You're welcome, massadvj! Thanks for the stats. I don't understand it all, but I can tell you what I do.
As you know, I may use some of your vids as an attachment prior to posting them directly.
I post the toons directly at 4 sites (where the total views daily is bet. ~1500 & 2100): here, The Right Reasons, QubeTV & The Fort2. I notice that TheFort2 isn't in your list so they might be some of the Unknowns. I do not post anything at Moonbattery. I post HTML code to some Usenet newsgroups where they have 2 choices: they could click on individual links (would be the blip link) or open the code in a browser window to view the entire thread; don't know if those would be in blip or unknown counts. I send out a daily link (The Right Reasons or GOP Briefing Room) to an e-mail list; this is the same link that I post daily to FR. Some sites [Six Meat Buffet, DBKP (Death By 1000 Papercuts), etc.] also post that daily link. There are other sites that link to my toons subforum here &/or at The Right Reasons. That's pretty much all that I'm aware of...
Very interesting. Thanks for the information. You are right that a lot of the blip.tv views are from links to toons. I did not consider that.
I guess all we can do is keep yelling into every megaphone we can find and hope people find us. When we get closer to the general election, I will post every video in the archive on You Tube, which will result in much more viewership. For now, it's a question of building up a solid foundation for viral sneak attacks against the socialist empire. So long as we keep growing, I am encouraged.
One other thing. The number of views is tied to advertising revenues (we made a total of $1.76 in ad revenues last month from views of older vids. New vids don't have ads attached to them. The ad revenues built up since we started are up to a whopping $4.26).
It seems likely to me that blip fudges the viewership number downward to avoid having to pay as much in ad expense. I can't prove that, of course, but I suspect it. Also, these are "unique" views, so if the same viewer sees a video twice, or watches more than one video from the same computer, it only counts as one. We have far more total views than the numbers suggest.
