Current and Historical Blawg Rankings
What is the measure of a blawg? Well, one is metrics, and the folks at Justia are using metrics derived from their blawg and podcast search tools to rank the most popular law blogs currently and historically. As Justia CEO Tim Stanley announces here, Justia has added historical snapshots of the most popular blawgs on a monthly basis dating back to its launch of BlawgSearch in October 2006. For each month, Justia lists the 200 most popular blawgs overall, as well as the top 20 blawgs in various categories. Justia ranks blawgs based on the number of visits or podcast plays the blawg receives from the BlawgSearch.com and Blawgs.FM sites. Stanley says that protections are in place to guard against rankings click fraud. He explains:
"There are different weights depending on where the clicks occur, but basically if people see your blawg on BlawgSearch and decide to visit your Blawg, your blawg is ranked higher."
The rankings reveal the most consistently popular blog to be Above the Law, which is at or near the top of the list nearly every day, Stanley says.
