Why have PewSitter’s daily reads jumped all of a sudden?  They were hovering around 14,000 mid week, but they’ve practically tripled since September 20th:

 

Daily reads up over 40,000?

PewSitter’s monthly reads were about 420,000.  Annual reads were around 6.2 million, yet they’ve increased 200k in one week.  At this rate they’ll have over 15 million annual reads this year.   They are really, really getting popular!

It’s even more implausible when you consider the sloping trend in their other reports:

pewsitter-stats-sep-2016

In fact, Quantcast statistics show no upward change at all.

True, Quantcast doesn’t measure the auto-refresh function, which is still every ten minutes, but 9,700 is much less than 41,000.  So what’s up with their apparently inflated front page reads?

Is it that manufactured Francis Effect?
