Cindy Sheehan is the most searched for term on www.technorati.com/

Measured by Alexa.com, www.meetwithcindy.org yesterday was ranked 16,800 and was reaching over 100 per million users. This created a graph shooting almost straight up, because the site was created Sunday night. In fact, the site has been reduced to one page to try to handle the traffic surge, and we've been unable for the past 24 hours to update it with a page with better info, because of the load on the servers. The update, when we manage it, will include a link to Cindy Sheehan information on www.afterdowningstreet.org, which will then be hit hard.

Largely thanks to Cindy, www.afterdowningstreet.org is ranked 69,984, reaching 15 per million users. And www.gsfp.org, the site for Gold Star Families for Peace, is ranked 97,006, reaching 30 per million users.

The largest liberal website, www.moveon.org, generally has traffic at about the level that www.meetwithcindy hit in three days. But MoveOn has also surged during the Cindy phenomenon. Of three huge surges for MoveOn in the past three months, one came when they finally got involved with the Downing Street Memos, and the most recent came when they focused on Cindy Sheehan. Their three month average is now a rank of 14,483 and their rank today is an amazing 2,987.

Now, let's try to get the same level of interest from the people who have even bigger websites (not to mention their much bigger reach through other means) than these: the corporate media! Contact them here:
