WUWT Year End Report

Thanks to everyone that continues to help make WUWT:

“…the world’s most viewed climate website”

– Fred Pearce The Climate Files: The Battle for the Truth about Global Warming

Here’s some year end numbers from my wordpress.com hosted stats page. All numbers represent full page views.

Here’s the data table of completed page views, peak month in green:

WordPress.com sent me this interesting (but a bit silly) year-end summary via email:

There are about 1 million books published worldwide per year. This blog was viewed about 34,000,000 times in 2010. That’s about 34 times as much as the total number of books published in 2010

In 2010, you wrote 1884 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 4175 posts.

Obviously Climategate and Copenhagen in December 2009 was a watershed traffic event, and as interest waned and summer set in, so did traffic. But, the overall trend remains upward:

I offer a special thanks to my moderation team, who work tirelessly in the background to keep this forum running smoothly. Thanks also go to guest posters who help bring a diversity of ideas and discussion.

And for those if you that have sent private messages of encouragement, I sincerely thank you.

Ah, that’s no fun. Where’s the comparison graphs with RC and the other AGW-monger sites?
I know, too triumphalist.
‘Grats anyhow!

January 6, 2011 12:47 pm

Wow, truly impressive.

many congratulations – your valiant efforts at debunking the AGW hype are amply rewarded in the readership of your blog.
it is interesting that your readership exceeds all the MSM pro AGW put together.
not being a stats expert – could you decipher that graph which is obviously some type of hockey stick?
happy new year from Carnoustie

Congratulations are certainly in order.
I did just go to alexa and was deathly surprised at the amount of traffic that rohm gets. (well below yours, but appears slightly above gavin and mcintyre). Went to visit his site for the first time in a year or so. The posts are 100% political and also certifiably insane.

January 6, 2011 1:06 pm

Hi Anthony
I am a stay at home mother of three who has been following your blog since my 12 year old son was given an assignment on ‘Global warming’ six years ago. I have a background in science so I researched the topic at the time to help my son with the assignment, and discovered an article by William Kinninmonth. Another by Bob Carter from James Cook University lead me to your site, and as a family, we have been avid followers ever since! I rarely post a comment – I just read and bore my family to tears reiterating facts gleaned from your latest posts! My family have all since become confirmed sceptics – thankyou Anthony and your team for such an informative and interesting blog!
Regards Kirstin

That is why you always see “year to year” sales numbers for stores. Almost every retail store is going to do much better in the late fall than summer, and so it is with blog sites as well. Your “Y2Y” numbers are the real trend, and look good! Other than as you noted the spike last year after Climategate and Copenhagan. (They look good, but it would be hard to maintain them).

January 6, 2011 1:19 pm

Keep up with the good work Anthony and all your backroom boys and girls.
We are also spreading the word amongst some of our family and friends and often refer to your posts in comments on other sites we read, with links of course.
Congratulations and we’ll raise a glass to you tonight to toast your success.

You da’ man, Anthony (along with your moderators)! Thanks for bringing together a variety of fascinating content worth reading in one site.

January 6, 2011 1:39 pm

Hopefully with those hits your ads pay for the site so you aren’t out of pocket too much.
Keep up the good work.

January 6, 2011 1:42 pm

Thank You Anthony. 3 years ago when we met for the first time, I never would have anticipated this future. You and charles and steve Mc did more than for me anyone in the blogosphere will ever know or appreciate. Thanks bro.

January 6, 2011 1:53 pm

Congratulations! I’m grateful that you continue the work.
BTW, was that a “hottest ever” event in month 27, or do you put it down to el Nino? And are you able to explain why there’s been no increase for the last 10 months? 🙂

Don’t think they’re likely to post their wordpress stats but a quick look at alexa.com
Percent of global Internet users who visit wattsupwiththat.com:
Reach Change
1 month 0.01340 +28%
3 month 0.01190 +11%
Percent of global Internet users who visit realclimate.org:
Reach Change
1 month 0.00165 +8%
3 month 0.00156 -7%
Given that 1 month is clearly weather, not climate, that 3 month figure is another decline they’ll have to hide 🙂

January 6, 2011 2:08 pm

Thanks Anthony. A fantastic result.
I became interested in this topic when my son gave me “An Inconvenient Truth” as a Christmas present. I was open-minded about the topic before viewing the film but after watching it became very skeptical regarding the claims the film made about the anthropogenic affect of CO2. I eventually ended up on your site approximately 2 years ago and have gained tremendous respect and admiration for WUWT and all of the contributors that make it a success. Thanks for the valuable service that WUWT is making to the world!

January 6, 2011 2:18 pm

That graph shows a high correlation with atmospheric CO2, Anthony.
Anyway – congratulations and keep up the good work.

January 6, 2011 2:18 pm

I would imagine my experience is similar to many. The 09/10 winter, combined with the ‘climategate emails’, combined with common sense forced me to look at this issue afresh.
I’m a lifelong UK Guardian reading/left leaning liberal. In many respects my politics are unchanged but I’m indebted to Anthony and the many expert contributors to this site for challenging my understanding of the ‘facts’.
The debate is a fascinating one and this blog deserves great credit for continuing that conversation in a spirit of honesty and transparency.
It is the contrast between the tone struck here and that which chimes elsewhere which has for many of us sounded the alarm.
On the one had we have reasonable and measured questions weighed in the balance against received wisdom which claims to represent a ‘consensus’. On the other hand we hear an increasingly shrill and increasingly unyielding chorus defending an increasingly dubious position.
I wish you and yours all the best for 2011 Anthony and congratulations on what you have achieved so far.

January 6, 2011 2:19 pm

Stop the WUWT page views by month at month 27 and you’ve got a handsome hockey stick. Thanks for the tireless efforts of the WUWT team. This site has been a great read!

Well when you let the chips fly; and then let them fall where they may; people tend to notice.
It’s the “Managed News” cadre that get found out early, and lose their credibility.
Have you noticed that quite a few who seem to have already taken the coolade, still come to WUWT to peddle their wares.
The most Conservative “Talk Radio” station that I know of, presents a never ending stream of green leftist warmist, sky is falling, propaganda ads; because even those who absolutely abhor the message of that station, understand the power of readership. Well we should take their money as fast as we can.
Same here Anthony; even the most hardened of the Climatists; know that their message circulation is better at WUWT than at their own kin sites.
So take their money Anthony; and here’s hoping for another banner year; I almost can’t wait until the ice extent starts heading south again; much more funner than any car chase scene.
And I still have high hopes for a road to Damascus episode for Joel Shore !

January 6, 2011 2:37 pm

Anthony, Moderators, Guest Posters, and Commenters,
Thanks for a year of infotainment, truth, and fun. I appreciate this site very much – it has been a real eye-opener for me as I only got interested after Climategate. And to you all that saw through the fakery that is CAGW my hat is off to all of you. Have a great skeptical year, stay warm, and keep having fun.

January 6, 2011 2:45 pm

Congratulations on a job well done, but I think WordPress is a bit mistaken about the million books a year statistic. They probably mean a million titles a year or some such thing, given that J.K. Rowlings “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire” sold 3 million copies in the US in just two days, and “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” sold 9 million copies in 24 hours.
I’m not sure WordPress should be informed of this discrepancy, as they might really think they’re winning hands-down against dead-tree print formats and the inevitable ego deflation might affect their quality of service.
I say we keep them blissfully ignorant. 🙂

I am a twice a day wuwt viewer and have been for the last 18 months. It is now an integral part of my daily routine.
I am constantly amazed at the amount and quality of information 0n the site and cannot get enough of it.
Thanks for the continuing education, long may you and your team keep up the good work.
I have a feeling in my bones that 2011 is going to be a tipping point in this complex non linear coupled and chaotic debate and you and your team will be needed explain the intricacies to the non-scientists like me.
Thank you

Are these real numbers? Or do they have various multipliers to correct possible mistakes? You truly are one of my favorite websites.

January 6, 2011 2:53 pm

Well done Anthony and my fellow moderators. And big thanks to the quality contributors here, both authors and commenters.
We have changed the debate together, and forced the powers that be to offer us seats at the table.
Onwards 2011!

January 6, 2011 2:56 pm

I (like many others) am highly appreciative of this site, even with the obligatory trolls the openness of discussion is its prime attraction.
I absolutely detest the RC site – the comments and general ethos is completely manufactured. I haven’t been there for ages and refuse to go, even for an update because I’d hate to be giving them ‘hits’!
well done one and all, especially Anthony and the mods!

January 6, 2011 3:05 pm

Anthony & the Moderators,
Great job. Interesting and challenging content. Critical and knowledgeable comments, tastefully presented (even when some commenters might prefer otherwise). 🙂
I have long since turned off those shouting “denier” and “anti-science”. I no longer even read their posts, no less respond to them. Ad hominem attacks are the last refuge of the intellectually challenged, even those with a PhD.
Keep on keepin’ on!

January 6, 2011 3:08 pm

Unfortunately if a number of readers apply the same reading to that graph as they do global temperature graphs they will conclude there has been a decline in readership since December 2009.

I don’t remember how I stumbled onto your site but I’m glad I did. I think I was searching the internet for the latest of Mann’s antics a few years ago and Google brought up a link to one of your posts.
I view this site constantly throughout the day. I find the posts and the comments absolutely fascinating. I never can wait for the latest round!
Congratulations on the well deserved traffic. Keep up the great work!

January 6, 2011 3:10 pm

Using my Internet Change Model I’m projecting that in 50 years you will have 200 trillion page views – I’m afraid you must restrict your blogposts to prevent the destruction of the internets

And if Mann et al. read the graph, they’d stop at Jan 2010, model the rise as a hockey stick, and conclude within 10 years the internet will melt down from projected billions and billions of hits per day…then spend the rest of the year justifying their projections even as the new data refuted those projections.

Best regards – but beware of burnout – its happened to me twice and I tell you its
pretty horendous to live thru.

January 6, 2011 3:24 pm

Congrats Anthony. Keep up the good work. Nature is working on the side of climate realism, so sanity and reason will soon prevail over this huge global climate racket.

Onion says:
January 6, 2011 at 3:08 pm
‘Unfortunately if a number of readers…etc’ – why say ‘Unfortunately’? – because they conclude a decline in global temperatures? – So, let me get this straight, you are saying the decline in temperatures is as apparent from the graphs as the decline in readership? or did you get yourself all confused by your reverse logic? If said readers conclude that the temp graphs have declined and the facts show that readership has declined – both are correct, yes?
Your warmist illogic doesn’t wash here – best go back to Real Climate!

January 6, 2011 3:54 pm

Congrats Anthony for what you do. It’s the best !!!

January 6, 2011 4:07 pm

I’m probably been late to the party (compared to most) but appreciate the wealth information provided by your blog. Through it, I learn something new everyday.
A big thank you to Anthony and others who make this blog possible. Best wishes for really ‘cool’ (in the vernacular, tho’ I’m not sure it can be avoided:-) 2011 and congratulations on a wonderful achievement.

I’m very Impressed by the high quality of posts from this site and the amount of intelligent comments from it’s readers, I’m surprised that more people are not standing up to the snake oil salesmen trying to sell “cagw” to the public and the bucket full of blatant lies coming from government bodies, public officials and all those on the “climate change gravy train”.
When you are all finished patting your selves on the back and basking in all the well deserved Congratulations and popularity GET BACK TO WORK (ha ha ha).

January 6, 2011 4:50 pm

I thought meteorology and climatology pretty boring until a few years ago when the Alarmists started turning up the heat (as it were), and I realized they could not account for geo-climatic history (a mile of ice over Boston just 20K years ago, for instance), not to mention recent human history (the settlement of Greenland by Vikings), so were clearly pushing a political agenda with little or no scientific basis. But it was hard to argue with the then ‘conventional wisdom’ without more facts. So it was with gratitude that I finally discovered WUWT, which not only offered a treasure-trove of evidence and discussion, but turned these dry, abstruse topics into matters of intense interest. Controversy, of course, is the life of the mind, and WUWT delves right to the heart of the debate, pulling no punches. Even when it’s over my head, it’s fascinating.
So thanks Anthony and company, and let’s hope that by this time next year the Climatists will be hiding in South American caves with the Lysenkoists and the perpetrators of Piltdown Man—and the politicians will have given up trying to find ways to tax the infamous ‘carbon’.

You should be proud of your accomplishments. While the main stream media blows left and right according to their marketing polls, you uphold what were once the ideals of journalism: neutrality, objectivity, clear and concise reporting and unbiased analysis. Although many consider yours to be a “skeptic” website, I consider it to be a fair-minded forum for climate news and, more importantly, analysis. You have made significant strides in helping people understand climate science and helped inform and shape the debate regarding the issues arising from that scientific research.
Again, thank you. And keep up the good work.

January 6, 2011 5:14 pm

And on top of everything else, your success makes Joe Romm apoplectic.
Seriously, yours is a wonderful blog. I check in every evening and I always find something of interest. Hope all is well with your family.
Keep fighting the good fight.
Happy New Year,

January 6, 2011 5:17 pm

Congratulations Anthony and crew! And a big thankyou to those who post and comment! I check this site daily and obviously value the knowledge I gain here! Please continue to be the best science website in the world!

January 6, 2011 5:32 pm

As a visitor from early summer of 2008, I thank you so much Anthony and The Team.
Today is the coldest for this season, and the northern (and the Japan Sea side) part of Japan is now having heavy snowfall:
(Click the bottom-left orange button to watch the past 3-hour trend at 10-min steps)
Thanks to the ridge running though the mainland, Tokyo seldom has snowfall but receives cold dry northerly wind, and the temperature was 1 degC this morning (now 10:30 am JST).
Wish a happy new year everyone!

January 6, 2011 5:53 pm

Yes indeed, well done to all.

January 6, 2011 5:58 pm

Ok…now if you throw out that spike as an anomoly, and then take the step function after the anomoly, we see that readership is in a decline.
Congrats, going stronger than ever!!

Frequent flyer. Never dissapointed. Love the place.
BTW, the tips and notes comment box has disappeared again… OK if I post the following here? It is a good laugh.
Something along the lines of; Dog swears he is a Cat “I know I look like a Dog, and I act like a Dog, but I am a Cat. Really. But I am growing tired of being a Cat because of all the other Cats bad behaviour, so I might become a Dog. I wonder if he is related to Rahm.

January 6, 2011 6:50 pm

Anthony and the team, thank you all for the work you do and the effort into making the data about climate change available for all to see and comment on because I know I would never have gained a more knowledgeable take on this particular subject in such a short space of time on my own. I can safely say the discussion is not as simplified as I used to view it! It’s been said before but it would be wicked to see the other pro-AGW sites traffic and see how they rate with WUWT 😉

January 6, 2011 6:58 pm

As others have commented above, I check this site multiple times a day as part of my daily routine. It makes me think, and it brings to my attention information I would never have time to find on my own.
The discussions and debate among the regular contributors have become a necessary part of my life. I find the intelligent and perceptive posts and the responses refreshing and revive my hope that all the world is not awash in sloppy thinking and follow the leader trends. It has sharpened my beliefs on many subjects.
Thanks to all who participate and of course to Anthony for his leadership and the fine crew of moderators he has assembled to keep this blog at the top of so many peoples daily information fix.

January 6, 2011 7:46 pm

I never paid much attention to climate issues until I read a bit about the controversy in the UK over “An Inconvenient Truth.” Then I watched “The Great Global Warming Swindle” when it was first broadcast and was convinced something was wrong. A long spell in hospital last year gave me the time to research, and the ClimateGate emails confirmed it, we were being conned.
This site has become required daily reading, along with Bishop Hill, EU Referendum, Steven Goddard, Tom Nelson and others. What I appreciate is the science and the tone of the debate; moderate, polite, intelligent. I contrast this with the rants of George Monbiot, Marcus Brigstocke, Joe Romm et al which have little to do with the science and all to do about belittling “unbelievers” like me.
All my family are confirmed sceptics thanks to the information I glean here and elsewhere. As I travel extensively for business I find more and more people who don’t know but are unconvinced of the warmist propaganda and it doesn’t take much to get them thinking and pointing to this site usually works. This is in stark contrast to 2 years ago when to even question AGW it was met with stares of disbelief and people edging away from you.
Thank you and keep up the good work.

I submit you get your information about Fox News from the DNC or any of the alphabet news channels, and probably from rags like the New York Times, too. You certainly don’t get it from watching Fox News.
BTW, it’s “winning”, not “wining” unless, of course, you equate spirits with success.

January 6, 2011 10:03 pm

Congratulations on having the best climate site on the internet. I make a point of visiting WUWT daily and the only complaint I have about your site is that it’s frequently too interesting. During the 2 years that I’ve known about WUWT, I’ve learned an incredible amount about climate science (the real stuff, not what the watermelons are trying to get people to believe). This has been very useful on a number of occasions when I’ve had people tell me about the latest incarnation of thermagedon that was going to happen any time now and I was able to set them straight. I’ve steered a number of people towards WUWT which has a very good balance of topics ranging from the understandable by anyone literate to graduate degree helpful.
Aside from the climategate emails, one of the most important postings on WUWT may be todays Knox and Douglass paper showing no increase in ocean temperatures despite steadily rising CO2 levels. Considering the oceans act as a calorimeter, CAGW may have finally sustained a mortal blow.

January 6, 2011 11:25 pm

Hotrod LarryL, said it best for me {thanks HLL!}.
And of course a big thank you to you Anthony and everyone else for bringing this informative unbiased site to us.
Glad the troll control is on, makes for great daily reading on the threads as well.
A few years back, had a conflict with my daughter who was being taught in school that Greenland was just a propaganda effort to get people to move there – her explanation of what she was taught. We had a very frank discussion and fortunately today she’s a skeptic and can handle the silliness that floats around about AGW and the ‘poor starving or drowning polar bears’ at the college she attends. But at that point I had a sinking feeling…something wasn’t right.
RE: donations to WUWT, a good yard stick to consider is even a portion of the cost of daily newspapers/media that are no longer purchased. WUTH has a place in our household budget this year. 🙂

January 6, 2011 11:25 pm

Dear Anthony,
I am truly grateful to you and your marvellous team.
Your perseverence in maintaining WUWT to its high level of credibility, morality and veracity brings together different people throughout the world, and enables us to arrive at our own conclusions without any political slant.
With heartfelt thanks,

January 7, 2011 1:58 am

Many congratulations and thanks to you and all the team for making this site a beacon of sanity, sense and real science. I frequently find myself in a state of near despair at the prospect of the mad future being designed and promoted by the AGW cultists and the sheep who follow them unquestioningly (especially here in the UK and the EU, where the delusion is already enshrined in laws which will drive us to poverty and darkness, both literal and intellectual). Coming here daily restores my hope that these lunatics can be defeated by reason, despite the power and influence of the conmen, fools and outright knaves who promote the fallacy. Feliciter!

Here are the sight info comments from Alexa for Realclimate and WUWT-
About RealClimate (realclimate.org): Commentary on climate science news by working climate scientists, with discussion.
RealClimate’s three-month global Alexa traffic rank is 136,655. The site has been online for at least six years. The site has attained a traffic rank of 40,916 among users in the US, where approximately 56% of its audience is located. Relative to the overall population of internet users, the site’s audience tends to be aged 45–55 and over 65; they are also disproportionately high-income, childless men browsing from home who have postgraduate educations. Visitors to Realclimate.org spend approximately 68 seconds on each pageview and a total of two minutes on the site during each visit.
Watts Up With That?
Wattsupwiththat.wordpress.com’s three-month global Alexa traffic rank is 488,417. The fraction of visits to this site referred by search engines is very small, and visitors to this site spend roughly seven minutes per visit to the site and 45 seconds per pageview. Almost all visitors to Wattsupwiththat.wordpress.com come from the US, where it has attained a traffic rank of 68,010. Roughly 19% of visits to the site are bounces (one pageview only).
So the typical RC visitor is a college educated middle-aged childless man browsing from home… Who writes this stuff?
REPLY: I don’t know where you got that text for WUWT, perhaps the old startup URL of wattsupwiththat.wordpress.com ? It’s not current. But this is what Alexa.com currently says:

Being a global warming believer, I would suggest that your site stats are not increasing but on a decreasing trend.
You need to invest £ms in advertising to address this clear problem with promoting your site, in my Goremless Industries service. Do it, part with the cash before it’s too late and the downward trend becomes unstoppable and you end up with -1000000 site view a month!
The end is nigh…

Congratulations are too early. It’s not over ’til the fat lady sings and at the moment she’s nowhere in sight. Yes, the fight is going well but there’s a long way to go. Just KBO, Anthony and team. The great unwashed out here can’t do much but we have to keep spreading the message. For a moment, I thought I was spreading a religion so just make sure you keep bashing the enemy with science (real science). The truth will make you free! (And with a bit of luck, pay less tax to these scammers).

Way to go, Anthony and all!
However, were those traffic charts peer reviewed by the most suitable and appropriate peers?! 😉

REPLY: I don’t know where you got that text for WUWT, perhaps the old startup URL of wattsupwiththat.wordpress.com
Yes, that’s the old wordpress.com site info. My apologies, and thanks for the correction.

When I first found WUWT? it was like a Jacob’s Ladder shone down on me. Remember that for at least 20 years, My father (Dr. Tim Ball), Richard Lindzen, and myself were the only skeptics that I knew. It was a long dark period to have to stick to ones guns. Socially and economically ostracized, it was very difficult. People can be brutal, especially when funding is on the line. Thanks to Anthony and all the mods and contributors who have helped me to understand that common sense CAN prevail over bloated green propaganda. The “we predicted the cooling” meme coming from the alarmist camp is absolutely hilarious. They are eating their own tail/tale.

Revision if it’s not too late, should read Dr. Richard Lindzen. Credit where credit is due.

Thank you Anthony et al (not the gore-m-less) for all your hard work on this site. It is much appreciated. I’ll try to sock a contribution soon, but have no spare funds atm after having to buy another great load of highly price-inflated heating oil lately; thanks to our global-warming loaded winter!

Congratulations to Anthony. (Nobody beats “the Rev”!)
It is an honor and a privilege to moderate for him.
