Conservative Blogs 100: Ratings 2, February 21, 2010

Ratings #2
February 1-21, 2010

2010's 2nd monthly ratings of the Most Popular 100 Conservative blogs on the web, the Conservative Blogs 100.

The ratings are based on Alexa traffic rankings 3-month average. All changes are calculated from last Conservative Blogs 100 listing.

If we missed anyone, drop us a line in the comments with your site URL; we'll include in the next ratings, March 21. The Alexa rankings were largely taken from Feb 20, 2010 and include several from February 21, 2010. The Conservative Blogs 100 will normally be released the third Sunday of each month.

The list includes conservative and libertrarian blogs of interest.
These differs from the Conservative 100, in that it doesn't contain the sites of large newspapers, news channels magazines or TV/radio personalities. The sites that appear on the Conservative Blogs 100 are primarily web-based entities.

The number one slot is held by The Drudge Report, followed Hollywood and World Net Daily (even though WND hosts radio talker, Michael Savage, on its site).

The top five is rounded out by Hot Air and Free Republic.

22 new blogs hit the list this period, led by Canada Free Press, NewsReal and Life News. Also several made it on for the first time on any of DBKP Top 100 lists, including Chris Muir's popular cartoon, Day By Day, Jill Stanek and Angry White Dude.

Additional notes after the ratings list.

Obama Cousin Says Stop ObamaCare!

Your Ad Here

"Milton R. Wolf, M.D.
A physician and proud defender of liberty.

It's true, I am President Barack Obama's cousin (second cousin to be exact). That makes me exactly 12% pure hope and I'd like to offer you some."

Howling wolf


Learned the following info the other day and found it was interesting. Do readers agree?

Dr. Milton Wolf was moved to start blogging to highlight his opposition to ObamaCare. Dr. Wolf wouldn't be the first physician to oppose Obama's attempted take-over of the U.S. health care system. But he would be the first physician in Obama's family to do so.

You see, Dr. Wolf is Barack Obama's cousin. But we'll let Dr. Wolf explain.

From a recent email:

I am indeed Barack Obama’s cousin (mother’s side, the McCurry family as he described in ‘Dreams From My Father’).

Recently I launched my own conservative/libertarian blog website called The Wolf Files. I am a practicing physician and it was my opposition to ObamaCare that got me off the sideline but wherever liberty needs defending, I’ll be there. A month later, it’s been a lot of fun.

I hope you’ll check it out and perhaps even share it with your readers.

The Wolf Files

What about the time? The Wolf Files are up-to-date, with an Instapundit-type rapid-fire-links-with-commentary format.

Dr. Wolfe observed, "It's been a lot of fun."

Members of President Obama's family appear to mirror voters in general in their skepticism and later opposition of their relative's policies.

First, it was Obama's aunt, Zeituni Onyango, who's been living illegally in a housing project in Boston and proclaimed that she "loved President Bush."

Now, Obama's cousin wants to stop ObamaCare.

What's next? Michelle saying she wants her husband to stop smoking and that their kids are too fat?

Oh wait...

Will the Mainstream Media report this?

Odds are better that readers will hit the PowerBall jackpot than reading news that's truly unfavorable to this president when there's anything of value on the line.

So, the answer to the above question is, "probably not."

In the meantime, readers will have to depend on people like Dr. Milton Wolf to carry on the good fight.

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.
