Record Traffic At Citizen Free Press… Thank You!
For The Second Straight Week – Record Traffic 361,728 Unique Visits, 1.84 Million Pageviews
Ok, he’s a shocker, we now have substantially more pageviews per day than Gateway Pundit. They average 150,000 per day during the week, and CFP is now getting approximately 240,000 daily pageviews. Our daily number is actually higher than 240k, more on that below.
As you see in their chart below, Gateway Pundit’s daily pageviews fell off a cliff on January 1, due to a change in Facebook algorithm. This is exactly why CFP has no presence on Facebook or Twitter. They can never de-platform this site. The vast majority of visitors to Gateway Pundit every day still come from a referral, either Twitter or Facebook — yes they still get thousands of visitors every day from FB.
So most GP visitors are not regulars, just fly-by users who come for one article and then leave. Each visitor to GP stays an average of 90 seconds and then leaves, clicking on 1.7 pages each.
In contrast, each visitor to CFP stays an average of 16 minutes and clicks on 6.2 pages while here.
These numbers are ASTRONOMICALLY high for a news website.
Drudge is the only other conservative site that has similar engagement numbers.
I am addicted to traffic stats.
I study the numbers for all the large conservative sites every week, on Quantcast and Similar Web.
Most of you (93%) come on your own directly to CFP or (via a search engine) every day.
I get virtually no referrals from anywhere, except for occasional Disqus comments with a link to CFP.
Here’s a look at CFP daily pageviews for the last 90 days as traffic has grown substantially…
And the actual daily pageview numbers are substantially higher than what is shown here – Server level stats for CFP (which show every pageload) show our daily pageviews at 350,000 per day on average last week.
This happens very frequently with CFP, because the home page is pretty weighty, usually about 4MB with all the photos I use, and so because of this, Quantcast and Google Analytics aren’t counting approximately 35% of our daily pageviews..
Ok, here are Gateway’s numbers…

You’re the only advertisers I have…
Posting a link to CFP in comments on other websites is the BEST way to spread the word.
