What’s Bigger Than the Cato Institute, Americans for Tax Reform and AEI?

Posted on | July 30, 2011 | 11 Comments — at least according to The Top 150 Conservative Websites list compiled by Doug Ross, based on Alexa rankings.

We’re at No. 68, ahead of the Web sites of those three think tanks, and closing in on such traffic monsters as (#64), (#60) and (#58). I’m also pleased to see that the list includes such of our blog buddies as Wintery Knight (#150), Sundries Shack (#137), Moe Lane (#135), Legal Insurrection (#99) and The Lonely Conservative (#96).

However, notice that Ace of Spades HQ is included at #28 on the list only as part of the whole universe, an oddity that casts in doubt the accuracy of the rankings, as does the ranking of — including Instapundit — at #16, below Mediaite among others.

Well: Go read the whole thing. If Doug’s gonna go to the trouble of compiling a list like that, the least you can do is read it! (And you might want hit his tip jar while you’re over there.)

    You don’t need a list of top websites.  you only need the right hardware.

    I’m sure one of those buttons is how I got here.

    July 31st, 2011 @ 3:09 am is a much better traffic predictor than Alexa.

    #85 didn’t get the RSM blessing for possible linky love, but we’ll take it and do so proudly.

    Nice work!

    You deserve it – some of the others have great output, but as far as blogging and reporting, you put them to shame.

    You and Smitty should never underestimate how much good you do for your readers.  Your knowledge and honesty are very much appreciated.
