Dear Friends of Counter-Currents,
1. Our Readership and Web Traffic
As I wrote in our last newsletter, in February, we saw a dramatic decline in internet search engine traffic.
The primary impact was on a large number of articles, some of them years old, that would routinely be read 1,000+ times in a month, but usually not enough to appear in our top 20. In February, many of these articles had been read fewer than 50 times. In March, this continued to be the case. Indeed, all of our top 20 articles had been published in February or March.
Nevertheless, in March we had a 9.5% increase in traffic (even factoring into account that March is 3 days longer than February), although we published slightly fewer articles than in February. So there is reason to think that a rebound is already taking place.
