Something unusual happened in the month of April that garnered Charles an odd boost in traffic. Instead of the regular moguls followed by a downhill cannonball, the increase was relatively even and noticeably steady, suggesting that Charles is messing with his view stats again.
April was the month that the Chinese Lung AIDS pandemic peaked, but that wouldn’t explain the steady increase, and neither would all the inane Seth Meyers videos he co-opts.
Maybe we should have put a tracker on it, but it’s moot at this point.
He plateaued for a balmy 18 days before Alexa woke up and said, “WTF? You tryin’ to be a ‘splody food pimple* or what?” and knocked him off the statistical futon. Again.

It’s fun to plunge into the ALEXA statistical statistics occasionally to see how Charles Johnson’s Little Green Footballs is recovering from the plummet that began around 2008.
With the exception of a few unusual spikes in traffic, the decline has been steady, and the past 90 days is no exception.
In July 2008, Little Green Footballs clocked in at about 15,500 on Alexa website rankings.
Occasionally The BRC checks the Little Green Footballs ALEXA Statistics, and there appears to be an anomaly in the fabric of the futon vortex. Something happened on 20 September 2019 that gave Charles Johnson’s Little Green Footballs a significant bump in traffic.
According to ALEXA, in less than two months (52 days) LGF traffic increased by an astounding 143%. Did Charles Johnson post breaking news? No. Did he increase the number of headline posts on his front page? Yes. Does clicking on the LGF front page automatically tally all posts on the front page as having been read? Yes.
Compare today’s graph with this one from 25 September 2014:
In other words, Charles Johnson’s Little Green Footballs was ranked by Alexa at -73K in September 2014, and as of December 2019 it’s at -307K.
That’s some impressive work, Charles.
Okay, so we noticed that Little Green Footballs’ popularity DOUBLED in a mere 90 days according to Alexa Blog Stats. Yeah, that’s not unusual, considering that LGF has been in a death spiral for a decade or so. No, not unusual at all.
Perhaps somebody’s been messing with the hit counter again, eh, Charles?
To be fair, maybe the statistical goose is due to Johnson’s coverage of the “INQUISITION” that began Tuesday,13 November and continued on Friday,15 November 2019, and that everyone in the world wanted to get Charles Johnson’s insightful opinion. Yeah, sure they did.
We also noticed that the LGF posts no longer have dates, i.e., the day and month of the posting. Instead, the posts are listed as “1 day ago,” “2 days ago,” “456 days ago,”etc.
Why would Charles Johnson do that? Pheew.
Last time we checked (19 May 2019) Little Green Footballs was in adjustment mode after an inexplicable spike followed by a sharp decline in traffic. The Alexa graph seems to suggest that Charles’ drop in popularity has subsided somewhat, and now he’s gliding (instead of plummeting) downhill. Little Green Footblobs is at the lowest ranking since July 2018, and for comparison, LGF was within the 80,000 range in July 2014:
BTW, longtime LGF Lizard-Lapper Alouette aka @ViciousBabushka is on Day 16 in #TwitterGulag. If anyone has a screen cap of her offending Tweet, please forward it. Inquiring minds want to know.
UPDATE! WITHIN JUST HOURS OF THIS POSTING, ALEXA UPDATED THE LGF RANKING! HERE ARE THE CURRENT STATS:
“It’s possible for me to go many months at a time without remembering that Charles Johnson still exists.” – R.S. McCainPosted: May 19, 2019
Also, when was the last time a woman — any woman, amateur or professional — had sex with Charles Johnson? He has never reproduced, and he’s now 66 years old, so it looks like he’s a Darwinian dead end. Reproductive failure is common among liberals, because #science or something. -R.S. McCain
Yeah, Charles Johnson is still the festering pimple on the butt of the internet, but the size of the pustule has diminished significantly. Verify it for yourselves.
Meanwhile, here’s a visual summary of all of Charles Johnson’s tweets since 04 November 2015:
Not sure what gave LGF that killer comeback in early July, but it certainly wasn’t due to his Keith Jarret SpamTweets. Maybe it was a salmon-thawing recipe.
All Charles Johnson needs to do to drive traffic to Little Green Footballs is to post an unenhanced current selfie. Yeah, it’d be a temporary bump, but think of all the revenue he’d get from the Culver City Plus-Size Singles Club adverts.
Last time we checked Alexa Stats, things were not looking good for Little Green Footballs but something happened in mid-March, and it appeared that Charles Johnson was on the road to a comeback. Unfortunately, that comeback was short-lived, and by late April he was back on track. LGF bumped and slumped again.
Still not sure why Alexa skews the x-axis, but check this out.

After all our help? This blog has provided more traffic to Little Green Footballs than Rosie O’Donnell has done to promote feminism, or something like that. You get the idea. We link to LGF, Rosie doesn’t, and Charles Johnson has a Mossberg.
