It’s Official. The Gateway Pundit (TGP) reached a record number of page views in 2017. We still have more than a month to go!
Thank you all for ‘Making TGP Great Again’ this year!
TGP readership is at an all-time high in 2017 and we still have more than a month to go!
We reached more than 196 million page views in 2017. This surpassed our previous record from 2016 of 182 million page views.
We thank all our readers for all their support.
The record this year is not surprising as Americans want the truth and the coastal media has lost the trust of the American consumer.
Americans know that they can count on TGP to provide them stories that are not ‘fake news’ or biased hit jobs from mainstream media outlets like CNN, The New York Times, the Washington Post, ABC, NBC, CBS and far left outlets. TGP shares posts that are ignored by the MSM, articles that support President Trump and the American worker. Thank you for making us your choice for news.
On the other hand, 2017 has been a very challenging year for TGP. Facebook and Twitter have altered their sites to prevent TGP stories from being shared. They have employed far left operatives who deem which stories are acceptable and others they will kill off before they go viral. Stories like ‘Hillary is going to win in a landslide’, ‘Hillary is not sick’ or ‘Trump colluded with Russia’ are considered accurate reports. These powerful tech firms act as gatekeepers and prevent conservative content from being shared online.
Last year we were one of the few conservative sites that supported candidate Trump – along with Breitbart, The Drudge Report, Infowars, Zero Hedge and Conservative Treehouse. We are proud of our efforts to report the truth that led to Trump’s historic win.
This year we have been targeted and have seen our numbers related to Facebook and Twitter decline dramatically.
In every single Facebook category our numbers are down. In page visits our numbers were skyrocketing before the election. Then in three distinct periods our numbers were cut off.
This had nothing to do with the quality of our posts as we have proof that our generic numbers are up and increasing.
Our Facebook ‘weekly total reach’ numbers are also way down.
In all statistical categories provided to us by Facebook our current numbers are below linear projections of where we should be.
Media Matters, the group supported by Nazi sympathizer George Soros is also following every move we make and doing all they can to smear The Gateway Pundit and soil our name.
But we persevered with your support!
