The Virginia Political Blog Rankings for 9/25/2011 – Bearing Drift #1

The Blog Rankings are out for 9/25/2011! While I have managed to gather the data the past couple of weeks, a number of obstacles have managed to make things a bit more difficult.

As soon as we got our lights back on from the hurricane, it seems that it has been one thing after another. I moved my business to a new location and did much of the work myself, with my family. So my time has been monopolized by that.

And if that were not enough, it saems that several of the ranking engines have made changes, had outages, and took more time than it normall does.

In the process, I also made a tweak to the data gathering. Alexa has a Global ranking as well as a US ranking. Since I use the US ranking from Technorati, I thought it made sense to also use the US ranking for Alexa. (I wish they had a state by state ranking, but that is asking for too much!)

Of course, some blogs are ranked globally, but not Nationally. In that event, I revert to the Global listing.

While it will take another week (providing the ranking engines stop giving me a moving – or down – target) for the upward and downward movement to stabilize, one change that is noteworthy is that Bearing Drift has moved up to the top slot! As the Virginia election cycle heats up, these guys consistently do a top notch job at covering Virginia Politics.

Congratulations to JR Hoeft and Company!

    Thank you for sharing the blog rankings! It's nice to see a comparison of both the right and the left. More Virginia political figures appear on the locally-produced Charlottesville politics interview program Politics Matters with host Jan Madeleine Paynter: http://bit.ly/polmatters. The current program features Bob Gibson, Executive Director of the UVA Sorensen Institute for Political Leadership, discussing journalism and the media.

Tom White Says:

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
