If history had been any guide, 2011 should have been an incredibly slow year in political social media until the Presidential campaign heats up.  Normally, we see a spike of traffic around election time, and then a huge dropoff with a slowly rebuilding spike starting roughly a year and half later.

John Kasich’s radical agenda single-handedly changed that.  In January, we broke all sorts of all-time records for the site: we shattered our single-day traffic record, our single-post traffic record, and then our weekly and month traffic records.  But our traffic in January wasn’t just single-post spikes, we saw a steady increase across the board as our baseline traffic numbers rose.

As a result, those records lasted only a month.  By mid-February, we had all new records.  Our traffic since November has been going up exponentially.  In the first week of March, we’ve already nearly tied with our monthly traffic in January.

According to BlogAds, we’re in the Top #20 of sites advertising in their progressive hives nationally!  We’re getting more traffic than national blogs like MyDD, Swing State Project, Pandagon, and Tom Tomorrow’s blog.  We’re just behind The Young Turks in traffic numbers.

So, if you’re looking to advertise your company or your services, you’re not going to get a better deal than advertising on Plunderbund right now.  Your ad will be seen by over ten thousand Ohioans daily.  No other advertising venue gives you that size of audience with our bargain rates.  Contact Eric for more information today (eric-at-plunderbund-dot-com)!

And to our loyal readers, new and old, thank you!  Sorry for the plug, but we’ve got to pay some bills doing this from time to time!  😉

We now return to our regularly scheduled posts of progressive political snark…

    Very impressive!

    I’ll take this opportunity to give some “bad” advertising to the Jiffy Lube on East Main Street (near James) in Columbus. Just got my oil changed an hour ago and had to watch Fox News in the lobby while they serviced my car. As a teacher in Ohio, I took offense to the misinformation presented and the bashing of teachers. After inquiring about their company policy, I was told that the general manager of that franchise and six other locations has exercised his rights in a democracy to only broadcast Fox News in all his locations. I told the manager present that I would need to exercise my democratic rights when choosing where to get my oil changed. I got a smile and approval from the man who worked on my car and was told other customers had done the same.

    It is wonderful to know that the facts are getting out and that your message is being heard.

    Great work.

    I just found you guys about 2 weeks ago, and I can’t shut up (apologies). If ever I’m feeling content, complacent, that all is well in Ohio and the world, all I have to do is dial up Plunderbund to be reminded that we’ve got ourselves a hot little mess.

    Thanks for bursting my bubble. I kind of resent it, but I just can’t look away.

    Glad you’re getting the traffic. I send all the members of the teacher’s union that I’m president of to your blog to get the latest on SB 5. Keep up the good work!
