In November, Politics Plus was significantly improved in all categories. Here is our latest summary:
In the monthly totals, a Site is any website from which someone accessed our server, a Hit is every access attempt to our server, and a File is every access attempt to our server that returned data. The difference between Hits and Files is from access attempts that were sent in error or damaged in transit and failed attempts by hackers, spammers, phishers, and Republicans to access the back end and take control of the site. Any questions?
Here is our latest ClusterMap:
ClusterMaps misses a lot of, because many visits can’t be easily traced to a location. It shows only the visits from March 2 to November 2, when it was last updated.
Here are our top five articles:

Several years are represented here. Finally one from last month made the list. There should be more.
Here are our top non-blog/news referrers:
All are up.
Here are our top blog/news referrers:
Normally I include fifteen here, but these ten are the only ones with two or more referrals. But that’s up two from last month. Putting their links here increases the ratings of their sites, so this “linkey love” is our thank you for their support.
Here are our top commentators. As the resident Big Mouth, I don’t count. Those who leave their URLs in their comment headers, also get “linkey-love” here.

There are over 15, because of a tie.
We have 260,345 links on other websites.
Our Technorati rating no longer exists, because Technorati no longer exists as a blog rating entity. They have left a vacuum in blog authority rating. If you learn of someone filling that need before I do, please let me know. I have registered with Quantcast. They miss a ton of raw data, but among those they can identify they will be a valuable source of information. I learned that hard way that I have to pull the data off before a new month starts. However I did learn that we are mostly older, well educated, poor, and politically active.
As of Midnight, December 1, we have 5,243 articles and 58,419 comments.

Well, the elections are past. We did not get out the vote. That is not your fault. Instead of running as Democrats, far too many of our candidates who had won in conservative areas, ran away from our party and lost. Republican candidates were bold with their lies. Our candidates whispered our truths, if they repeated them at all. Campaign 2016 is now. It’s time to stuff party offices with progressives and support progressives in primaries for every position from dog catcher up. God willing, I shall be here to find you all the tools I can.
Thank you for all that you do. Onward!
