This guy did the analysis. It’s a 58% drop for liberal blogs, vs. a 36% drop for conservatives:
In the three months following the November 08 election, political blog traffic has dropped significantly. I surveyed the traffic stats of 20 major political blogs — split evenly between liberal and conservative — and compared the number of page views for the three months leading up to the election to the three months after. In that time period liberal blogs dropped from 302,711,611 total page views to 126,502,281 (58%) while conservative sites dropped from 233,950,986 to 149,744,909 (36%).
Curious, I ran my own numbers. In the same three-month periods, I fell from 1,989,843 page views (Aug.-Oct.) to 1,404,066 (Nov.-Jan.) — which is about a 30% drop, if my English-major math skills are holding up.
No fun, certainly — but it was predictable all along.
Thanks to Jon Henke.
