Dear Friends of Counter-Currents,
February of 2017 was our best month ever in terms of unique visitors — 176,470 — even though February is the shortest month of the year. I want to thank our writers, donors, and readers for making this possible — and to welcome an influx of new readers to the best site on the Alt Right.

Greg Johnson had six of the top 20 this month, in addition to two podcasts, one with John Morgan and the other with Paul Kersey, who is making his first appearance at Counter-Currents. Viktor Orbán’s first appearance at Counter-Currents also made the top 20. Spencer Quinn had three articles in the top 20, including his essay on Milo, which went viral after Milo himself recommended it on Facebook. It is humbling to see how much traffic he commands with a simple nod. So thank you, Milo, and thank you, Spencer. The other top 20 articles are by familiar names, one each by Jef Costello, Will Windsor, Julian Langness, Irmin Vinson, Christopher Pankhurst, Aedon Cassiel, Bain Dewitt, and John Morgan (who also did a podcast with Greg Johnson). Once again, we thank all our writers for making Counter-Currents possible.

6. Our Book Publishing
Upcoming releases include Fenek Solère’s novel Rising, Jef Costello’s The Importance of James Bond, Christopher Pankhurst’s Numinous Machines, Anthony M. Ludovici’s Confessions of an Anti-Feminist, the Dark Knight and The Alternative Right anthologies, a couple of volumes of interviews, and a new collection of Greg Johnson’s essays called In Defense of Prejudice.
7. Our Amazon Affiliate & Google Advertising Accounts
In March of 2015, under pressure from the SPLC, which was amplified in the pages of the Washington Post, Amazon.com dropped Counter-Currents from its Affiliate Marketing program, which earned us about $6,000/year — a substantial financial hit to a business as small as ours. The SPLC’s aim, of course, is to put us out of business.
In February of 2017, Google stopped advertising at Counter-Currents, again for politically correct reasons.
Fortunately, in both cases, our readers have rallied to our aid.
