This is a monthly feature on Diggers Realm that we do to sum up silly searches, stats and sites that have been helpful to Diggers Realm last month.
With the election ending a lot of blogs saw their traffic go into the toilet, not here at Diggers Realm.
We continued to follow our formula of covering the issues and latest stories and saw huge growth throughout the month of November.
Diggers Realm Stats And Growth For The Month Of November
Last month we projected the following:
We're not sure how November is going to go, but if things fall in line as we expect we'd anticipate a quarter of a million Page Views for the month.
The month of November surpassed October in page views by a huge margin.
There were 340817 page views for November up from 233366 page views in October.
We're still small compared to some other sites that get that in a single day, but we're growing which is good.

P.S. Holy shit did this take a long time to put together. I hope you enjoyed it!
Um, yeah, well, er, it's an okay post, I guess. Of course, my opinion is probably tempered by the fact that Interested-Participant was beaten out for recognition by a blog that didn't post in the month and seems to have disappeared. So, with regard to the post, it's hard to be objective right after being walloped in the gut.
I usually don't give accolades to people who have done nothing. However, it needs to be mentioned that Major League Baseball has fans that consistently vote for non-performers as starters in the All-Star Game. It's all based on reputation as opposed to results. So, your recognition of Cardens.net has a precedent.
