UPDATE: Help Citizen Free Press Grow By 10%…

First Traffic Update – So far today we are up approximately 1,000 visitors vs. last Monday.

 

Awesome start, let’s keep it going all the way until Friday.

 

Thank you!

 

 

 

 

CITIZEN FREE PRESS FUND DRIVE – I DON’T WANT YOUR DONATIONS, I WANT MORE TRAFFIC

 

 

It’s been a hell of a year. When 2019 started CFP had 10,000 daily readers and 100,000 pageviews every day.

 

Now 10 months later traffic is 600% higher.

 

We average 60,000 daily readers, 120,000 visits and 600,000 pageviews.

 

This week was a new record of more than 4 million pageviews.

 

That puts us in the top 10 (in pageviews) for all conservative sites.

 

Thank you to everyone for spreading the word and helping the site grow so quickly.

 

The truth is we are still just 3% the size of Drudge Report.

 

The goal is to reach 10% of Drudge’s traffic by the 2020 election.

 

Even though Matt’s traffic is down 25%, he still gets 1.9 million uniques per day and 20 million pageviews.

 

So I wanted to run an experiment on word of mouth.

 

Let’s try to grow CFP traffic 10% in the next 7 days.

 

I want to see if it’s possible just by current readers, telling a few friends.

 

Anyway who has access to a pro-trump email list would also help. 😉

 

If 10% of you tell just one friend we will grow by 6,000 readers.

 

I will post updates letting you know how much traffic increases as the week progresses.

 

 


 

 

Here’s a traffic chart for Drudge Report over the past 6 months – daily visitors have fallen from 2.5 million to approximately 1.9 million.

 

 


 

 

UPDATE

 

Note To Journalists Who Read CFP

 

I have been told several big names secretly read the site.

 

Cough, cough, John Solomon, Sara Carter, Byron York, Paul Bedard.

 

70% of the links at CFP are outbound, in other words they go to your websites. If you write for Washington Examiner, the Hill, Fox News, Daily Wire, Breitbart, Daily Caller, Gateway Pundit, PJ Media, National Review, Townhall, Ann Coulter, Powerline — then you are aware of the tens of thousands of readers I send to your stories every week.

 

Be the first outlet to write a story about Citizen Free Press, what it’s like to try to emulate Matt Drudge, work 926 straight days and counting.

 

Help CFP get some publicity. There have been exactly ZERO articles written about the site to date.

 

Because the bigger CFP gets, the more traffic you receive when I link to you.

 

Leave a note for me anonymously in comments if you want to contact me.

 

 


 

 

 

Citizen Free Press has no Facebook, no Twitter, no advertising, no budget, no revenue.

 

You are CFP’s only advertisers.

 

Just one link in a Breitbart comment can bring up to 500 new readers.

 

Thank you!

Hardly go to Drudge anymore. It was my go to site.

I’ll try to spread the word. You are doing a great job focusing on the news and clips that display truth and defend American. values.

Don’t stop until you overtake a Drudge.

I almost had muscle memory typing in that website. Since the dark turn, I’ve actually put it into my hosts file to kill my access to it. Amazing how the wheel turns, but let CFP carry the torch!

First and probably last post, but I enjoy your site tremulously and check it multiple times a day. Count me in. It’s the least I can do and it’s a recommendation I feel very good about.

I really like CFP. Been checking it daily for months. It is refreshing to visiting a page that isn’t full of click bait that at the fat finger swipe takes me to places I don’t want to go. I can stop in and scroll through the to headlines, click on what I want to read, and not end up in “What does the cast of the Walton look like today”.
Anyway, yes if I am commenting on other sites, if appropriate, I will recommend CFP.

Interesting scenario:

On Monday Mr. Jones is called to testify before Adam Schiff’s committee. Since it’s completely held in secrecy and Republicans are threatened to not talk about what goes on the citizenry does not get to hear the testimony.

Now, on Tuesday the very same Mr. Jones is called to appear before Lindsey Graham’s Senate committee hearings who can ask him the very same questions, Under oath, on live television there by short circuiting all of shift efforts to keep everything secret. This could be repeated for each and everyone of the witnesses that shift calls, one by one they appear in front of the Senate committee Under oath on live television.

Pretty sure that that would stop the constant leaking by Adam shift and I would also serve notice to the witnesses to be careful of making up stories.

Of course one obvious thing that’s missing here is Lindsey Graham’s hearings, since he has not followed through on any of his promises. But wouldn’t this be a very very simple way to undo what shift and Pelosi are attempting?

Apologies for inserting this in the wrong thread.

Wolf

can you post links

Midnight

No links, just an idea I came up with

Upside Down World
Upside Down World

I hope you don’t mind, I copied and posted your incredibly brilliant idea to CTH just now. I gave you credit and CFP. I thought Linda Grahmnesty was finally doing something important, until I read your last paragraph. I don’t know why I felt devastated that this has not happened yet, I should’ve known better!

Midnight

Imagine the possibilities:

“ Mr. Jones, when did you first meet Adam Schiff or any members of his staff”?

“ Mr. Jones, were you at any time coached by Adam Schiff or any member of the staff“?

“ Mr. Jones, did Adam shift or any member of your staff direct you to not answer certain questions asked by Republicans“?

Well, you get the idea and can fill-in your own questions. But any witness that Adam shift called forward to testify would be of a different mindset if he knew he was going to testify again in the near future under oath and televised. Adam Schiff himself would not be prone to cherry pick Certain phrases out of context And leak them knowing full well that his plan will be exposed in the near future when the same person testified before the Senate in public.

As to why the Republicans have not done this as of yet, I’m not a lawyer and I’m not that well-versed on the rules for politicians in Washington DC., but it is possible that they just don’t want to, After all isn’t that one of trumps main complaints about his fellow Republicans? They don’t know how to fight.

Thank you, Kane. I come here all day every day for some truth. I still watch Drudge for the NeverTrump perspective but not nearly as often. Keep up the good work. I’ll share your site with others as much as I can.

Whenever someone complains on the other sites I frequent gets numerous recommendations. I tell anyone who will listen to come here for immediate concise news plus a lot more. I will continue to spread the word. You make Drudge look like when he started and leaps above what he has become. I wish you great success.

This is a great website, Kane! I still check in with Drudge to see what his big headline is, but seldom every click on any of his links because I don’t care for the crap he posts lately. As well, whenever I’m on other website’s comment sections, I frequently mention this site as a great source of info for those who value REAL news as opposed to the fake stuff….one of the things that keeps me coming back here, along with the opportunity to comment on these stories! Keep up the great work, cheers to your success and wish you all the best in your goals!

Being popular has it’s ups and down.

Once the word gets out, you end-up with a lot of liberal trolls who make life miserable for the rest of us.

It is very nice to come to a conservative site, relatively unmoderated, speak you mind and not be slammed for being white, male, conservative, or think Hillary should be in prison.

It is also nice to relativity say a few words (ie George Carlin’s 7-deadly words) without using asterisks, hashmarks, blanks etc…. (within reason of course).

I am sure CFP will eventually find a few moderators (and hopefully ones without a secret liberal agenda (turn your head an cough while I insert something up your ass you will not like)) but right now, CFP is very much a breath of fresh air.

That said, I tried on numerous occasions to link to CFP on so-called centrist site(s) and the moderators are quick to delete the link (or last time, I got banned) — turns out a lot of these centrists sites have moderators that are liberals working from home with their blankies and safe zones.

Honestly, this is my first stop every morning. Haven’t been to drudge in God knows how long. On mobile or laptop the sight works fine. I’ll start mentioning CFP on some of the other sights I’m on. Can’t remember how I found out about it, but someone had to promote it. I’ll do the same.

Drudgereport refreshes annoyingly every 60 secs or so, maybe implement something similiar to increase traffic, if that works.

I use four blockers at the same time; ADP, Privacy Badger, uBlock Origin and Popup Blocker Pro – between these fine pieces of software, I get zero ads on any channel. Before I ditched fakebook, I also had a fakebook blocker that also worked.

Drudge’s ad are toast, Google ads are toast – I can get on the internet superhighway and never see a single ad – It’s like the German Autobon with no speed limits
