Dateline 15 October 2017. From Alexa we get this nice graph:
Not sure why LGF gets traffic from Sweden. Perhaps some are keeping tabs on him after his documented influence on Anders Breivik and Norway’s Oslo Massacre.
Now let’s look at that Alexa traffic graph. It’s certainly bad news for Little Green Footballs, but assuming the graph is accurate, the reality is even worse. Note that the y-axis bars are not evenly spaced. Without the actual statistics, we can graphically re-space the y-axis, keep the x-axis untouched and get closer to the truth of the decline:
The buttcrack on the far right of the x-axis represents 1 October 2017. The blue line gets fuzzy vertically because it needed stretch pants, and in a week or so we’re going to see if Charles Johnson remembers something he forgot.
Recently we posted a graphic from web ranking site Alexa that shows Charles Johnson’s Little Green Footballs in steady and predictable decline. Today we realized that Alexa’s graph was a bit skewed for unknown reasons.
There is some oddness in that graph that we didn’t spot until today. The rows are not equal. They should be the the same between
<50k – 100k
<100k – 150k
<150k – 200k
<200k – 250k
but they’re not. Maybe it softens the blow to Johnson’s ego, but it’s not accurate. Here’s what we posted:
Here’s the same Alexa graph with the rows adjusted:
Don’t see it yet? How about a throbbing Alexa Graph?
What does this mean? It means that Charles Johnson’s Little Green Footballs is tanking faster than even Alexa is willing to admit.
Rock on, Charles. We love ya, man.
Charles Johnson’s Little Green Footballs got a spike in popularity a few months ago for unknown reasons, but it was short-lived. Might have been an echo from the POTUS inauguration, but that was then and this is this.
What happened after the spike in traffic in late January, and the crash of late May? Was it a self-promotion gimmick that kept it level for three months? I suppose it doesn’t matter, because Charles Johnson’s Little Green Footballs is still on the predictable trajectory despite the graphic plateau. LGF fell off the mesa and is heading for The Mojave.
Last time we checked, LGF had a global rank of 168,689 and a US rank of 50,248. Rock on, Charles. You’re awesome.
