Notes from Underground - Do you kiss your mother with that mouth?

Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours. I wrote this article myself, and it expresses my own opinions. I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from ShareProphets). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article.

Good God, what is it that really interests you, dear ShareProphets reader? Look at these topics: Homophobic phrasing, alleged David Lenigas smears, ShareSoc's Roger Lawson talking bollocks, and pewter-circle law firm Pinsent Masons partner urging Sefton to smear Tom and Brokerman Dan are all making the top ten. Why aren't you readin Don't Short The Big Short. This Film Is A Master Class in How Top Traders Work.? That's a good piece of financial commentary.

Or some good journalism like When is a "result of GM" not a result of GM? 

Should we get Jeremy Kyle involved? Maybe give Katie Price a column on the Filthy Forty? To quote Tom, "I give up."

In the past seven days, 43,387 unique readers read 79,835 pages on ShareProphets. The circulation of the Investors Chronicle is c30,000. Shares is less than half of that. To our critics who think we do not count, we say think again.

Our top 10 most-read stories this week were:

  1. Paul Scott complains about about homophobia on ShareProphets
  2. David Lenigas ramps up the smears and threats: Tom Winnifrith I shall not be silenced
  3. Tom Winnifrith Bearcast 3rd April - The Looting Machine & another AIM Board who need to go to prison
  4. Tom Winnifrith Bearcast 5 April: Roger Lawson are you still talking cock on blinkx? Apologise you tool
  5. 22 mistakes all investors in shares must avoid (Don't be a Bulletin Board Moron) - new Tom Winnifrith book
  6. David Lenigas shares pain of shareholders in LGO, Cuba, Afriag etc - Monaco yacht only 36 foot caption contest
  7. Tom Winnifrith Bearcast 6 April - Taihua, Solo, Strat Aero & the clown Lenigas
  8. So David Cameron finally Comes Clean on the Panama Papers and tax - Oh no he doesn't
  9. Proof that Pinsent Masons Partner Russell Booker urged Sefton Resources to make fraudulent BB smear postings - leaked email emerges
  10. Tom Winnifrith Bearcast 7 April - it is like passing your frigging driving test
As usual, I am not including the magazine or the Bulletin Board Moron stories as they make the list week after week and this bores me.

    What your figures suggest is unique readers read an average of less than 2 articles a week. Given that I read over 70% of the articles published each week and judging by the people who comment on multiple articles a lot of others do too, I suspect either your unique readers figure is way too high or your articles read figure is too low. The former seems more likely. I do often access the same article multiple times to read new comments.

    As far as analytical quality vs readership is concerned, look at the readership of The Sun vs the FT Those writers who get fewer reads and fewer comments should not think they are doing a worse job and most certainly must not try to emulate Tom’s style to court popularity or go after subjects that they know will get more people interested. What is different about SP is it does write about things only a few people care about and it does have a variety of writers with a variety of styles and view points. Its biggest strength is actually the number of people who decry it and absolutely hate it when an SP article gets posted on their BB and come out with pizza boy / Rivington type comments, because they can’t actually refute the substance,

    In short metrics of how much SP is hated are a far better indicator of the true effect it is having than the readership metrics you present each week.
