As a long time follower of Drudge Report page stats, I’m looking forward with great anticipation to the day when his annual hits pass the 1 billion mark. (He’s currently over 975 million.) Drudge has been pronounced dead so many times by the liberal media and other species headed for extinction, it’s worth noting that his circulation shows no sign of diminishing. I remember the days when 15 million hits a month was a good showing. Now he’s getting 110 million a month and climbing. It’s hard to argue with objective measures of success, at least credibly. It won’t stop his critics, but who reads them anyway?
