Daily Bell, show us independent confirmation of your readership numbers, and then we’ll believe you

August 6, 2012

On January 1, 2012, I wrote the article, I call bollocks on the Daily Bell’s reported monthly page hits, in which I questioned the veracity of their claim that they ”regularly receive upwards of 20-25 million hits a month.”

I documented how, since then, they shot the messenger as their Alexa ranking tanked. They claim that they had 17 million page views just for the month of June 2012, showing that their earlier 20-25 million hits claim likely wasn’t a typo.

I pointed out how Mish Shedlock’s site had a higher Alexa ranking — and still does — and his independent confirmation of readership numbers shows he had 21 million page hits for the entire year in 2011.

As for my page hits, independent confirmation is available from WordPress on my homepage, and anyone can track the daily numbers by tracking the cumulative page hits from day-to-day.

I provided a critical analysis of a recent article by the Daily Bell on tally sticks on my August 5, 2012 episode of Exposing Faux Capitalism.
