 range in July 2014:
BTW, longtime LGF Lizard-Lapper Alouette aka @ViciousBabushka is on Day 16 in #TwitterGulag. If anyone has a screen cap of her offending Tweet, please forward it. Inquiring minds want to know.
UPDATE! WITHIN JUST HOURS OF THIS POSTING, ALEXA UPDATED THE LGF RANKING! HERE ARE THE CURRENT STATS:
After a decade of decline in blog traffic, the Big Boy got a big bump in July 2018 that continued into early November. What happened in July? The Kavenaugh Hearings. What happened in November? The Midterm Elections.
What’s happened since? The Continuation of The Decline of Little Green Footballs’ traffic at approximately the same rate as before.
You’re so awesome, Charles.

All he needs is a magical jazzy ponytail and it’s Our Boy Charles & LGF.

Not sure what gave LGF that killer comeback in early July, but it certainly wasn’t due to his Keith Jarret SpamTweets. Maybe it was a salmon-thawing recipe.
All Charles Johnson needs to do to drive traffic to Little Green Footballs is to post an unenhanced current selfie. Yeah, it’d be a temporary bump, but think of all the revenue he’d get from the Culver City Plus-Size Singles Club adverts.
Wow. We’re second behind wonkette? I’m surprised she hasn’t left the country and moved into a luxury closet in Bernie’s chalet in St. Petersburg. Meanwhile, Little Green Footballs has continued its slide in popularity, and of those 64K+ more popular blogs in the US, there are undoubtedly a significant number that post nothing more than cute cat videos and salad recipes.
Meanwhile, we need to address the graph. For some reason Alexa skews the vertical axis, but we’re happy to correct the anomaly.
Good job, Charles. We love ya, man.
