Still #1.

In the Law Prof Blog Traffic Rankings. (Which don't include Instapundit, because he doesn't display Site Meter.)

As Erma Bombeck would say, "you're so above average".

Congrats.

leslyn said...

Oh. I thought this was going to be about Aaron Rodgers. (sigh) Maybe because I was dreaming last night about the Packer game I'm going to for my birthday, and it made me happy.

Tank said...

Wow. And killing those also rans.

Yay us. Oh wait, did I just take credit?

Patrick said...

I keep coming back because the blog stays interesting.

And fun, usually.

Let's see...eighteen million views...assume, say, 4% of those click on comments links, so that's seven hundred thousand or so...and I comment on maybe 10% of the Professor's posts, so we're at seventy thousand potentials, of which maybe 3% read LOTS of comments, and maybe 40% of those read one of my comments...so, carry the one, drag the two...I may have exposed myself to 800 people!

fleetusa said...

.. and so well deserved is this blog and the tremendous work you do pointing out the bizarre and illogical as well as the top issues. All with an astute legal analysis.

Merci!

Bob Ellison said...

Wait...eighteen million views, but only eleven million visitors, of which perhaps 10% are unique visitors...Internet math is hard...well, fifty people may have read what I wrote. I'm a star because I comment on Althouse!

Bob Ellison said...

No, wait...some of those are 'bots...I, for one, welcome my robot readers...

raf said...

Is it significant that the top "law prof blog" may have the least "law content" of the competitors? Or, at least, the most non-law content. There may be a category error here somewhere, but Althouse may defy categorization. Is there a ranking of "vortex blogs"?

I love it that you're number 1.

ricpic said...

The best thing about this site is the dearth of comments by anonymous.

MadisonMan said...

Congratulations.

I hope you make lots of money doing something you obviously like doing. Win win!

Scott M said...

So when do we regulars go full-metal-Huffpo and unionize for content payments? I mean, it worked out well for them, didn't it?

Didn't it?

...hello...?

ricpic said...

The next best thing is that it is easily the most catholic, small c, site on the net.

traditionalguy said...

Your posts are works of literature. Their scope is wide. Their knowledge level is deep. Other than that I can't see why you are popular.

I suspect that like Limbaugh many liberals read you to see what is real in the world. Fantasy can be so boring.

Lem said...

Congratulations professor.

bagoh20 said...

I don't read a lot of these, so I'm wondering; does anyone who does, see some commonality among the more successful and especially the fast-growing like Legal Insurrection?

Just keep using that Amazon portal if you want to show you care!

MadisonMan said...

If I buy something via the portal, and then subsequently return it, do you keep your cut of the sale?

It's only an academic question -- The last time I bought from amazon was last century.

edutcher said...

Many congrats, Madame.

You work hard on the blog, you deserve the rewards.

Wally Kalbacken said...

Kicking ass and taking no prisoners!

ndspinelli said...

Money means you care? There is much more to caring than the temporal. Happy people understand that.

The category identified is blogs by law professors.

But even if it were law blogs, click the link in my banner and turn this into a law only blog. Then compare it to some only law blog and tell me I have less law content than the presumed competitors.

I don't. I have more. And I have all this other stuff too.

Of course not!

bagoh20 said...

"Of course not"

Too bad. I was gonna buy Greece on Amazon and then return it.

Perhaps I should have referred to the percentage of law-related posts. Not being critical, believe me. I just think that the "other stuff" pulls in a lot of visits from people not necessarily interested in just the law stuff. That gives you a competitive advantage. There is nothing bad about a competitive advantage. If I were trying to draw some conclusions about the other law prof blogs, though, I would be inclined to compare them to each other, rather than to yours. I think you are fairly unique.
