The Top 150 Conservative Websites, October 2012

Here are the latest rankings of conservative news and opinion sites, which are ranked based upon Alexa traffic rankings. Yes, some of these are middle-of-the-road or moderate sites, but they are included because they do publish center-right opinion pieces on a regular basis.

#108 ain't nothing to sneeze at, Doug. Congratulations!

It's lucky the list went up to 160. Thanks Doug!

"The Daily Beast" a conservative website? In a pig's eye, maybe.

The_Bad said...

#8,247,692: Rants and Other Refinements. I keep all three readers glued to their computers.

808soulsurfer said...

ellmAwesome...108 is actually a very significant number with powerful symbolic meaning to various cultures. Well done!

directorblue said...

Chris - you are absolutely right about that, I missed it!

Have included DBD in the BadBlue database and also cued up for inclusion in the next list...

Sorry about that!

directorblue said...

Daily Beast is included solely because of Eli Lake's reporting...

Jack Daniels said...

what happened to iOTW?

Warner Todd Huston said...

I always kind of thought radio guys should not appear in lists like this. Not because they aren't conservative, but because they sort of have a different mandate AND because they have a bit of an unfair advantage since they have a built-in audience of millions. They should be in a list of their own.

And I have a question. What the heck is #56? Creators? Never herd of them and I went to the link and there's nothing there. How can that be a "top" site?

Anonymous said...

Where's InstaPundit. I see sites like Althouse and Ace on the list -- both of which are clearly below Insty

directorblue said...

iOwnTheWorld shoulda been in there... somehow got removed accidentally!

K-Bob said...

Thanks, Doug! Nice to see some work that filters out the crazy.

Beck's new channel on the gas-fired TeeVee has got me watching it once in a while. Having an entire "network" seems to have put him on firmer footing.

I was never a big fan of his radio show, but I watched a lot of his 5pm Fox things. Then it seemed like he was wandering off the map altogether (culminating in that huge, rally-to-nowhere in DC). So I sort of gave up on the endeavor.

But for now, it's nice having a conservative/libertarian news hour with no talk-over-each-other crap, and no Alan Colmes types "for balance."

I hope it stays normal. (-ish.)

Hugh Beaumont said...

The neocons have done to conservatism what the movie Deliverance did to Southern hospitality.

Maggie@Maggiesnotebook said...

Doug, thanks so much for the work you do on this. I know it has to be quite time consuming.

directorblue said...

Maggie, thanks - actually, the whole thing takes about 15 or 20 minutes. I wrote some code to help automate the entire process.

One of these days, I'll get the list of sites right. USA Today and Bloomberg shouldn't be there... Day By Day, Barnhardt and iOwnTheWorld should be...

Any chance of shifting over to using Quantcast for rankings?

They seem more reliable (better methodology) and appear to have more data points.

akdart said...

If you used Quantcast "monthly US people" rankings, my site would be at about #114 on this list. And do you really think borderlandbeat.com has more visitors than anncoulter.com ?

Personal Liberty Digest ought to be in there. 24,313 global/5,545 US.
