If you go to Springer on the Radio you'll see the sitemeter icon, which looks somewhat like the icon at the end of the right navigation bar here. Clicking that, you'll see that Springer is currently getting an average of just 1004 visits per day to that site. Bear in mind that sitemeter appears to be located on each page of his site. Needless to say, that's an incredibly low amount of traffic for someone who is a household name and has his own radio show.
If you look at the referring sites, you'll see that he has backlinks from his other sites, from AAR's site, from station sites, etc. etc. However, what you'll not see is a lot of search engine traffic. This is despite his radio site showing up as #4 behind his other sites when you search for his name.
In fact, overture shows 35,000 searches for his name in April. However, just 200 were for 'jerry springer radio'.
I've previously joked about that site getting such low traffic because his audience only has access to the internet at public libraries and other facilities. However, that doesn't appear to be that far off. Very few people seem to be interested in his new career, and it doesn't look like his earlier audiences are transferring over to the new and thoughtful Jerry.
