Citizen Free Press Approaches NEW Record of 100 Million Pageviews For December…

Posted by Kane on December 29, 2020 5:11 am

NEWS JUNKIES -- CHECK OUT OUR HOMEPAGE


 

To put these numbers in perspective, I launched Citizen Free Press on May 1, 2017.

 

It took 4 months to get 1,000 daily readers.

 

Now we have 350,000 hardcore members of CFP Nation who visit the site every single day, multiple times per day, all of you coming directly to the homepage. We get another 15,000 referrals per day on top of that.

 

And CFP gets zero traffic from google news.

 

Breitbart complains, but they still get millions of pageviews per month from google.

 

I repeat, CFP gets zero.

 

Most days 97% of readers come directly to the CFP homepage, on their own.

 

Average length of visit so far this month for CFP is 21 minutes.

 

For most sites it is less than 3 minutes.

 

This is absolutely unheard of for a news website. Most sites get 40% (max) directly to the homepage, and the other 60% coming to read one story they clicked from a Facebook or twitter link. Then they leave 30 seconds later.

 

 

CLICK TO SEE IN FULL SIZE — ONE DAY CHART 3.39 MILLION

 

This first chart is for one day recently, pretty average traffic in December.

 

3.39 million pageviews for the day.

And here is a weekly chart for 12-18 of December.

 

More than 24 million pageviews in 7 days.

 

These are the official traffic numbers from Cloudflare, that record every visit to the site.

 

CFP will have 95+ million pageviews in December, and 100+ million pageviews in January.

 

 

ONE WEEK CHART — 24 MILLION PAGEVIEWS

 


 

 

If you are wondering about traffic rankings for conservative sites…

 

This is for the last 30 days…

 

 

Breitbart    182 million pageviews

 

Gateway Pundit    124 million pageviews

 

Citizen Free Press    95 million pageviews

 

Daily Wire    46 million pageviews

 

Townhall    42 million pageviews

 

Daily Caller    27 million pageviews

 

Washington Examiner    24 million pageviews

 

PJ Media    18 million pageviews

 

Washington Times    12 million pageviews

 

The National Pulse     10 million pageviews

 

Just The News    10 million pageviews

Kane, you have every reason to be very proud of this great website. I read you for a long time before I finally signed on to comment. I don’t participate anywhere else on the Web except here. I rave about your site… it is the best! Folks may not see it this way, but you are a patriot warrior for the right-minded, conservative thinker and the valuable service you are providing all of us is to be applauded! In these odd times, I have come to rely on CFP for the latest news (and some good humor) to stay informed. I wish you the best of health, prosperity, happiness, and sanity for the future! Oh, and Merry Christmas to you and yours–and, of course, all my fellow readers!

I will add my name to Minni’s lovely ‘thank you’. CFP allows people to view many current events and stories quickly, conveniently and with some attitude.

Many Canadians are fans and we are keenly interested in the American scene. We are your peanut gallery in the Great White North. What happens to America affects us all. Canada is already gone so you are the remaining hope.

Great work, Kane. Thanks for your Herculean effort to build this great site. It’s my first stop every morning.

Me too……a dual citizen who was born and grew up in the usa but has lived in Ontario for 23 years now.
I am intensely interested in politics and read about as much as possible every day. I really fear for Canada and
how things are going. What happens in America DOES affect us all. Good comment, J.

Is that guy with the black hat and sunglasses the Departed pop singer Mr. Leon Redbone?

Never considered Leon Redbone a “Pop” singer. He was a Grammy Award winning R & B entertainer from Nahwlins! His version of “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” is still a classic in its own right too! ?

I second this wonderful comment from Minni! I’ve been coming here since early 2018 and have my home page set to CFP, so I’m always connected to this site. 🙂 Thank you Kane for sacrificing your personal life for the past 3 1/2 years. God bless you and Merry Christmas!

Amigo there are very few sites one can comment anymore yeah I know the conservative sites allow such but the majors are all gone for commenting and that’s because they saw (left) they were losing on the boards.

Liberals do not like to hear the truth nor criticisms so they do not want comments.

Thank you, Minni, and to you as well, a Merry Christmas. I’ll add this off-topic here as a FYI (please excuse); I can’t be the only person who Town Hall has alienated. This was first posted at Town Hall. If anyone else has had this problem, my Christmas condolences!

[Start]

HEY TOWN HALL! THIS IS THE DIRECT RESULT OF YOUR CONSTANTLY BOMBARDING READERS WITH POP-UP COME-ONS TO SUPPORT YOU, including myself, who ALREADY IS a member (and DEFINITELY doesn’t plan to renew the subscription) [DOUBLE the TH subscription price was sent to CFP a week ago or so)]:

Breitbart 182 million pageviews
Gateway Pundit 124 million pageviews
Citizen Free Press 95 million pageviews
Daily Wire 46 million pageviews
Townhall 42 million pageviews

I’ve repeatedly asked Townhall to STOP BOMBARDING PEOPLE WITH APPEALS.

ZERO RESPONSE. Repeated for emphasis: ZERO RESPONSE.

[End]

Ok in my car, turned on Fox Business N Cavuto the full blown anti Trumper had Ben Carson as guest. Ben Carson was magnificent in a calming way dissecting the brain of Cavuto It was on 12;30 to 1 pm this afternoon 4/21 –If there is a PODCAST , this is worth listening to . I was immediately going to switch to ‘Triumph on Sirius but heard Ben Carson speak, so I decided to listen. Listening to tone deaf Cavuto, trying every which to trip up Carson. If this were an old fight, cavuto was knocked DOWN in every round

Once I found you I never looked back.
Whenever I went to my favorite Chinese buffet, I would turn CFP on my phone and just enjoy myself….all by myself….
Because it was one of lifes little pleasures.
Now because of the Wuhan flu, that restaurant is shut down. The idiot govenor of Pennsylvania has seen to that. Having my morning tea right now.
Thanks for all you do, because you’re doing a good job.

Conservatives, we must delete our own Facebook and Twitter accounts. The only thing these corrupt companies understand is money. A drop in users equals a drop in share price. Do not help these companies destroy the USA.

Breitbart’s comments section is run by a lefty of some kind. I was banned about a year ago for continously pointing out that provocateurs or trolls had few upvotes if you check their Disqus profile. I have 34,000. I think they work for Breitbart to stir things up or something. I appealed to them several times but was ignored.

Look, you produce a good product and that’s why people visit your site. Keep producing a good product and more will visit your site. You have a certain niche you fill, keep filling that niche and you will continue to have loyal customers.

Learn the lesson from Drudge, don’t change and you will keep your current customers. If you do change expect a shift in who your audience is.

1) BREAKING: Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko said via Belarusian Telegraph Agency, BEITA, that the World Bank and IMF offered him a bribe of $940 million United States Dollars in the form of “Covid Relief Aid” on condition that he do the following:
2) Impose an “extreme lockdown on his people”
Force them to wear face masks.
Impose very strict curfews.
Impose a police state.
Crash the economy.

Every country in EU et al took the payment. Dirty US governors and Congressmen took the payment. 10s of thousands of us scientists
