Virginia Political Blog Rankings for 7/3/2011

The Virginia Political Blog Rankings for 7/3/2011 are out!

Apologies for the tardiness of this week’s rankings. The “snapshot” was taken on Sunday as usual, but I was out of state for the 4th of July Holiday and was unable to find the time to post.

But there are some significant changed in the rankings!

It looks like a few of the blogs followed the advice in the FAQ document and listed their blogs in the various ranking engines. And it paid off. Last week, 41 blogs were not listed in Technorati and that number is now down to 37 unlisted out of 64.

How well did this pay off for these four blogs?

Shaun Kenney came up 124% and rose from 24th overall to 15th.

The Richmonder came up 80% and moved up from 28th overall to 20th.

The American Civil War was up 131% rising from #31 overall to #22.

But Mosquito Blog did best of all, rising 1,355% and moving from #45 overall to #23 and taking the “Most Improved Political Blog” title for the week.

Looking back 3 weeks to the “pre-Blog Rank 2.0” rankings, Shaun Kenney was ranked #33 and is now #15, The Richmonder was #32 and is now #20, The American Civil War was #39 and is now #22, and Mosquito Blog was #26 and is now #23.

This week, 14 out of 20 Lefty Blogs improved (70%) and 29 out of 45 Righty Blogs improved (64%).

Overall, 43 out of 65 Virginia Blogs improved (66%).

Hopefully, more of the Virginia Political Blogs will take the small amount of effort it takes to follow the advice in the FAQ. If you noticed, the Alexa ranking of the 4 blogs that are newly listed on Technorati all improved as well. I can’t be sure of the exact algorithms these ranking sites use as they are all “secrets”, but they do seem to pay attention to each other, and the search engines rank according to these site rankings. Well, it is at least a significant factor.

The four blogs mentioned here should all see at least a few more hits begin drifting in from search engines as their reach has expanded now. And more “hits” are always good.

As to the other 37 sites hidden from Technorati. what are you waiting for? It’s easy to become more influential.

Here are the rankings, and as always feel free to Contact me with comments, questions or suggestions.
