Alex Jones Wins Info War, Site Traffic Soars In August

Despite -- or maybe because of -- being blacklisted from the major social media platforms, traffic to Alex Jones’ spiked in August, according to an analysis of monthly visitor data to major conservative websites released this morning by watchdog The Righting.

Infowars site traffic surged by a third in August vs. July, representing the largest gain of any leading conservative site, according to The Righting President Howard Polskin.

“I think the massive media coverage created enormous brand awareness and drove people there,” Polskin said, adding, “I don't think that it's as dependent on social media as one might think.”

He said September data will be “key” to determining whether Infowars spike is a sustainable trend.
