White House Dossier Ranked 7th by Technorati

by Keith Koffler on August 15, 2013, 6:33 pm

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.

Have look-see!

Nice, right?

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:

1. Mediaite
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
9. ZeroHedge
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.

Good for you Keith, great job.

Brenda August 15, 2013 at 6:51 pm

Congrats Keith.

Sadie August 15, 2013 at 6:52 pm

Technorati may have you ranked at 7 ….

This reader has you at No. 1 everyday.

Bob Baldwin August 15, 2013 at 7:07 pm

congrats on the Ranking .
personally I think you are the best .
not to worry I am sure OBOZO thinks you are #1 on his list lol

SWFL August 15, 2013 at 10:10 pm

Also #1 in my book! Congratulations Keith!

CAR August 15, 2013 at 10:14 pm

A daily must-read. Thanks and congrats!

Julie Brueckheimer August 15, 2013 at 6:57 pm

Congratulations, but there’s no way you should be ranked behind the Huffington Post, CNN or the Daily Kos. You shouldn’t be behind the Blaze either as Glen Beck gets a little too tabloidy (a word I invented) at times. For my taste at least. It must be just a matter of hits because on content you have it all over them.

Also I like how you keep it civil here. That’s very important to me.

Melvin August 15, 2013 at 9:51 pm

Agreed Julie.

Zerohedge is schock also. much more sensible…

Star August 15, 2013 at 6:59 pm

How do they measure influence?

DeniseVB August 15, 2013 at 7:00 pm

On the Top 100 list you beat the White blog by 9 !

Way to Go!!!! Congrats Keith !

lc southern August 15, 2013 at 7:10 pm

Congratulations Keith! Your articles are the reason we keep coming back everyday!

Playrighter August 15, 2013 at 7:24 pm

Kudos, Keith

Shall we expect a White House proclamation soon? (You can tell them you were a fan of Larry Czonka.)

Unlike Czonka, you — Keith — didn’t need to be retrained to lead with your shoulder instead of your head. You do just fine leading with your head — and your heart.

How about a petition for a WH visit for the Memphis Southmen (for which Czonka briefly played)? Obama loves him some Memphis.

Robin H August 15, 2013 at 9:17 pm

Not a proclamation, maybe an audit?

Scott August 15, 2013 at 7:30 pm

Congratulations! My guess if blogs were ranked for quality of content, insight, and the “real story” behind the headlines, your blog would be #1. The others, for the most part, seem to have little original thinking and don’t address complex issues very effectively.

Nice job. We’re proud of ya.

RMF August 15, 2013 at 7:44 pm

Congrats Keith; richly deserved! I love reading WHD, and sending it to my friends and family. Everyone loves it!

rawheadrex August 15, 2013 at 7:45 pm

We are in launch mode, Mr.Koffler! The sky is unlimited and your trajectory is clear! 7 and counting!

sportinlife10 August 15, 2013 at 7:58 pm

Major HAH!
I do think your generosity with commenters (sometimes a cranky lot) makes a difference. I’m not meaning to take credit here for your considerable talents/moxie – oh WTF, maybe I will.
Drones over your house/office/basement computer yet?
It’s an achievement you absolutely deserve. We are so proud of you. And proud to have backed a winner.

srdem65 August 15, 2013 at 8:01 pm

Congrats! Your insightful and balanced opinions make this a great place to visit and learn.

Your faithful readers are proud to have played supporting roles. Congratulations!

Martha Trowbridge August 15, 2013 at 8:32 pm

How wonderful, Keith. Congratulations.

Congratulations! That’s why we all show up every day!

Girly1 August 15, 2013 at 9:25 pm

APPLAUSE!!!! Well done, Keith! A day without WHD is like a day without sunshine. You are a national treasure.

Not Nabob the Knothead August 15, 2013 at 9:28 pm

Right on, right on, right on.
Keith Koffler 2020, a man with vision..
Congrats to one of the hardest workers for the truth..

rulierose August 15, 2013 at 9:55 pm

Linda Stewart August 15, 2013 at 10:09 pm

WOW congratulations!! This site is my favorite for stalking the King:)

patty watson August 15, 2013 at 10:24 pm

fine work my man…..pace yourself, there’s a lot coming down the pike in the next year or so and we need your mind working at top speed….git er done!

A.J. August 15, 2013 at 10:29 pm

Congratulations Keith,

I’ll be 63 on Saturday so it should come as no surprise that I am not exactly sure what a “BLOG” is. But that doesn’t prevent me from knowing that this website is something special. You even go out of your way to point out when Obama does something OK or better. (Jumping Jehosaphat, that must be hard (make that difficult, my wife says do NOT say hard unless I really mean it) to find sometimes!!!

Nina Murphy August 15, 2013 at 10:37 pm

You’re welcome; you and your readers have colored my political thinking for quite some time.

Bonnie August 15, 2013 at 10:44 pm

Congratulations Keith. You create and communicate like few others. Your faithful readers and contributors also should be commended. It is a group effort and the group makes the reading a great learning experience. This is the best political meet-up in the world. Keep it up Keith for all of our frustrated selves who really care about America.

DMcG August 15, 2013 at 10:51 pm

Congrats, Keith. I wish more in your profession had the guts and integrity you exhibit every day.

Susan August 15, 2013 at 10:58 pm

You are too humble, Keith. Your blog wouldn’t be the success it is without your honesty, integrity, and witty satire. Congratulations!

Mandy Manners August 15, 2013 at 11:26 pm


Aileen August 16, 2013 at 12:04 am

Congratulations! You have earned this distinction.

AZ Granny August 16, 2013 at 2:18 am

Congrats, Keith! Thanks for all you do.

gracepmc August 16, 2013 at 2:26 am

Congratulations Keith. Well done and well deserved.

And kudos to the readers/commenters. You guys are great.

How does this affect our group ranking on the Re-Education list?

Island Girl August 16, 2013 at 2:43 am

The truth always wins in end. Great, knowledgeable commenters makes my day..every day.
Big Aloha Keith and followers.

MikeC August 16, 2013 at 6:02 am

sometimes good quality actually DOES get recognized.
Been a follower for a long time, and am glad to see you get some recognition.
It will probably only keep growing.
Look out Matt Drudge! (heh heh)

MarjoJimbo August 16, 2013 at 6:58 am

Congratulations! You are #1 in my view.

nlynch August 16, 2013 at 8:28 am

So exciting!
Hard work and telling us the truth is paying off!
Keep at it!

Danceswithtruth August 16, 2013 at 8:47 am

Was so glad the day I “stumbled” upon WHD. An excellent site filled with thought provoking and factual data. You have done a marvelous job in your reporting.

Those that read and comment here are now like family. We share the same basic philosophy, and stand ready to defend this great land (from all threats). I click on the link to WHD at the same time I reach for my cup of coffee in the morning. A great combination; energy and truth.

One thing though, I doubt you’ll be called on anytime soon to ask questions (by either the barker or the whiner).

Geoff Caldwell August 16, 2013 at 9:01 am

CONGRATS. Both for your blog and for remaining human and approachable when so many of the rest of your profession prefer to be abject morons.

JLM August 16, 2013 at 9:06 am

Congratulations Keith! You have fantastic articles, Keep it up!

Jeff August 16, 2013 at 9:22 am

Congratulations on a job WELL done!!!!!!!!

Thanks for all the hard work and dedication to sharing the truth and doing everything possible to hold this hoodlum of an administration accountable…….

CiscoKid August 16, 2013 at 9:26 am

Coffee, bagel and WHD to start my day.
A hearty congratulations Mr. Koffler! Well done sir.

AFVet August 16, 2013 at 10:20 am

I can’t remember how I found this site, but I sure am glad I did.
Daily visits.

Star August 16, 2013 at 10:47 am

Yes, this is definitely one of my daily stations of the cross–many times a day. Thanks for giving us a home.

Star August 16, 2013 at 10:49 am

PS I know I am a PITA with my crabby little notes on profanity and grossness, but I do think those, even acronymized, detract from credibility–and they get so old.

AFVet August 16, 2013 at 12:05 pm

Are you referring to me ?

Star August 16, 2013 at 12:39 pm

Actually no. You always have something interesting to say, sans crass language. I prefer not to name pseudonyms… The people who do it do it deliberately…Often their comments are just crude mumblings, no new info. I use “bad” expressions in real life–verbally–on occasion. But when they are all around me in written form, it makes me think I am wasting my time at a site. If I went to a cocktail party and everyone was spitting out f-bombs and crude insults, I would think it was pretty low-rent, too.

AFVet August 16, 2013 at 1:20 pm

Thank you for the response Star.

aunty M August 16, 2013 at 2:01 pm

I am not surprised, Keith. Your blog is one of the first things I read
when I go to my PC. Congratulations.

Keith Koffler August 16, 2013 at 2:35 pm

Thank you all so much for these comments. It’s especially flattering coming from all of you because I know you are direct and honest in your opinions, whether you agree with me or not. I learn from all of you and, no kidding, many people express to me how much they enjoy the comments. So thanks for your help with this. I really do have the best readers anywhere.


Not Nabob the Knothead August 16, 2013 at 6:35 pm

You are welcome sir.

larry wooden August 17, 2013 at 9:24 am

An honest, plainspoken, informative blog at whitehousedossier. I’m surprised you aren’t ranked even higher Keith!

Star August 17, 2013 at 12:39 pm

I never heard of some of those sites…I do go to Newsbusters sometimes.
