Thanks to readers and listeners to the big radio show, Radio Vice Online was ranked 189th in the Sept. 2010 Wikio rankings for political blogs. Not too shabby. It’s nice to be recognized by ranking services, but we really appreciate recognition from our peers from the conservative blog-o-sphere and our readers!
Jim Hoft has a sneak peak of the top political blogs for October. Needless to say, we’re not in the top 20 and that’s perfectly fine … we’ll be quite happy to break the top 250 again!
Information about the Wikio rankings…
The position of a blog in the Wikio ranking depends on the number and weight of the incoming links from other blogs. Our algorithm accords a greater value to links from blogs placed higher up in the ranking.
A blog linking another blog is only counted once a month i.e. if blog A links to blog B 10 times in a given month, it is only counted as having linked to that blog once that month. The weight of any link decreases over time. Also, if a blog always links to the same blog, the weight of these links is decreased.
Only links found in RSS feeds are counted. Blogrolls are not taken into account.
Our rankings are updated on a monthly basis and also include Top Blogs for several categories: Technology, Politics, etc. New categories will be added on a regular basis.
