McRapey is lying AGAIN

McRapey is obviously having difficulties accepting the fact that in traffic terms, I passed him by like a Porsche blowing the doors off a Yugo on the Autobahn.
 John Scalzi ‏@scalzi
(A minor footnote to my bio will be how some jackasses said I lied about my site traffic because they didn't understand the phrase "up to.")

John Scalzi ‏@scalzi
My Web site's having one of those high-volume traffic days certain detractors of mine loudly say I never have, because they're always wrong.
Being both an SJW and a Gamma male, you know John Scalzi is always going to lie. He did say "up to" in an attempt to deceive the New York Times reporter about his traffic in an interview, but he straight up lied to Lightspeed and on Twitter, when he did not.

EXHIBIT ONE

"For one thing, his blog gets an extraordinary amount of traffic for a writer’s website–Scalzi himself quotes it at over 45,000 unique visitors daily and more than two million page views monthly."
- Lightspeed Magazine, September 2010 interview 

I note that the word "over" is not the phrase "up to". At the time, in August 2010, he didn't have "more than two million page views monthly", he had 409,745.

EXHIBIT TWO

John Scalzi @scalzi 6:20 AM - 4 Dec 12
Hey, authors of non-traditionally published books! Promote your book to my 50K daily blog readers TODAY


"Up to" 50k daily blog readers? No. Do you spot the phrase? I don't.

EXHIBIT THREE

John Scalzi ‏@scalzi 3:33 PM - 10 Aug 13
@gregpak I think if people like the content they will keep coming in regardless. I mean, my site gets 50K readers a day 


"Up to" 50K readers a day? No. Do you spot the phrase? I don't.

So, as usual, McRapey is lying about his site traffic. Second, he is also lying about what I have said about it. I have never said that Whatever never gets the occasional spike, usually as a result of external links to it. I know exactly when, and how big, those historical spikes were, going back to 2008.

What McRapey does is talk very loudly about those spikes when they occur in order to try to deceive people into believing they are generally indicative of his overall level of traffic, which is simply not the case. Unlike me, he never mentions his average daily traffic, because it is much lower than he wants everyone to believe. He doesn't even report his annual traffic anymore, because it is now so embarrassingly low in comparison with mine. The most traffic he has ever had was just over 8 million pageviews back in 2012; in 2016 Whatever is unlikely to reach even one-quarter the traffic here, which is on track to be in excess of 25 million pageviews.

I'm not surprised he had a short-term spike in traffic; they often occur in the aftermath of an event like the Orlando shooting. My traffic also increased, from a daily average of 76,166 pageviews in June to 91,796 yesterday. But unlike McRapey, you'll never see me claiming "up to 119,699 daily blog readers", as I could, because I feel absolutely no need to deceive or mislead people about my site traffic.

Hey didn't somebody write a book about this?

Anonymous Gen. Kong June 14, 2016 12:16 PM  

What would you expect him to do, tell the truth or something?? He is an SJW after all. Lying is what they do. It's right there in the title of your useful little book. Guess the sheer brazen nature of it in the face of all the evidence laid out shows that he's not a very smart SJW. The smarter ones are better at lying. McRapey is the Baghdad Bob of SJWs.

i think he's faking that.

remember, it's for his daughter's self esteem, because she can't outlift anyone else.

Sadly, I don't think so. Seeing as he has probably never done any real physical labor in his life, and is obviously sedentary now, He might be able to lift 100 lbs. MIGHT. If she's in any high school activites or training, it wouldn't surprise me if she could top that number, if barely. So yes, she can out lift him, but it's like placing first in the special olympics.

I am guessing he got the high volume day from something stupid he did being mentioned here,

Blogger Cynic In Chief June 14, 2016 5:27 PM  

Looks like Scalzirella has been listening to the mother of lies (Hillary Clinton) instead of the father of lies. You don't tell blatant lies, you tell convenient half-truths.

If you want to inflate your traffic, report on the number of "hits" instead of page views. Then you load up your blog with a dozen useless scripts and beacons that do nothing but drive the hits up. Voila! Your hits are way above Vox's pageviews.

"Scalzi is literally burning up with envy. He is starting to realise he is in a downward spiral and he has no way out of it."

Sure he does. He can go write his 13 books. How many has he done so far? One? Lots to go!

Blogger Anthony June 15, 2016 12:01 PM  

So, as entertaining as this is, there are some bigger-picture questions. Just like it's astonishing how few books get you on the "best seller" list, what does it take to be a big author blog?

Do Scalzi's spikes come when he makes political posts, or talks about books, or posts cat pictures? Box, how do your book posts do compared to your political ones? How does According to Hoyt do compared to Mad Genius Club?

Then, how did Scalzi do compared to writers who mostly talk about books and writing? More hits than ACH? Than Seanan McGuire? Than Larry Correia? GRRM?
