Last month, all categories were up from October.  I attribute our continuing slowness to my health issues and the shock of disbelief that has descended on our poor nation.

Here is our latest summary:

Year over year, 2016 is considerably lower in every category.  Here is our latest demographic data from Quantcast:

QUS11-2016

They miss a ton of raw data, but among those they can identify they are a valuable source of information.  We are still mostly older, well educated, Democrats, and politically active, anmd poor to middle class.  We are  about 40% male and 60% female. 

Here is our ClustrMap for 2016 YTD.

ClustrMap11-2016

ClustrMap misses a lot of visits, because many visits can’t be easily traced to a location.  They have changed their format.  When you click the map in the left column, it shows the current month only, but they changed their interface to allow me to pull up the YTD map, and they just made several different  formats available, including one in Russian for Republicans.

Here are our top five articles:

Jane Smiley: Capitalist Pigs 1/17/2010 769
Unquestioning Support for Cops 7/28/2015 510
Friday Fun – Joe Biden Pranks: Time for Some Chuckles 11/16/2016 388
Michael Moore’s Five Point Plan 11/11/2016 256
Chomsky on Trump’s Election 11/26/2016

The count represents only the people who followed an external link to that specific article.  Three were from November.  Congrats to Nameless, who not only made the list, but also, had November’s top article.

Here are our top non-blog/news referrers (100 referral minimum):

Care2 2,694
Google 2,280
Stumbleupon 256
Google (Images) 100

Care2 is up by over 400,  Google is up by over 350, Stumbleupon is up 60, Google (Images) made the list.

We had 14 sites  with 2 or more referrals, up 10 from October.  Putting blogs’ links here increases the ratings of their sites, so this “linkey love” is our thank you for their support.  I’m most pleased with the stat and that some of the sites that linked to us are household names. 

We have 237,724 links on other websites, down over 100,000 from October.  I expect that to decrease, because thousands of our links are over five years old, dating back to a time, when we consistently averaged over a million hits a month.  I used to have the time and energy for 7-8 articles per day. Major sites (like Care2), where I used to post links are no longer available, I’ve stopped posting links at other major sites, and I no longer visit 20 – 30 blogs per day, because I just can’t do everything I used to do.  However, as quantity has gone down, I hope quality has gone up.

As of Midnight on December 1, we have 7,011 articles and 84,621 comments.

Congrats to Pat A.  She won a Big Mouth Award in November, for the 84,000th comment.

Go to Gravatar.  Sign up using the email address you use to post comments here and upload the image you want to use as your avatar.  Whenever you comment under that email address here or on any WordPress blog (several others too), that image will become your avatar.

Your Administrators are Lynn Squance, aka Sasquatch or Squatch, SoINeedAName, aka Nameless, and I, aka TomCat, the Founder.  Your Editors are Joanne Dixon, aka JD the Erynator and Lona Goudswaard, aka Lona the Napster.  I  promoted them from Author in August to give them the ability to add graphics to comments and the ability to correct my innumerable typos.

This is our policy on links.  We do not embed links to extreme Republican websites, like Faux Noise, Breitfart or World Nut Daily.  However I leave notes in square brackets when I delete such links, (example: [faux noise delinked]) so readers, who wish to follow them can click through to the source article.  I also remove topical links.  Finally, I blank the target on all links, so they open in a new tab or window. 

Given our expanded talent, I expect to continue our overall upward trend, although my medical problems are still interfering with my writing.  One way you can help is to share our articles, not only with your family and friends, but also, on other sites, linking back to the article here.  The more exposure we get, the better we shall do at fulfilling our stated purpose, “Overcoming Right Wing Insanity One Day at a Time!”

Thank you for all that you do, here and elsewhere.  You are why we succeed!  You atr America’s only hope.

Remember, last month I warned you that every state is a swing state.  You passed it on, but far too few heeded our warning.  As more votes have come in, we now know that, if Jill Stein voters in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania had only voted responsibly, Hilary Clinton would be President elect today.  Let’s work to prevent this from happening in 2020, if our nation survives.

Last month, all categories were very similar to September.  I attribute our continuing slowness to my vision problems, my medication problems, Lynn’s absence doe to health, as she is our second most prolific writer, and the fact that even we cannot keep up to the extent of Republican horrors.

They miss a ton of raw data, but among those they can identify they are a valuable source of information.  We are still mostly older, well educated, Democrats, and politically active, ns poor to middle class.  We are  about 45% male and 55% female.

Here are our top non-blog/news referrers (100 referral minimum):

We had only 4 sites  with 2 or more referrals, down four from September.  Putting blogs’ links here increases the ratings of their sites, so this “linkey love” is our thank you for their support.

While optimizing the site for better performance, I discovered that our Top Commentators plugin was such a resource hog that it was increasing the time it took to load our pages by 33%, so I discontinued it two months ago.

We have 351,945 links on other websites, down 5000 September.  I expect that to decrease, because thousands of our links are over five years old, dating back to a time, when we consistently averaged over a million hits a month.  I used to have the time and energy for 7-8 articles per day.

Last month, all categories were up from July, except for Visits.  The massive increase in Bandwidth occurred, because I optimized thousands of previously uploaded photos, so that aberration won’t repeat.

ClustrMap misses a lot of visits, because many visits can’t be easily traced to a location.  They have changed their format.  When you click the map in the left column, it shows the current month only, no longer the year to date.  You can sure tell the difference in Lona!

Year over year, 2016 stats are marginally lower than those from 2015.

Here is our latest demographic data from Quantcast:

QUS07-2016

They miss a ton of raw data, but among those they can identify they are a valuable source of information.  We are still mostly older, well educated, poor, Democrats, and politically active.  We are still about 43% male and 57% female.  I wonder if they are basing that on Squatch’s feet.

Here is our archived ClustrMap for July only.

ClustrMap07-2016

ClustrMap misses a lot of visits, because many visits can’t be easily traced to a location.  They have changed their format.  When you click the map in the left column, it shows the current month only, no longer the year to date..

Open Thread – 7/6/2016 7/6/2016 211

The count represents only the people who followed an external link to that specific article.  With the exception of Jane Smiley: Capitalist Pigs, all of the top articles are new to the list, with four from 2016, and two from July.  Congratulations to Lynn, the Sasquatch, for cracking the top five!

Once upon a time I included fifteen here with two or more referrals.  This month, there are 14, up from 8 in June, but this time, I included 6 with only one referral.  This is the one stat that still disappoints me most, because it means that we are no longer a go-to site for bloggers.  However, we seem to have become a go-to site for activists!.  Putting blogs’ links here increases the ratings of their sites, so this “linkey love” is our thank you for their support.

Here are our top commentators for July. Those who leave their URLs in their comment headers, also get “linkey-love” here, unless I forget to copy the data before it resets.  We had a tie for fifteenth place.

Joanne Dixon (162)
Lynn Squance (130)
Edie (112)
Lona Goudswaard (105)
jla (84)
Pat B (80)

Jerry Critter (12)
Arielle (8)
Avril Lomas (5)
Carrie Burton (4)
d bishop (3)
Phil Hanson (3)

People who submit articles to Care2 can use their submitted news link from there.. 

We have 172,106 links on other websites, down considerably from June.  This reflects that fact that thousands of these links are over five years old, dating back to a time, when we consistently averaged over a million hits a month.  I used to have the time and energy for 7-8 articles per day. Major sites (like Care2), where I used to post links are no longer available, and I’ve stopped at other major sites, and I no longer visit 20 – 30 blogs per day, because I just can’t do everything I used to do.  However, as quantity has gone down, quality has gone up.

As of Midnight on August 1, we have 6,722 articles and 81,059 comments.

Kudos to Joanne and Lona for posting the 80,000th and 81,000th comments.

June's Report has very much been a shared effort . . . TC provided the information and graphics while I, Sasquatch, entered it into the format and wrote much of the commentary.  Unfortunately, the second graphs of Unique Visitors etc which TC sent me were positively gorgeous, but did not transfer well . . . no colour, no gridlines.  I suspect this may be because I work directly in WordPress while TC does not.  I'll have to try to figure it out for the next time.

Year over year, 2016 significantly exceeds 2015 both in viewed and not viewed traffic.  Month over month, June is down in Unique Visitors, Number of Visits and Bandwidth, although not a lot.  Pages and Hits are marginally higher.

Here is our latest demographic data from Quantcast:

QUS06-2016

They miss a ton of raw data, but among those they can identify they are a valuable source of information.  We are still mostly older, well educated, poor, Democrats, and politically active.  We are also about 43% male and 57% female.  So who says that women don't have opinions about serious subjects!

Here is our archived ClustrMap for June only.

ClustrMap062016

ClustrMap misses a lot of visits, because many visits can’t be easily traced to a location.  They have changed their format..  When you click the map in the left column, it shows the current month only, no longer the year to date..

Here are our top five articles:

Jane Smiley: Capitalist Pigs 1/17/2010 3,239

SURVEY: DNC Platform Drafting Committee 6/7/2016  374  (This one is JD)

Last Week’s Most Insane Republican Moments 6/12/2016 255

North Carolina Personal Nullification 10/23/2014 251

Beware the Fartfuhrer of Fitzwalkerstan 7/13/2015 235

 

The count represents only the people who followed an external link to that specific article.  There is an increase of almost 1,000 hits on Jane Smiley: Capitalist Pigs, and in May, it was up 500.  I wonder if this article has become required reading for a school?  With the exception of Jane Smiley: Capitalist Pigs, all of the top articles are new to the list, with only two from 2016.  Congratulations to JD, the Erynator,for cracking the top five!

Here are our top non-blog/news referrers (100 referral minimum):

Care2 2,348

Google 1,371

Stumbleupon 128

 

Google is down by  just under 750, and Google (images) has dropped below 100 so does not show.  Stumbleupon is down while Care2 is down 27.

Once upon a time I included fifteen here with two or more referrals.  This month, there are 8, a doubling of May's figures and up one from April.  This is the one stat that still disappoints me most, because it means that we are no longer a go-to site for bloggers.  However, we seem to have become a go-to site for activists!.  Putting blogs’ links here increases the ratings of their sites, so this “linkey love” is our thank you for their support.

Here are our top commentators for June. Those who leave their URLs in their comment headers, also get “linkey-love” here, unless I forget to copy the data before it resets.  We had a three way tie for fifteenth place.

People who submit articles to Care2 can use their submitted news link from there.. 

We have 306,635 links on other websites, down considerably from May, and even April.  This is certainly disappointing because it means that we aren't being seen in as wide a venue.

As of Midnight on June 1, we have 6,638 articles and 79,905 comments.

Kudos to Mitch D for posting the 79,000th comment.

I recommend using your own avatar. Go to Gravatar.  Sign up using the email address you use to post comments here and upload the image you want to use as your avatar.  Whenever you comment under that email address here or on any WordPress blog (several others too), that image will become your avatar.

Your Administrators are Lynn Squance, aka Sasquatch or Squatch, SoINeedAName, aka Nameless, and I, aka TomCat, the Founder.  Your Authors are Joanne Dixon, aka JD and Lona Goudswaard, the Nap Bandit.

This is our policy on links.  We do not embed links to extreme Republican websites, like Faux Noise, Breitfart or World Nut Daily.  However I leave notes in square brackets when I delete such links, (example: [faux noise delinked]) so readers, who wish to follow them can click through to the source article.  I also remove topical links.  Finally, I blank the target on all links, so they open in a new tab or window.  Please do so, or if you commonly leave links and don’t know how to blank the target, please say so.

Given our expanded talent, I expect to continue our upward trend, although my cancer surgeries may occasion a temporary drop.  One way you can help is to share our articles, not only with your family and friends, but also, on other sites, linking back to the article here.  The more exposure we get, the better we shall do at fulfilling our stated purpose, “Overcoming Right Wing Insanity One Day at a Time!”

Thank you for all that you do, here and elsewhere.  You are why we are here!  You are the reason we are a success!!

Now lets keep kicking Bagger butt!! Winking smile

Furthermore, we are up significantly from last May in every category.

Here is our latest demographic data from Quantcast:

QUS05-2016

Here are our top five articles:

Koch Brothers Finance Racism 4/18/2011 438
Friday Fun – Cat Sign Language: The Tales a Cat’s Tail Tells 5/27/2016 216

Stewart Nailed Rump Dump Again!! 5/12/2016 174

The count represents only the people who followed an external link to that specific article.  I’m quite pleased that three from April made the cut,  but surprised that one was just a Personal Update. Congratulations for Nameless for cracking the top five!

Here are our top non-blog/news referrers (100 referral minimum):

Care2 2,375
Google 2,106
Stumbleupon 137

All are slightly down from April, except Google.

Once upon a time I included fifteen here, but these four are the only ones with two or more referrals.  We also had seven in April.  This is the one stat that still disappoints me most, because it means that we are no longer a go-to site for bloggers.  However, we seem to have become a go-to site for activists!.  Putting blogs’ links here increases the ratings of their sites, so this “linkey love” is our thank you for their support.

Here are our top commentators for April, not May.  My bad.  By the time I remembered to capture them, it had already reset.  As the resident Big Mouth, I don’t count.  Those who leave their URLs in their comment headers, also get “linkey-love” here, unless I forget to copy the data before it resets.  We had a four way tie for fifteenth place.
