How popular is the Tea Party Website?

At 5:30 AM, on Saturday morning of February 28th, 2009, I sat down at my desk and began developing TaxDayTeaParty.com. At the time, I had no idea who would join me or how many people would get involved, but I knew I was going to heavily promote it through the DontGo Movement lists and give it everything I had with regards to grassroots based marketing.

The site was almost an instant hit, getting slapped with surges of traffic in less than 48 hours. My good friends over at Smart Girls Politics joined up, followed by the folks at TCOT, and before we knew it, we had something BIG on our hands.

We’re currently clearing an easy 90,000 unique visits a day. The traffic numbers have climbed so high that the guys over at GetClicky have disabled our account due to extremely high pageviews.

In fact, according to Alexa (one can argue the importance of Alexa data, but the numbers are fascinating none the less), the TaxDayTeaParty.com website is more popular than BarackObama.com!

Granted, there are certainly blogs and sites out there that by far exceed the numbers we’re seeing, but remember… we started this website less than six weeks ago.

All things considered… we’ve done a damn fine job. And this is all thanks to people like YOU who have pitched in countless hours and energy to make this all happen.

Nothing rivals a true grassroots movement.

NOTE: I found this post along the lines of the same topic after I published mine. Well worth the visit.

Powerline: World's Worst Columnist?

Posted by John at 9:39 PM

...The tea parties are "the subject of considerable mockery, and rightly so"--but such foolishness is "standard practice within the Republican Party." Republicans, Krugman says, make "bizarre claims"...

In a world of lazy journalists, Paul Krugman takes the prize. The New York Times' willingness to continue publishing his drivel is one more nail in the company's coffin.

I am watching Keith Obermann on MSNBC and he mentioned your name as the founder of the Tea Parties so I thought I would see what you are up to.

I wrote this thinking that April 15 would see the interest in the Tea Parties decline until next year, but there are more being organised for July 4th:
After the Tea Parties I revise these posts as the topics evolve, so I will add to it as time goes on.

I am a:"Smartgirl" Too!
