Update: I want to note that the decline in traffic has continued to the present day.
One of the factors I sited when I asked for your donations to White House Dossier this week was the sudden drop in traffic to my website via Google search. Many of you have shown an interest in this.
As you are aware, Google and other social media have been accused of bias against conservative websites. I thought I’d share this graph with you from Google Analytics, which tracks website statistics. As you can see, over the summer, the hits to my website originating from Google searches dramatically declined. This is a problem for me, since as you can see from the chart, more than a quarter of my traffic from “all users” of the website resulted from searches on Google.
Notice that in early August 2018, very suddenly and over just a few days, and for no reason that I discern, my traffic from Google began to average about half of what it was.
I can’t say for sure that this is due to bias by Google against me. The way Google does business is complicated and opaque. But I would say it is suspicious.
Either way, it has harmed my earnings. If you are able to contribute to my limited-time fundraising drive, please donate here today. Your contribution to coverage of the White House by this conservative is very much appreciated.
