Rate of fall levelling-out?

No, not infection levels, readership levels.

Fifth month in a row with falling views and visitor numbers, the Tusker‘s enormous nose bleed may be stemmed as we only lost around 800 visitors between September and October.

I’ve explored the shadow banning notion but with no real findings.

The global reach in October:

And in May.

Spot the differences. A World map game everyone can play.

Oh no, we’ve lost Estonia! And most of West Africa! Go on name those South American ones.

Most popular posts:

Lessons? Mention, in the headline, the National, Brian Taylor or the First Minister. Don’t mention Murdo Fraser:

Murdo Fraser recommends full fiscal dependency because that’s worked well in the past three centuries 1 .

  1. You do fine, John. Us oldies will always be here.
    To attract the young? It used to be revolution, rock music and long hair.
    Now? I have no clue.
    Hopefully now, I will always be old. After many years of contemplation, I have attained that heightened state of awareness (Eh, what did you say? Sorry, I need my glasses).
    The young will have oldness thrust upon them, if they persevere!
    Eat your hearts out, philosophers!

  3. Are previous readers not finding the site because of the description “The Tusker”, even though this is followed with [Talking-up Scotland]?

    Thanks very much for all your work on this site – and thanks also to Tuskers for their contributions.

  5. This is the site for facts and truth
    I sign in using google search then talkingupscotland II
    I find that often there is interference
    My screen on my iPad jumps an inch or two left then right stuttering deleting then freezes
    I know not who is responsible but it’s a new iPad I’ve got so I know it’s not the iPad

  7. Changing the site. Or the name. Could stop some folk from accessing the site.

    ‘The Tusker talking up Scotland’, gets into the site. It’s great. Graphs etc.

    ‘Standing up for Scotland’. Gives a great list of other stuff.
