Conspiracy theorists like to make things out of connections. I must not be one because I found a connection, but I don’t know what to make out of it.
The web site Alexa.com computes statistics about web site traffic. They do this through a sampling process involving people who install their tool bar. Today I was looking up stats on this web site and that of Mario Apuzzo, and just for grins I looked up Orly Taitz’s site (that historically does just a little bit better than this site at Alexa) The analysis had this curious entry:
Orlytaitzesq.com is ranked #251,665 in the world according to the three-month Alexa traffic rankings. Compared with internet averages, the site appeals more to users who are over the age of 45; its visitors also tend to consist of high-income, childless men browsing from home who have attended college. The site is relatively popular among users in the city of Orlando (where it is ranked #2,578). While we estimate that 63% of Orlytaitzesq.com’s visitors are in the US, where it is ranked #68,859, it is also popular in Colombia, where it is ranked #4,448. The site has a bounce rate of about 84% (i.e., 84% of visits consist of only one pageview)
Here are the 3-month rankings for some of the birther blogs (best ranking first):
Obama Conspiracy Theories (at 72,173) ranks a little behind Orly Taitz (at 68,859) in the rankings. I have always thought that Alexa statistics are significantly biased by the the demographics of who would install a toolbar and who would not.
