Dim Post has done a critical analysis of just how real Cameron Slater’s traffic stats are. TDB has only been around for a year with a fragment of the digital footprint of the older blogs, yet we have managed to become the largest left wing blog driven purely from our current blogs, and I have always suspected that Slater’s astronomical numbers are click bait induced puff from gun porn and kitten videos with few real readers.
Those suspicions have become larger now Kim Dotcom has done an analysis of Slater’s traffic…
…it looks like it’s all a farce with pumped up stats and bots running most of the actual traffic. It looks like many corporate are secretly paying Slater for nothing more than a bloated illusion.
Seeing as everything else Slater seems to do on his site is a tournament of lies and twisted manipulations, that he would game his own site to pump up traffic isn’t difficult to believe.
