The 2012 Presidential Election is coming up, and Compete is avidly tracking the flux and flow of traffic online to discern where the digital weight is, and what sites are gaining influence. Below is a ranking of the top ten growing sites for the ‘Politics and History’ category in July. You’ll notice that most don’t lend themselves to a particular candidate, with domains advertising viewpoints or topics over specific people. You’ll also notice that of the top ten, neither Obama or Romeny have any show. Are candidate sites less likely to receive sudden influxes of traffic? This just might be the case.
