100 Of The Most Popular Political Websites On The Net
100 Of The Most Popular Political Websites On The Net: I decided to update the “50 most popular political websites on the net” article. There are now a hundred websites listed and the article does a pretty decent job of listing the major political sites on the net with the exception of the newspapers and the big mainstream sites like ABC, NBC, CNN, etc.
***Update***: This article that I put together on a lark has so far drawn links from Andrew Sullivan, The Corner, and Lucianne. Of course, The Corner was questioning how accurate Alexa is and the Lucianne staff immediately closed the thread because they consider blogs as a whole to be unworthy of links (don’t even get me started on that).
I’ve also had a couple of people point out that I missed LewRockwell.com which would have come in at #7 on the list, with an Alexa ranking of 2,403.
Last but not least, Ryan Lizza from the The New Republic wrote to say that Alexa counts www.thenewrepublic.com (20,867) & www.tnr.com (27,347) as separate web pages despite the fact that they point to the same place. If Alexa properly combined those two urls, I’m sure the New Republic would rank significantly higher.
***Update #2***: The Ludwig von Mises Institute sent me an email to point out that they’re ranked 5,757. If we add in LewRockwell.com as well, that would put them in the #18 slot.
***Update #3***: Some other websites have written to say they should have been included. City Journal pointed out their rank of 57,664 which would have put them in the #65 slot in the original article. The Progressive Review slides in at 96,328 which would have left them at #80 on the original list. Politics 1 also should have been listed. They come in at 49,313 which means they deserved to be ranked #61 in the original article.
