The CONSERVATIVE 100 Ratings #2, February 14, 2010 DBKP’s bi-weekly rating of the Most Popular 100 Conservative sites on the web, the Conservative 100. The ratings are based on Alexa traffic rankings 3-month average.

As always, if we missed anyone, drop us a line in the comments with your site URL; we’ll include in the next ratings around the 1st of March. The Alexa rankings were largely taken from February 13, 2010 and include several from January 14, 2010.

The Top 100 Politically Popular Conservative list contains all sites of interest to conservatives or with a conservative point of view. Several Libertarian sites are also included, such as Reason and Freedom’s Phoenix.

The Top Five remain unchanged from two weeks ago. The number one slot is held by Fox News, followed by the Wall Street Journal’s Opinion page and the Drudge Report. Two “combination sites”, Breitbart.com/Big Hollywood and World Net Daily/Michael Savage round out the Top Five.

DBKP will release our DBKP Politically Popular Top 100 Conservative Blogs next week. DBKP POLITICALLY POPULAR CONSERVATIVE 100 February 13-14, 2010

It’s a commie pinko plot trying to bring about our defeat. FR only #8. It’s rigged. Must have been conducted by some underground progressives trying to demoralize us. On the other hand, I don’t have a clue what I’m talking about. Where are the pretzels?

Agreed. It is my #1. #2 isn't even close.

Agree with you about 1 but not 3 and 5. All 3 big time conservatives. 1 is just conservative compared to the rest of the slime in the MSM.

OK, Fox News isn’t conservative, it’s neutral. The Wall Street Journal’s opinion page is conservative, but a lot of the drivel news items they publish are the same liftist/AP garbage that everyone else publishes. I’d give them a neutral as well.

Now take those viewership numbers, and divide by the amount of money required to run the site.

We win!

Drudge is straight down the middle. He is an equal opportunity basher and simply collects the top headlines from other news sites and pimps them out with a picture.
I know he broke the Lewinsky story but that is sooo last century and he has very little influence now other than his daily “best of the lamestream” links.

Considering the low budget/small team operation to run this site, FR is the tops. We don't even do any advertising or active promotion of the site.

Moreover, this is a conservative site in all senses of the term. It is not a "big tent" operation.

The Libs like to go there looking for fringe articles that they can label all Republicans with.

They left out the most important conservative site on the internet: Meagan McCain's blog.

There was a survey that said the WSJ news (not commentary) was more left than the NYT.
