Whose is Bigger?

Who knows why he even bothers sizing himself up next to Watts, but in case you were wondering, Romm wants you to know that his is bigger.

    Watts certainly wants to appear big, as he boasts of his online poll awards won and often sends his readers to “freep” nonscientific online polls.

    He also posts misleading numbers on his own web traffic, which routinely gets twisted further.

    And web traffic boasting is pretty much a monthly event over there.  So for a guy who often claims that the virtual scientific consensus on global warming is a mindless “religion” challenged by brave Galileos like him, he sure spends a lot of time propping up his cult.

    Watts is a stupid denialist doodie-head. My side good, your side bad.

    Because Watts claims web design changes at Romm’s site are caused by lack of readership. Romm is stupid for taking the bait, but it’s not a mysterious cause.
     
    I will once more voice my preference for seeing fewer or none of these type of posts, irrespective of the object of ridicule (Romm, Watts, Jeff Id).

    thingsbreak–
    So Romm links to Alexa which shows that Anthony gets more unique visitors and equal number of pageviews as Romm. But Romm– for some reason– thinks the same people visiting your blog over and over and over makes him somehow “bigger” than Anthony. Go figure.

    Lucky for you, alexa will probably not provide statistics that permit us to distinguish how much of thinkprogress.org’s traffic goes to Yglesias, Romm, Allyssa or their other topics. Soon, Romm won’t have individual statistics to show.  That should dissuade him from posting this sort of thing.
     
    As for why Center for American Progress consolidated their blogs: I assume they think it will help them attract more donors, get better ad revenues and relieve the individual bloggers of any burdens associated with maintaining blog software.
