After their Alexa.com ranking tanked, the gold bug site the Daily Bell shot the messenger in calling Alexa’s ranking system an “elite methodology.”
Well, look who’s adopted an “elite methodology” now. As of November 8, 2012, none other than the Daily Bell, itself, has adopted one, by installing Alexa’s paid service, “CERTIFIED PRO,” on their servers.
This from the same site that claimed it had received 17 million monthly page views, without providing any evidence whatsoever for such a bold claim, considering other sites with far higher rankings report that amount of traffic in an entire year.
For how much longer will the majority of those in the alternative research community who frequent that site continue to let such claims and contradictions go unchallenged? Is it just entertainment for most people?
