Top-Ten List

By Sean Carroll | March 28, 2008 4:45 pm

The Truth Laid Bear has an “ecosystem” to rank blogs, using both inbound links and traffic as indicators of popularity. Here’s the top ten as of this afternoon:

Higher Beings

1. Daily Kos: State of the Nation (6587) details
2. Michelle Malkin (4935) details
3. Instapundit.com (4928) details
4. Cosmic Variance (4863) details
5. Tricia’s Musings (4712) details
6. lgf: helping moonbats sleep soundly (3906) details
7. Boing Boing (3762) details
8. Talking Points Memo (3314) details
9. Power Line (3041) details
10. Wanderlust Sha (3027) details

Okay, there seems to be a bug somewhere; we’re not really the fourth-largest blog on the Internets, by any plausible way of counting. Unless they are counting by awesomeness. But then we would have Instapundit and Malkin beat handily.
