11,000,000: Turley Blog Hits New High

Well, it is official. Yesterday we passed the 11 million mark for “hits”.  We continue to be ranked in the top ten most visited legal blogs in the world by AVVO. We are also just short of 5000 followers on Twitter.

This year is already shaping up as a record year. Each year, we have grown significantly in readership — a credit to our guest bloggers and readers. Thanks for making this such a unique place for civil and substantive exchanges about the law, policy, and life.

Congratulations everyone.

    none taken, I’m honing my rhetorical vocabulary.

    I love the sound of train whistles…


  2. Birthdays with zeros in them tend to be traumatic. This is different. Congrats to Professor Turley, guest bloggers and distinguished guests.


  3. @Bron: Is that 11,000,000 unique individuals?

    No, a hit is a download of some page on the Turley blog. Every time you reload any page, even just to refresh the comment list, that counts as a hit.

    If the 11 million is for the year so far, that is about 125,000 hits per day. Probably some fraction of that is regular readers; we tend to have a few hits per day on the blog. I am not sure unique readers are that relevant; somebody that reads a single post by Turley and never comes back is probably not influenced at all by anything that happens here. It isn’t like a movie, where the content and message is always the same.

  4. As my rhetoric teacher would have said, “Eat sh17, 11 million flies can’t be wrong!”

    8-{D congrats prof, this is a regular stop on my Intertube visits because it is always interesting, informative and mostly troll free. I appreciate it.

  5. 11 million per day, year?
    Great, whichever:
    The only problem is theres so much for some, as my friends say. I spoonfeed them once in a while.
    Any solution?

  6. Who knew? I thought it was just a little salon, where mostly nice people could discuss interesting thoughts.

  7. Why isn’t “An Act for the Relief of Sick and Disabled Seamen” relevant? The law authorized the creation of a government operated marine hospital service and mandated that privately employed sailors be required to purchase health care insurance.

    It was signed into law by John Adams in 1798. At the time Thomas Jefferson was President of the Senate and Jonathan Dayton, the youngest signer of the Constitution, was Speaker of the House. If these people don’t understand the Constitution who does?
