Why does the "Top 150" list have 200 entries? Why does the Big Ten have, like, 48 teams?

Update: LibertyNews.com was inadvertently omitted; it would be #77 at a popularity ranking of 114,237. Biff Spackle's annual review will be modified to reflect this egregious error.

Update II: HopenChange Cartoons was also accidentally omitted. It would be #140 at a popularity ranking of 380,906.

Thanks Doug!

I know they are not the most sane of conservatives but Conservapedia.com has Alexa ratings under the top 100.

How is market-ticker.org a conservative website? I read it and I agree with most of it but the author voted for Obama twice. Or maybe he just didn't vote for the R candidate, which is the same thing in my book.

Bing Fischer said...

Traditionalamericanmovement.com has an Alexa rank of 45,988 in the US and you forgot to include us real Conservatives? Really?
But some moderate cites are fine?

Just wondering about your methodology here Doug because it does not seem that your totals are based off US rankings alone but global rankings as well or something else.

Can you clear that up for us please?

TY, Bing

Bing is right, publish your criteria for inclusion on this list. Thank you.

Not quite sure how my website missed the boat (perhaps some name confusion), but I believe that Hope n' Change Cartoons should be at 174 with an Alexa ranking of 71,655.

Mockarena said...

Not sure how we're 56th on http://redflagnews.com/top-100-conservative/ and nowhere to be found on this list. How are you pulling the info?

Mockarena said...

Chicks On The Right has a rank of 60,795 according to Alexa: http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/chicksontheright.com#

How the heck was this top 150 list compiled?

Lauren Lane said...

I didn't see NewsWithViews.com on there and they are doing extremely well in the Alexis rankings and ahead of 60% of your list. Millions of loyal followers. Is this your favorites by any chance or a real review?

Rebecca said...

How about Americaisconservative.blogspot.com?

gdhanson said...

What? No jerry Doyle. Where would he fit in?

the Tunnel Dweller said...

Please consider also the Tunnel Wall at http://tunnelwall.blogspot.com/.
I'm 73 years old and have been blogging here since the 2008 Democrat convention. I've never been as concerned for this nation as now and that includes living through the Red Scare and distant memories of blackouts and air raid sirens during WW2. At least then we knew that enemy could be resisted. Today's enemy is more difficult; more insidious because it is within us. Hence the Lincoln quote at the top of the Tunnel Wall. Please honor the Tunnel Wall by checking it out.
