Boom: Breitbart.com Breaks Web Traffic Record Set in 2016 — by Mid-November!

Recommended Posts


On Monday, November 20, Breitbart News surpassed its total number of pageviews from the year 2016, making 2017 the biggest year ever for web traffic to the conservative news site. Breitbart.com currently has over 2.2 billion pageviews and counting for 2017, exceeding 2016’s 2.18 billion total pageviews, according to Google Analytics.

“We have the hardest working staff in media, and by far the most resilient. To stand as strong as our team has stood over these past two years has been truly impressive. They deserve this great moment,” Breitbart News editor-in-chief Alex Marlow said.

“It’s hard to imagine a year being any bigger than 2016 for Breitbart.com,” Marlow said. “I thought maybe years from now we could repeat the numbers we saw last year. To think that 2017 is even bigger, and that it’s only November… Wow.”

“The credit goes to our loyal readers,” Breitbart CEO Larry Solov said. “Americans trust us to report the stories the establishment media ignores, and that trust motivates us everyday.”

Breitbart News ranked as the #1 political publisher in the country on Instagram in September, according to a report by the leading industry analytics site NewsWhip. Breitbart topped the list with an 8.69 Instagram engagement score, towering over its closest competitor’s score of 5.50. In October, NewsWhip ranked Breitbart as the #13 most popular publisher in the world on Facebook. An in-depth report on conservative media published by Axios.com last June, credited Breitbart as having the “most engaging right-leaning” Facebook page in the country since President Trump’s election.
