Google can't tell me and I have little patience. Especially when DiS wiped the first time I wrote this message...
Man alive, is there no respect round here anymore?
or this http://www.alexa.com/topsites/category/Top/Arts/Music/News_and_Media/Magazines_and_E-zines
or this http://trends.google.com/websites?q=drownedinsound.com,+gigwise.com,+thisisfakediy.com,+lineofbestfit.com&sa=N (tho some of those sites are too small to register and also, despite our traffic being higher than its ever been, that shows we're down)
or this http://quantcast.com/drownedinsound.com (tho it's a fair whack out, we get about 20-30k visitors a day)
I always ignore them as they have this shit pop up thing going on, that makes me shut it down at the first opertunity if I clink a link.
But I know couple of peeps at least write for them on these boards and the bits of their's they've linked me to have been on point, so know doubt they are doing something right along with the usualy just repeating what pitchfork/nme say a few days late indie thing.
gigwise is also entertainmentwise and they basically run pretty much every news story (even if it's just re-reporting something from The Sun about Doherty or Amy Winehouse) for google to find. So they end up getting loadsa people via that way. We've never wanted to build a site like that, especially as our content would be lost in re-reporting every bit of gossip. Admittedly we could be doing better with the news but I can only afford staff a few hours a week.
