Advertise on The Vile Plutocrat

The Vile Plutocrat is one of the most informative, entertaining and important online destinations for odious plebeians interested in keeping tabs on the despicable deeds of the entitled class. The Vile Plutocrat is not affiliated with any media outlet, political party, corporation or country. We are a small, self-funded, independently operated blog working hard to do a job we feel absolutely needs to be done. 

We have a world-wide distribution, have been featured in numerous online publications, dozens and dozens and dozens of blogs, and boast a daily readership of 250 - 500 unique visitors per day.

  • Our all-time daily high tipped the scales at over 43,000 hits
  • Our monthly average for 2010: 22,603 hits
  • Average monthly traffic (without spikes): 7000 to 9000 visits

There are other sites out there that cover similar information, but none do it quite as well or comprehensively as we do. As such, The Vile Plutocrat represents a unique opportunity for advertisers to target a segment of the information-seeking market that believes strongly in truth, honesty, a strong middle class and possesses a general contempt for thieving, holier-than-thou plutocrats.
