Meh, it's just Goddard. That's what he does.

I think Goddard is pretty well marginalized when posting on his own site.  He had a soapbox with WUWT.

You have to take these third party stats sites with a grain of salt but here is Goddard's stats compared to SkS:


Not bad for a Johnny come lately. I gave him an infusion of traffic when I debunked one of his earlier cherry picked posts and when he gloated about his traffic surge, I've regretted it ever since. Hence the "must... resist... urge..."

John...  I think Goddard's numbers are just a spillover from WUWT.  If he got a surge in numbers from one of your posts then he's just seeing a bunch of our guys over there.  

If you look at it like a sales person, you don't want surge, you want "lift."  That's a surge that pulls your longer term numbers up.

It's hard to tell but I think Goddard's numbers are declining overall.
