Not really, since most of is are repeat visitors, but still good — kudos to Alex and Tyler
Congratulations, have been reading MR since you were at 2 million!
It has now become mainstream, and therefore, uncool
How is that being signalled?
Oh, you know… the cheap Marginal Revolution clothing range and other merchandise… the t-shirt that says “My girlfriend visited MR and all she got me was a lousy theory of ZMP”… Tyler and Alex opening those restaurants last week…
On a more serious note, thanks to Tyler and Alex for the general interestingness they provide and congratulations on the 50 million figure.
Ha! good one. I hear Tyler opened his own restaurant, Bolivian-Romanian fusion, in a strip mall. A sign says “no hot women allowed, unless they are willing to argue loudly.”
Re: general interestingness, I couldn’t agree more.
TC now has dedicated hater blogs.
AT seems to be less subject to vitriol, weirdly.
Not weird at all – Tyler is a much more prominent academic, so even if he is, on average, more agreeable than Professor Tabarrok, his posts are shared to a wider audience, which in turn increases the probability of someone taking substantial umbrage at his remarks.
That, and Tyler (at least from my own impression) engages in more direct debate with other prominent econbloggers like Krugman and DeLong – no matter how agreeable he might be in manner, this is bound to drive animosity (and pageviews).
Never understood the hater blogs. Small-minded and vindictive.
Congrats Tyler and Alex!
Some of us long for the days, five years ago or so, where the comments were as good as the posts.
Bad comments drive out good comments.
A not inconsiderable achievement – many thanks.
Congrats you guys!!
Congratulations on your deserved success.
Congratulations ! Would like to say that the comments are still mostly very good and perhaps speak of Tyler’s and Alex’s ability to attract and maintain a civil community.
Thank you Tyler and Alex for all these years of inspiration!
I don’t understand.
Wow a very small part of visitor must comment.
MR is the first website I visit, every morning, and has been for at least seven years (I remember this because I first started reading MR in my previous job, which I left in 2005).
are these 50 million visitors fungible?
Well, first, congratulations! Who would have thought that an econ blog would receive so many visitors? It’s quite remarkable actually.
Would it be impertinent to ask how many visited in the most recent month?
Here’s my guess:
50 m over lifetime, figure 10 million in past year, 750,000 per month, 25,000 per day, 14,000 unique visitors per day. That is an amazing number, actually, for a econo-culinary blog.
Maybe there are actually only 500 of us, that have visited 1000 times from a hundred different places each – but you’ve still managed to make nearly every visit worthwhile!
Thank you for being there.
To be fair, 49M of those were just me hitting F5.
Tyler and Alex – Congratulations to you both. I have been an almost daily visitor for at least the last 5 years. Not sure exactly when you started. My favorite blog
yes thanks guys.
not to toot my own horn, but my blog is up to 5 unique visitors!
