The Nextbigfuture website is nearing 59 million pageviews and 150 million views on Google Plus.
Some have in comments have asked about the topic selection of Nextbigfuture.
The articles that have generated the most traffic and revenue are the aircraft carrier, fighter planes, bombers, submarines, tanks, laser and railgun articles. Also, occasionally some articles like Emdrive.
Some have accused this site of being a paid promoter of China. This kind of accusation shows a kind of naive cluelessness.
China is an $11 trillion GDP country. The leadership does not care world public opinion and only cares about their own people if there is an actual risk of 1911 style uprisings.
Companies and countries do not pay for a lot of blogger articles to sway opinion. Some companies pay for ad campaigns, but that is generally click based and the revenue is strongly driven by the traffic. There are also some tiny new companies with new products who might actually play for positive blog articles. However, this is a tiny fraction of the ad money. If the company is so small that they are looking for blog coverage then they are also close to just begging for free article coverage. This would mean no money.
China just uses directly state controlled media.
The top traffic China sites are Sina and Xinhau and the product sites. A top China traffic site needs to be in chinese language and mobile focused. It also should probably WeChat focused.
WeChat is a mobile text and voice messaging communication service developed by Tencent in China, first released in January 2011. It is the largest standalone messaging app by monthly active users. As of August 2014, WeChat has 438 million active users; with 70 million outside of China.
