Occasionally The BRC checks the Little Green Footballs ALEXA Statistics, and there appears to be an anomaly in the fabric of the futon vortex. Something happened on 20 September 2019 that gave Charles Johnson’s Little Green Footballs a significant bump in traffic.
According to ALEXA, in less than two months (52 days) LGF traffic increased by an astounding 143%. Did Charles Johnson post breaking news? No. Did he increase the number of headline posts on his front page? Yes. Does clicking on the LGF front page automatically tally all posts on the front page as having been read? Yes.
Compare today’s graph with this one from 25 September 2014:
In other words, Charles Johnson’s Little Green Footballs was ranked by Alexa at -73K in September 2014, and as of December 2019 it’s at -307K.
That’s some impressive work, Charles.
Read that title and caption again. Bet you can’t decipher it.
Update 25 November 2019:
“Contrary to popular belief, I’m still here. I did not threaten to resign. Let’s just say we are here to talk about external threats and Eddie Gallagher is not one of them.” – SECNAV Richard Spencer
Okay, so we noticed that Little Green Footballs’ popularity DOUBLED in a mere 90 days according to Alexa Blog Stats. Yeah, that’s not unusual, considering that LGF has been in a death spiral for a decade or so. No, not unusual at all.
Perhaps somebody’s been messing with the hit counter again, eh, Charles?
To be fair, maybe the statistical goose is due to Johnson’s coverage of the “INQUISITION” that began Tuesday,13 November and continued on Friday,15 November 2019, and that everyone in the world wanted to get Charles Johnson’s insightful opinion. Yeah, sure they did.
We also noticed that the LGF posts no longer have dates, i.e., the day and month of the posting. Instead, the posts are listed as “1 day ago,” “2 days ago,” “456 days ago,”etc.
Why would Charles Johnson do that? Pheew.
Leftists claim to be against tyranny, yet they fight those who fight against it.
Just took a dive into The Johnson Files. In over ten years, not once did Charles Johnson mention Veterans’ Day in the LGF comments section. Not even a pithy, sanctimonious, self-aggrandizing “Thank you for your service” comment. Not surprising
Nice work, Charles. Hope someone has your back when you need it most.

Have at it.
