    Default Do you think Alexa is manipulating the website traffic numbers they publish?

    Infowars believe that Alexa manipulate the traffic for their site and other sites that are not pro-Obama/pro-leftist

    Article from 2015.
    https://www.prisonplanet.com/alexa-c...ews-sites.html

    What do you think? I mean look at the list of the most popular sites for United States, and spot the news sites:
    https://www.alexa.com/topsites/countries/US

    CNN, NY Times and Washington Post at top 50.

    Now look at Infowars:
    https://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/infowars.com

    And Prisonplanet
    https://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/prisonplanet.com

    Infowars is currently ranked at place 1061 in United States and Prisonplanet is ranked 14,827.

    Paul Joseph Watson, who is an editor of both Infowars and Prisonplanet go on about how fake news like CNN and Washington Post are losing their popularity, yet they are far far far more popular than his sites.

    Is Alexa lying, just like many polls underestimate anti-establishment and right-wing parties and politicians?

    Who is winning the war of the audience?
    The Future was better before

    No. If anything, sites like that have higher Alexa rating relative to their popularity in the general population, because fans of that stuff use the Internet more. In real life, I rarely meet somebody who is into that stuff. In the off chance I do, it’s usually at a place like a farmer’s market... and we all know weird people love to hang out at farmer’s markets. On the Internet, however, they’re everywhere.
