We'd like to take a moment to thank all our contributing members and visiting guests for a rather stunning milestone in ATS history, a
ranking below 1,700!
Quantcast is an increasingly popular website traffic ranking service that has just over 22 million domains being tracked. Everything from Google.com
to some of the most obscure personal blogs are being traffic-ranked through a combination of techniques. To put our 1,693 number in perspective, as of
November of 2010, ATS is in the top 0.0076% of all websites on the Internet.
For even better perspective, our current traffic is in the same range as:
And our current traffic is beating these other popular sites:
This is an incredible validation that the combined efforts of us (ATS staff) doing our best to ensure civility and decorum, and you (our members) are
doing your best to to fill the information voids of mainstream media with compelling content. It's also a clear fulfillment of our continuing promise
that AboveTopSecret.com will work hard to ensure the world notices what our members post, as clearly you're being noticed.
Make no mistake, a user-generated "alternative topics" website such as us beating out popular online destinations such as Fox Sports, BBC.com (in US
traffic), Technorati and The Smoking gun is a stunning accomplishment. More and more people are discovering your opinions, ideas, and alternative take
on mainstream news and information. And that is why we do what we do.
