So how many people follow Stanford and Chiappalone on the Internet?
A check of the website Compete reveals that Stanford’s xeeatwelve.com site gets on average about 2000 unique visitors per month from the US, and Chiappalone’s jchiappalone.com gets about 750 per month. In the last month, figures are 3200 and 450 respectively.
A comparison between the two sites of unique visitor count, over the last year is shown below (US only).
Based on this data, clearly Stanford has a larger Internet following, and it appears the recent trend is decline in following of Chiappalone, and the opposite for Stanford.
In terms of absolute size, if Internet following is seen to be a rough indicator of total size of the movement (at least of serious followers), then the Stanford movement of 2000 people would be considered small, not large, and certainly not huge. Although this is only in the US, but that may make up the vast majority of her following.
Relative to other internet sites in the US, based on unique visitors, Stanford’s is ranked #432,306, and Chiappalone’s, #676,006.
