Counter-Currents/North American New Right Newsletter: September 2012

Joseph Wright, “A Philosopher Lecturing with a Mechanical Planetary,” 1766

Dear Friends of Counter-Currents,

There is a lot of good news from Counter-Currents this month.

1. Our Readership and Web Traffic

In terms of web traffic, September was our best month ever. After being plateaued for seven straight months, and falling back in August, we broke new records. Our unique visitors went from 41,616 to 63,812, an increase of more than 53%. Our visits went from 96,314 to 124,978, an increase of more than 29%. Our pages viewed went from 305,729 to 429,378, a jump of 40%. It seems that sometimes you need to take a step back to make a leap forward.

Last month, our traffic was affected by Google changing its search engine algorithms, which pushed a number of our most popular articles far down in our rankings. But quality has won out, and some of those articles are again rising to the top.

Our August traffic was also affected by French internet provider free.fr, which was blocking our site. Our French readers report that this censorship has been lifted. In September, we also received reports from Norway that we were being blocked, but for mysterious reasons, that seems to have passed as well.

    When you list the cities, does it include the metro area or is it just the city within it’s own city boundaries?

    I hope one of your long term projects include a publication of Herve Ryssen’s works.
