Back on December 24th, I mentioned that MinnesotaDemocratsExposed.com had been dropped from Google after the site was compromised by hackers.
Google is a major source of traffic for most websites, so getting dropped from the search giant is generally not a good thing.
Web traffic analysis firm, Compete.com, suggests that MDE’s month over month unique visitors were down 17% with year over year stats down 83% for the month of December.
For comparison, here’s how MinnesotaDemocratsExposed.com is doing vs. my contribution to tracking Minnesota’s contribution to international cuisine, JucyLucyRestaurants.com.
Blue = MinnesotaDemocratsExposed.com, Green = JucyLucyRestaurants.com
It will be interesting to see what January’s stats look like a month from now, considering that MDE was only out of Google for a week or two of December. If they miss the entire month of January, perhaps cheesy goodness will overtake Luke Hellier’s underqualified attempts to steer political debates using cherry picked statements and outright lies.
