10 Million Angry Pageviews… And Counting

We’ve reached a new milestone within the last 24 hours, surpassing the 10 million pageview mark. The site has managed to amass more than 9.5 million users and 10.3 million pageviews since the site’s opening in late June of 2014, according to Google Analytics.

There’s obviously some numerical discrepancies between Google and Jetpack, but both seem to put the site above the 10 million mark when it comes to pageviews. Jetpack is reporting that One Angry Gamer has managed to hit 10,016,293 as of April 18th, 2016.

Google Analytics, on the other hand, appears to report that we’ve managed 10,003,324 session users and a total of 9.5 million unique users. We have managed to hit 10.3 million pageviews over the last two years.

It’s amazing because I was pretty sure Gawker, Vox, and Buzzfeed said that #GamerGate and those asking for better ethics in journalism it was about 30 white guys in their mothers’ basements. They were about 9,594,530 users off.

Also, the claim that #GamerGate is a bunch of 15-year-olds is way off the mark. Even if someone considered this as a “Pro-GG” website, a majority of the direct audience is between 25 and 34 years of age. If we’re counting organic traffic from social media, Google, Bing, Yahoo and Tumblr, then the stats skew 18 through 24. But that’s even assuming everyone comes here for #GamerGate news… in reality they come here for all sorts of news about all sorts of tech, digital media, and video game related topics.

Additionally, around 8% of the site’s direct viewership happens to be females. The site’s stats look the same when accounting for overall viewership as well, but with the addition of organic traffic the number of female visitors go up by 0.6%. The direct viewership is in the blue while the overall user base is in the orange.

We also find that most of the direct viewership for One Angry Gamer has a large affinity for video games (no shocker there). What some might find surprising is that the direct viewership also likes TV, tech and movies just as much.

When accounting for all user sessions, the stats are largely the same. Interestingly enough, people who prefer news and avid readers are higher up as part of our direct traffic than those coming in from other sites and search engines.

Essentially, our readers make sure they’re very up-to-date on the facts, so it means our readers ensure that we’re not misreporting anything.

Who watches the watchers? The readers do.

Now one thing I think is kind of funny when it comes to comments made off-site, is that various people against #GamerGate don’t like the Amazon ads on the site. Just to give a bit of insight into the stats on that, you can see what the most clicked Amazon item is and what the least clicked Amazon item is.

That translates into this…

And the least clicked on item… as listed below…

Translates into this…

Yes, so while people can complain about the Amazon ads, the reality is that people like certain things more than others. Capitalism for the win.

Most importantly, though, none of this would be possible without the readers, the sharers, the commenters, the tweeters, the Redditors and the channers. So for everyone who continues to contribute to the growth of the site. Thank you!

  1. Congratulations.
    Good site, good content, worth checking.
    Proud to be one of those readers.

    Also I’m guilty of clicking that amazon fig add a few times lol, the ass caught my attention.
    It had to be checked in more detail.

  2. Congrats.
    I actually collect figures so I clicked on it myself as well think it was a Lineage 2 dark elf figure. And yeah she does have a really nice ass.
    Now I did always wonder. What is the mask from? Lucha Libre?

    1. Some of the masks apparently were quite popular… I think it was the MGR Revengeance mask that was actually one of the top items as well.

      And yeah, apparently there are a lot of people who collect figures. I was kind of shocked that more people buy figures than video games through this site. I had no idea.

      1. I actually meant the red mask at the top of the site and the one in your avatar.
        Figure collecting is kinda addicting. It started with 1. Now I have 3 display cabinets of them. lol
        I did severely cut down on my collecting due to rising prices and lack of space.

      2. Ahahaha… oh that mask. The red mask is Deathstroke’s mask. It’s part of some Batman Arkham (Origins?) mask collection.

  3. Got linked to here by mod over at hotgas.net Myself a few of us over there are big GPCMR types, and like to post about the idiocy of the anti-GG narrative.

    Anyway, glad I found this place. Congrats on the numbers.

  4. Grats, keep on rustlng those Jimmies. Although, modesty precludes you from saying, let me thank you for the important part you are playing here and beyond.
