White House Dossier Wednesday was ranked seventh on the Technorati list of most influential U.S. political blogs, trailing only a handful of major players like The Huffington Post, the CNN Political Ticker, and the Daily Kos.
Technorati ranks blogs by what it calls “authority,” a measure of influence calculated by links from other blogs; the way the blog is being categorized by others; and “other associated data” to figure out a a site’s “standing & influence in the blogosphere.”
So we were seventh – yes, I’m including you, my readers, who make this possible – among the 8,335 U.S. political blogs Technorati ranks.
Here were the top ten Wednesday:
2. CNN Political Ticker
3. The Huffington Post
4. The Blaze
5. Daily Kos
6. Heritage’s The Foundry
7. White House Dossier
8. Foreign Policy’s The Cable
10. Right Wing Watch
Okay, today we’re eighth, even though we gained more “authority.” But who’s counting today?
White House Dossier was also 70th on the Technorati Top 100 Overall list, out of a grand total of 1,331,691 blogs measured.
I would note that Technorati does not measure page views or unique visitors. Other U.S. political blogs not in Technorati’s top ten have more of those than White House Dossier. But right now, they don’t have more influence.
Thanks to all of you for your readership and support. You are making this blog the success that it is.
