GA has screen-capped 2 weeks of Petrosino's "Recent Pageviews" counter starting on December 28 and ending today.
Because Petro's "Education Blog" and Grafix Avenger are both on the same platform (Google) which means we both can generate traffic stats from Google.
Translation: GA can read a Google-generated graph.
Hence, GA was astounded by the BLOATED "web traffic" graph Petrosino posted on December 28. Petro's graph depicts (approximately) 1,750 - 6,000 page views PER DAY for the month of November.
Could it be true that his shitty blog gets thousands of page views per day?
GA decided to prove whether his claims (and his graph) are a fraud.
So for the past 2 weeks, GA has recorded ACTUAL page views for the Texas Truth Twister's "Education Blog." RESULT: they are less than 1/10th of the traffic he claimed for November.
Further, 1600x magnification of Petrosino's graph in PhotoShop shows the numbers on the "y-axis" were ALTERED. The text size does not match the Google generated text. Petrosino's text is larger. Also, the background of Petro's graph is "dirty" (stray pixels) which indicates the graph was printed and scanned.
Take a look!
Here is the graph Petrosino posted, alleging voluminous daily traffic for the (4) weeks in November. Google generated the graph; examination in Photoshop indicates the "y axis" numbers "3,500" and "7,000" are FAKE.
|What a bullshitter!|
The following graph represents (2) weeks of ACTUAL daily traffic numbers taken from Petrosino's
Page View counter.
Note, the 815 hits in one day was an anomaly.
Petrosino's average DAILY traffic for the 2 weeks GA recorded was 273 page views/ day.
GA thought his daily traffic would have been lower; maybe a few dozen visits. Mostly himself, refreshing the page.
So... why would Petrosino want to attract attention by wildly conflating his actual traffic AND faking a Google-generated graph? Oh yeah, he faked it.
Can you see the fakery with your naked eye?
See below- Petrosino's "faked" graph on top, GA's UNTAMPERED graph on the bottom ( I changed the background color to black).
Compare the two. Note:
- Petrosino's "x" and "y" axis text does not match in size- Google uses 10 pixel high text for both.
- Petrosino's y-axis numbers are 13 pixels high
- Petrosino's x-axis text is 10 pixels high
- Petrosino appears to have tampered with the y-axis text
- Petrosino's x-axis text appears authentic
|Note ALL text on GA's authentic graph is the SAME SIZE|

GA could show you the "dirty pixels" difference, but I believe I have made my point... which is....
