100 Of The Most Popular Political Websites On The Net
Over the last few months here at RWN, my favorite blogs have been ranked, I’ve had other people rank their favorite blogs, and I’ve regularly listed the web pages that send me the most traffic. Today, I thought it might be interesting to see which political websites actually receive the most traffic. So I picked a number of popular political websites from both sides of the ideological spectrum, sprinkled in a generous helping of popular blogs, and then I went to: Alexa.com: and ranked the 50 political websites that I came up with. Do keep in mind that…
1) Every popular political website isn’t included. If anyone was left out, my apologies, it wasn’t intended. But, I had to cut the list off at some point or we would have ended up with a ridiculously large list.
2) Alexa can’t properly read all the: Blog*spot: pages so they all receive the same rank. Because of that, none of them were included.
3) Last but not least, Alexa sometimes cannot distinguish between the main page and secondary page of a website. For example, Alexa gives: Eric Alterman’s blog: the same ranking as: MSNBC: which meant I had to leave out a few blogs of interest that were hosted on much larger pages.
All 50 websites are listed with their Alexa rank following their link. So for example, a “1” would mean the page was the most popular website on the net. A “100,000” would mean the 100,000th most popular page on the net. With that being said, let’s go ahead and take a look at the rankings.
***Update***:: Due to popular demand, I’ve decided add another 50 political websites to the list. This should give a much more complete picture of the most popular political websites out there.
