Probably gathered through infected computers usage monitoring, cookie snarfing and other less than reliable means, I still thought this was interesting: Flutterby reaches: 16k people Chattanoogan reaches: 63k people "The Chattanooga Times News Free Press" reaches: 85k people "The Chattanooga Times News Free Press" reaches: 85k people SFGate.com reaches: 3.7M people

Not sure what to derive from it, yet. But I find it interesting that Flutterby rates fairly well compared to a small town newspaper. Kudos Dan.

I personally think Flutterby is more fun to read than any of those...

This quantcast thing is complete bullshit.

Accroding to this site, haaretz.com - the most read Israeli news site - has a US reach of 240k.

My personal site has a US reach of 730k

Where are those three quarters of a million visitors? Why am I not already rich from Google Ads?

correctionscorp.com "Corrections Corporation Of America" i.e. private prison

This site reaches approximately 41,336 U.S. monthly uniques. The site caters to a primarily female audience.The typical visitor visits Center for Disease Control.

At first that seemed funny then - well all the wives looking up on their husbands in jail? But why CDC?

It is B.S., and not knowing how they REALLY gather their data it's completely unfounded B.S. But I thought it was interesting. A similar site once showed one of my domains as wildly successful, and I sold it for $50k based on those numbers to a domain name speculator. I know how I manipulated those stats then. The domain had a dedicated server and some tasteful erotica on it that gathered lots of traffic from people with computers that were infected with trackers.

The question is: can I successfully manipulate the domain speculation market again? How do they really collect their data? Am I evil for considering it?
