Top 25 Websites helping Indy Media like Whiteout Press
By Mark Wachtler
August 31, 2015. Chicago. (ONN) Four years ago, Whiteout Press was just an idea and a web page with little content and no traffic. Today, our humble one-man news outlet is the 846th most popular news site in the world. How did we get there? Lots of grassroots self-promotion and most importantly, our friends. We were curious which websites link to Whiteout Press the most and thought you might be too. Here are the top 25 sites that promote Whiteout Press and other independent publishers.

For our fellow grassroots organizations and news sites curious to see how their websites rank among all the internet pages in cyberspace, visit Ranking.com. According to their data, Whiteout Press is the 104,728th most visited website on Earth. And as we mentioned, we’re 846th in the global ‘news’ category. The vast majority of that traffic is due to our friends linking to our content on their own websites. To view our full list of friends, visit the Whiteout Press Friends Page.
But while good intentions and moral support are invaluable, actual web traffic is just as important. We’d like to officially and publicly thank the following websites for promoting Whiteout Press articles and linking to us on their websites more than anyone else.
