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.

Here is our latest summary:

Year over year, 2016 Uniques and visits are marginally lower than those from 2015.  Pages, Hits and Bandwidth are higher.

Here is our latest demographic data from Quantcast:

QUS08-2016

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  about 45% male and 55% female. 

Here is our archived ClustrMap for August only.

ClustrMap08-2016

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.  You can sure tell the difference in Lona!

Here are our top five articles:

Jane Smiley: Capitalist Pigs 1/17/2010 2,100
Why You Cannot Reason with Trump Supporters 8/19/2016 460
Unquestioning Support for Cops 7/18/2015 384
It’s Not Just the South 8/18/2016 383
Another Appropriate Trump Advisor 8/23/2016 377

The count represents only the people who followed an external link to that specific article.  Two were from earlier years.  The other three were from August.  I sincerely hope our other authors crack the top five next month.

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

Care2 3,297
Google 1,717
Stumbleupon 176
Google (Images) 139

Care2 up by almost 1000,  Google  is up over 250, Stumbleupon is up 40, and Google (Images) is up 36 from July.

We had 11 sites  with 2 or more referrals, up three from July.  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.

We have 258,156 links on other websites, up considerably from July.  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, quality has gone up.

As of Midnight on September 1, we have 6,793 articles and 81,968 comments.

Nobody won a Big Mouth Award in August, but one for the 82,000th comment will be awarded tomorrow.

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 the Erynator and Lona Goudswaard, aka Lona the Napster.

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 overall upward trend, although my cancer surgeries and resulting 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 are the reason America can survive!!

I’m back to doing these, but let’s start with a big hand for the Squatch for doing such a great job with June’s report.  Last month, hits and bandwidth were up from June, but the more important stats were down.

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.

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)

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):

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.

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.

However, we are up significantly from last April in every category.

Here is our latest demographic data from Quantcast:

Q!US04-2016

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. 

Here is our archived ClustrMap for April only.

Clustrmap04-2016

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..

Here are our top five articles:

Jane Smiley: Capitalist Pigs 1/17/2010 1,751
Republicans on Parade–8/18/2014 8/18/2014 232
BEEautiful Shot at Ammosexuals 4/12/2016 161
Koch Brothers Finance Racism 8/18/2011 154
Could This Kill the Reich? 4/20/2016 153

The count represents only the people who followed an external link to that specific article.  I’m quite pleased that two from April made the cut,  Unfortunately none are from authors other than me.

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

Care2 2,542
Google 2,016
Stumbleupon 222
Google (Images) 132

All are slightly down from March, except Stumbleupon.

Here are our top  blog/news referrers:

Once upon a time I included fifteen here, but these seven are the only ones with two or more referrals.  We also had seven in March.  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.  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.

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

We have 326,457 links on other websites, down slightly from March.

As of Midnight on May 1, we have 6,480 articles and 77,837 comments.

Kudos to Lona Goudswaard for posting the 77,000th 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.

In case you did not know, we are no longer a one-author blog.  Due to my reduced availability, from ongoing medical mayhem and learning to live as an amputee,  I appointed two Administrators, who are also authors.  They are Lynn Squance, aka Sasquatch or Squatch and SoINeedAName, aka Nameless.  I also appointed two more Authors.  They are Judi Angell, aka JL A, and Joanne Dixon, aka JD.  I’m also very proud that last month we added another Author to our staff.  She is Lona Goudswaard and a prime catch!  Please Join me in praising and thanking all five for a job well done.

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 an 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.

I’m not concerned with the downswing,. because it is so small,  Given our expanded talent, I expect to continue our upward trend.  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 go kick some Bagger butt!! Winking smile

In March Politics Plus was up from February category, except bandwidth.  Thanks and kudos to Lynn, our beloved Sasquatch, who completed all our recent Monthly Reports, except January which I did.  I hope to be able to stay on top of them for a long time.
