Perhaps you can explain the ratings, i.e. why is it that the higher the number the lower the rating?
In 10th place is Tkach's "fiefdom" as you style it.I myself would use "THIEFDOM", as these scoundrels,vagabonds and knaves stole without blushing from the often penurious members of Worldwide.And,the still deceived faithful shell out for these rogues.
AW is still "holding its own".
Flurry's Strumpet takes No 3 position,BARING its all."Repant,your end is in sight" might be an appropriate tag for this one.
Ronnie Weinland's Sticky End takes No 5 spot.I wonder how Ronnie got a sticky end? John the Baptist lived on locusts and honey.Perhaps,if Ronnie lives to fulfill his Witless role,he may accidentally sit on the honey pot and thus acquire the sticky end of which you speak.
those with lower ratings examined
No.1 is obviously tops (that's Google), no.2 is second, etc.
The GN is no. 75,502
it would be interesting to see how WCG/GCI compares to other mega-churches ou there, since those are more of a peer group than the COGs are now.
Benny Hinn, Creflo Dollar, Fred Price, Kenneth Hagin, John Hagee, etc...
"Flurry's Trumpet: www.thetrumpet.com - 97 445"
I'd refer to him as Gerald DUI Slurry.
Let me clarify my question - why is Victor Kubik #19 with 491,628
while UCG's The Good News is #1 with only 75,502?
What do the numbers such as UCG's 75,502 represent? Why is the smaller the number the better the rating?
It will be fascinating to see how rapidly Mr. Flurry's Trumpet climbs in the ratings as we get even closer to end time events. Could it reach the top 10?
Richard, this may help:
Alexa orders web sites according to Alexa Traffic they get. That means a site with a rank of 1000 gets more traffic than a site with rank of 1001 according to Alexa, of course.
Alexa Rank is a relative measurement on how popular a web site among the Internet community. Alexa is relative because it depends on the data of Alexa Toolbar users. And also Alexa Toolbar is only for Internet Explorer which means it doesn’t count growing group of Firefox fans or any other browser users. But there are over 10 million Alexa Toolbar users who make it a recognized measurement.
(from: http://www.homebizpal.com/technical/understanding-alexa-rank/ )
(BTW, I'm not sure whether the information regarding it being "only for Internet Explorer" is outdated.)
So, to me, the real question is- how many members does each church have worldwide. I doubt any of them have more than about 10,000. Membership numbers is something that each of these splinter groups keep VERY close to their vests. The Internet (and media in general) can make them appear much bigger than they actually are. Even the WCG with just over 100,000 members was quite small. They didn't do very well compared to other similar religious organizations.
No, the CoG that Armstrong started (and all her daughters) have never really made a dent in this world, contrary to the ravings from their "pastor generals".
