Capital Chronicle is a niche site with unique hits in the low thousands per week and typically 50%-75% more page loads than that. Its page rank oscillates between 3 and 5.

It was recognised as one of Onalytica's 200 Most Influential Economics Blogs in 2012.

Readership is international (40% US, 35% European Union, 25% Rest of the World) and split roughly 60% private, 30% professional finance and 10% other professional, including a noticeable academic presence.

The site's posts are regularly picked up by the financial press (some clippings are below) although not always for its main style of article: this has been by far the most popular and viral post this year. It has been cited in the WSJ’s MarketBeat, the Financial Times, FT Alphaville, the Daily Telegraph Business Blog, the Guardian’s Market Forces Live blog and even the Sun (if borrowing the Fernandel photo and caption from here counts); and there has been liberal borrowing of the CC Société Générale management flowchart tool.

The Times went so far as to name Capital Chronicle one of the 50 Best Business Blogs which is kind but possibly more indicative of the tight deadlines Times journalists must suffer.
