According to the lies of Mitch “Drunk Drives Over A Bicyclist” Pellecchia, fishmonger for the fishwrapper MargateNews (NSFW), his blog enjoys nearly 15,000 visitors a month. Not unique visitors mind you, just folks hitting his page — aka the same 200 people madly hitting the refresh key.
Sure right, pal.
So imagine our chagrin when we reviewed Pellechhia’s own advertising slick traffic numbers which estimates “7,000 exposures in first month, or 100,000 yearly.” Then there’s Pellecchia’s 2012 bankruptcy filing which indicates he earned $336.16 for the year (or $0.00 in income — as seen in the above screen grab from his bankruptcy filing papers).
A ton of supposed traffic that earns him $300 for the year?
I believe Pellecchia’s advertisers should demand an independent third-party review of his website’s Google Analytics data … just to make sure there’s truth in advertising, ’cause it seems to us, and we’re IT experts, something is fishy over at the fishwrapper.
For illustrative purposes, the day before we erected the Festivus Pole over 125,000 different people visited MAOS. The day the pole went up, almost double that.
