In September, Politics Plus was excessively slow in all categories.  It was so bad, I feel quite discouraged.  Here is our latest summary:

usage92014

Stats9-2014

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 Clustrmap:

Map9-2014

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 September 6, when it was last updated.  Therefore the map is unchanged from last month.

Here are our top five articles:

A Republican Freedom 9/24/2013 1,095
Jane Smiley: Capitalist Pigs 1/17/2010 717
How Republicans Support Our Troops 5/31/2011 337
A Republican Staffer Tells the Truth! 9/5/2011 308
Last Week’s Republican Lunacies 6/9/2014 251

Several years are represented here, but at least one article from last month should have made the list.

Here are our top non-blog/news referrers:

Google 2,209
Care2 2,186
Stumbleupon 286
Microsoft Bing 108

All are down.

Normally I include 15 here, but these are the only ones with two or more referrals.  Never before have there been so few.  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 usually only 15, but it was so slow that everyone with only two comments was tied for 13th place.

We have 380,185 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.

As of Midnight, October 1, we have 51281 articles and 56,750 comments.

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.

Perhaps where I went wrong is that I stopped promoting the blog on other sites so I could dedicate more time to Care2.  My hope was that Care2 activists would promote the site to make up the difference.  It worked for a while, but no more.  I will have to go back to doing it myself.

The 2014 elections are only five weeks.  If they take the Senate we will have two years of even worse gridlock, because they will continue to sabotage America, hoping to pre3sent themselves as saviors in 2016.  We have the votes to stop them, if they actually vote.

Please get out the vote!

Thank you for everything that you do.

The 2014 elections are only three months away.  Republicans are returning home to their districts to lie to their constituents about all the wonderful things they have been doing in Congress.  If one is holding a town hall near your home, please consider attending and calling them out on their lies.  Please get out the vote!

I’m considering a new series to highlight and publicize your political activities.  It’s not quite all the way gelled, but stay tuned.

You make this site successful.  Thank you for everything that you do.

The 2014 elections are only four months away.  Republicans want to transform our nation into a totalitarian plutocracy.  They want a permanent, one-party regime in which elections exist for show only.  No lie, no trick and no crime are to heinous for them to embrace.  If nothing else, Mondays two criminal SCROTUS decisions make that fact crystal clear.  We mist get out the vote in mass!!

Our improved performance again last month was because of you.  Thank you for everything you do, here and elsewhere.

In May, Politics Plus improved in every category except Sites and Pages, which was unusually high last month, so I’m pleased with the progress.  This is a highly abbreviated report.  Normally, collecting the data and formatting it takes several hours, and with this week’s schedule, it’s several hours I just don’t have.  Please accept my apology.  Next month’s should be back on track.

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?

In April, Politics Plus improved slight in every category except KBytes and Hits, and significantly in Pages.  It was also a shorter month.  I particularly liked the big increase in Pages.  It means more people stayed to look at more articles.  Here is our latest summary:

Our Technorati rating is 113, unchanged from last month, but still low on the B list.  These ratings yo-yo and do not depend on our traffic or our overall links, but only links on sites registered with and recognized by Technorati.  Because we have new links on two A-list sites, it should have increased.  It seems they have lost our page there and have not updated our activity in months.  I updated both my and the blog’s profiles in the hopes that it prompts them to remember we exist.  If only Care2 would register their front page of C2NN news with Technorati, we’d be A list again every month, unless Technorati remains muddled.

The change I made last month of individually commenting only when I have something significant to add seems to bed translating into more sleep, and more energy for more research into more content.

I had to make one change.  Where I used to live, my living conditions debilitated me so much that I rarely got out and had little to do inside from lack of facilities.  All I had to do was blog.  Now I am capable of doing more to take care of myself, but that also takes more time.  I used to reply to every single comment here, even if it was just an acknowledgement.  Now, I’m replying to every thread, but replying only to individual comments when I have something to add.  If you have noticed this and felt ignored, that is certainly not my intent, and I trust you now understand, now that you know why.

The 2014 elections are only six months away.  Republicans want to transform our nation into a totalitarian plutocracy.  They want a permanent, one-party regime in which elections exist for show only.  We must work together to stop them.

We see Republicans running further and further to the right, and rejoice, because the further right they go, the more voters they alienate.  We need to maximize gains while we can, because it will change as soon as primary season ends.  At that point they will shift to the center.  If elected they will continue the same extreme policies, and their war against the American poor and middle classes will continue, but they will move heaven and earth to fool voters.  For the most part, media will parrot their lies, so we need to stand ready to confront them with the truth and to educate and energize voters.  Thank you for everything you do to make Politics Plus part of that effort.
