DefendDrew.com website traffic stats – 2 million hits in 2 days?
December 15th, 2007 by estreet

The Defend Drew Peterson website, defenddrew.com, was set up to get donations for Drew’s legal defense – Joel Brodsky. He has not yet been charged or named a suspect in his 3rd wife’s death or 4th wife’s disappearance. But the site was overwhelmed with 1/2 million hits in 4 or 5 hours. Perhaps they should distribute the traffic across several websites:

Drew Peterson website domain names PayJoel.com, PayJoelBrodsky.com

Chicago radio personality Steve Dahl offered these improvements:

  • For a $10 donation to Drew, you will receive a commemorative bullet hole shaped magnet. – Stacy said Drew fired a shot in their home, Drew said she fired it from her Glock.
  • For $25, you get a “Come Back, Stacy” boomerang.

They shut down the site within 48 hours and released this:
“The Drew Peterson Legal Defense Fund has met its short term goal, so we are shutting down the web site. Peterson thanks the public for their generous response to his request for support. If additional support is needed in the future we may reestablish the web site.”

Alexa Traffic stats for DefendDrew.com show they peaked at #21,000 in worldwide website traffic rank. eBay is #20 for comparison. However, Alexa does a 3 day average on their stats. This pulls down 1 day spikes in traffic by 2/3. Accounting for this, I guestimate the site actually peaked around top #10,000 on Dec 12. Anything above #100,000 is pretty impressive, especially when the site is open for just 2 days.

I did a rough calculation based on my own Alexa relative stats and actual quantitative Statcounter stats. I come up with 100,000 hits to defenddrew.com on Dec. 12, not 1,000,000. Anyone else have any stats on this site’s traffic?

Drew peterson is a pig who deserves to fry and anyone supporting him should be tried for accessory to murder.

This man is a joke! He is so guilty and the crap that he pulls on national TV to make himself shine is pathetic beyond words. I feel so sorry for those kids and what he is doing to them. The truth will come out and then let’s see how much he wants to be in the public eye! Drew Peterson is a PIG and is fooling noone but himself!
