Major Drop in Lefty Readers at Blue Va, Waldo and Not Larry According to Alexa Statistics

As Virginia and the entire Country realize the scam the left has pulled on us and drift as far away from the Progressives as they can, the hatred, lies and garbage spewed by the left are abandoned like a dirty diaper.

And the recent revelation that Lowell Feld is spreading slave jokes on twitter to his white friends while calling Tea Party activists and anyone right of Karl Marx racist reveals Lowell’s true colors, echoed by most on the left.

And people notice. And the reaction is repulsion. And rejection.

Most blogs do not post their traffic numbers. But a company called Alexa uses an amazing traffic analysis algorithm to determine rank and traffic of all websites (including blogs) worldwide. In fact, the aggregator Blog News Net gathers statistics from Alexa.

So, if we look at Blue Virginia’s statistics at Alexa here is what we find:

Blue Virginia is ranked 908,435th in the World and 380,511th in the US.

In fairness, there are a LOT of websites in the US and the world. This ranking includes sites like Google, FaceBook, Microsoft, etc. So, being ranked in the top million in the world is actually a pretty fair achievement. (For a point of reference, the local version of a leftist Taliban jihad blog, The Richmonder is ranked #5,136,987 in the world. But to be fair, The Richmonder does beat out The Home Page of Potty Training, which comes in at #5,879,538. He can take some degree of comfort at beating out potty training sites, I guess.)

But the really telling factor of the demise of Blue Virginia is the one month and three month traffic statistics.

Blue Virginia is down 50% this month alone in readers, and 41% down over the last three months.

It becomes obvious that whatever Lowell is doing at Blue Virginia, people are not interested.

Now in contrast to the decline of liberal blogs, and their swift journey to obscurity, Conservative blogs are thriving.

Take this blog, Virginia Right! for example. In only our second year, our Alexa rankings reflect the trend towards Conservatism:

Virginia Right! is ranked #674,967 in the world and #77,874 in the US. Our monthly traffic stats show a monthly increase of +260% and a three month average increase the same: +260% increase.

And this trend is reflected all around. NotLarrySabato is ranked #651,135 in the world, slightly better than Virginia Right!, but in the US, Not Larry checks in at #109,225 which is well behind Virginia Right!. One would expect Ben has a lot of hits from Socialist countries and is probably linked to several Al Qaeda blogs. Good news for Ben, though. His recent insensitivity to the fallen coal miners upped his traffic 90% this month, but his three month trend is still down 40%. I suppose the increase could be attributed to the same factors that cause us to look at a traffic accident. We tend to be curious about repulsive things.

And checking in with Waldo, he is currently #1,787,799 in the world and #599,971 in the US. His traffic is down 10% for the last month and a steady 10% down for the 3 month average.

So, will the smug lies and fabrications on the left trend down to salvage what is left of their readership? I would say don’t hold your breath. These blogs will continue to spew the same fecal tomes while cobwebs line their network cards.

    I don’t really understand the methodology here. I really doubt this is raw numbers or visits to the blog. I really want to know what Alexa is measuring and why it’s relevant.

    For just raw numbers purposes, Alexa is indicating you are a more visited blog then Blue Virginia. Blue Virginia averages 1,192 visits a day according the site meter Lowell publicly puts on his blog. Do you have the numbers per day for VirginiaRight!, and if so are they higher than Blue Virginia’s? I’m just wondering how Alexa’s measuring stats match up against raw numbers.

    My visits vary, but the average this month is 1,784 per day from unique IP addresses. My “hits” per day average is 33,844.

    I saved off my statistics page for the month so far and uploaded it to

    It looks like the charts did not save in the HTML, they are likely graphics files, but this should give you an idea.

    I have no idea the exact method Alexa uses, but if Blue Va has 1,192 average hits per day, my 1,784 average hits seems to jive with Alexa’s findings.

    And I also publish everything to Facebook, and I would imagine those hits are not included in my ISP’s count or Alexa’s. But I would have to think that my average including Facebook is around 2,000 readers per day.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
