The Conservative 100: Most Popular Conservative Websites


Ratings #2, February 14, 2010
DBKP's bi-weekly rating of the Most Popular 100 Conservative sites on the web, the Conservative 100.
The ratings are based on Alexa traffic rankings 3-month average.

As always, if we missed anyone, drop us a line in the comments with your site URL; we'll include in the next ratings around the 1st of March. The Alexa rankings were largely taken from February 13, 2010 and include several from January 14, 2010.

The Top 100 Politically Popular Conservative list contains all sites of interest to conservatives or with a conservative point of view. Several Libertarian sites are also included, such as Reason and Freedom's Phoenix.

The Top Five remain unchanged from two weeks ago. The number one slot is held by Fox News, followed by the Wall Street Journal's Opinion page and the Drudge Report. Two "combination sites", Hollywood and World Net Daily/Michael Savage round out the Top Five.

DBKP will release our DBKP Politically Popular Top 100 Conservative Blogs next week.

* #19 - 9,111 Confederate Yankee, Ace of Spades HQ, and Jawa Report, as well as other blogs all combine for the same rating. Alexa treats these sites as one in its traffic rankings. Because these are all popular conservative sites, we'll leave it like this with the note until Alexa distinguishes between them.

** #26 -The same holds true for First Things, The Anchoress, Gateway Pundit, Spengler, Secondhand Smoke, Evangel and Postmodern Conservative are all at First Things. All the above sites register an aggregate total like the sites. Until Alexa distinguishes between the blogs, they'll be ranked in the aggregate with this note.

# Michael Savage is part of World Net Daily and their traffic combine to form one total.

# Instapundit is part of the Pajamas Media site and both combine for the one total.

# Don Surber is part of the Charleston Daily Mail site and both combine for the one total.

# Big Hollywood is part of the site and both combine for the one total.

## Big Journalism, the Daily Caller and Blogs Lucianne Loves are all less than 3 months old, so their ratings are not nearly as high as they will be after they have all gotten a full three months under their belts. These three sites continue to experience quick jumps up the ladder.

Eight new sites break into the Top 100 this rating, lead by Red County at #71.

We got the idea of a regular ratings from several sources while looking for this information several weeks ago: John Hawkins' Right Wing News The Top 40 Conservative Blogs For 2009 (Version 1.0) from March 2009 and a later 2.0 version in June 2009; Conservatism Today's 24 Best Conservative Blogs, August 2008; and, Top 133 Conservative Blogs, November 2009. Also, here's a list of the UK's Top 100 Conservative Blogs. And one more: (UK) Top 100 Conservative Blogs.

The Conservative 100 will be updated approximately every two weeks.
