Virginia Political Blog Rankings for 5-15-2011 – Not Larry Sabato Drops to #5

The Virginia Political Blog Rankings for 5/15/2011 are out!

The news this week is that Ben Tribbit’s Not Larry Sabato was replaced at the #3 slot (overall) by Bart Hinkle’s Barticles. Tribbet’s blog falls to #4. Barticles has been climbing of late and Not Larry Sabato has been in a gradual decline for some time, although the gap was fairly significant to begin with. On January 9, 2011, Not Larry Sabato was ranked #339496 by the Alexa Ranking Service and Barticles was #476138 that same week. This week, Not Larry Sabato has fallen to 424209 in the Alexa rankings and Barticles has risen to 389049. (Obviously the closer to #1 the better.)

This marks the first time since the rankings began that one of the top 5 blogs has moved. The closer to the top, the harder it is to make significant leaps upward. It is easier to fall – simply don’t post!

Several blogs moved a couple of spots, but the one that stands out for the second week in a row as This Week’s Most Improved Blog is The American Civil War improving 38% over last week (which showed an improvement of 102%!)

That equates to 12 spots in the standings (from #55 to #43) for the winner’s spot! It should be noted that The American Civil War has moved from #71 to #43 in just 2 weeks. Must be doing something right over there!

This week, 6 out of 22 Lefty Blogs improved (27%) and 11 out of 52 Righty Blogs improved (21%).

23% of Virginia Political blogs improved in the rankings this week! (Compared to 58% improving last week!) A bit of a drop off, but the post Bin Laden bump appears to have subsided for both the blogs and the president.

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