Speaking of Research is getting its message out. The last few months have seen a huge surge in the number of readers of our blog. Alexa Rankings now puts us as the highest ranking dedicated pro-animal-research website. We put this success down to a number of things:
2. You – Linking to our posts – from your websites, your blogs, and the websites of the research facilities you work for.
3. You – Writing our posts – there has been a huge rise in guest posts on our blog. From researchers, primatologists, and other advocates for vital biomedical research.
Thank you; your support has been vital to our recent success. Nonetheless, the challenge is great.
Speaking of Research’s Alexa rank is #2,641,005 (whereas, say, Google is #1 as the most visited website). This may be the highest of the pro-research websites, but it pales in comparison to the traffic from websites who fight against medical research using animals.
PETA – #9,144
HSUS – #41,531
Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine – #94,068
Animal Liberation Front – #303,564
Animal Liberation Press Office – #985,313
So, in order to put right the misinformation propagated by many of the above websites, we ask for more from our readers. We challenge you to:
2. To link to our post from your blog, or for the researchers among you, to make sure your institution has a link to us.
3. Write a guest post – “Why you support medical research on animals”. It needn’t be long; it would be great to just have a few responses we could string together into a new post.
We’re doing our part – are you doing yours?
