These are the top 100 conservative websites for 2013 and first quarter of 2014 according to Alexa, the web’s number one source for website rankings. This list is based on worldwide rankings, not US rankings. However, it should give you a general idea since almost all of these sites are solely based on conservative American politics. If you want to know what’s happening with conservative politics in the US, this list should keep you busy for a while.

The team of experts at RedFlag painstakingly compile these lists on a quarterly basis. Do you not see your favorite website here? Websites must first qualify in global rankings prior to being entered into the US Leaderboard below. After confirming your rank with Alexa, please submit your site at the bottom of this page.

FR is number 13. Breitbart is number 5. This is an excerpt because I found it too much trouble to get the table to display correctly. For the complete list, see the link.

I cannot quibble with any of the ranking, but I do have a couple of observations.

I like both Breitbart and The Blaze but find both a little hard to navigate since they both seem to be more video oriented and I am a vey visual man who prefers the written version. I noticed that Ann Coulter has dropped 15 places from the previous listing. Another year and she will be history.

Hard to tell what the rankings are based on. Bill O’reilly more conservative than Mark Levin or Rush? I don’t think so.

Agreed.

Plus, you can usually read the stories from those sites on FR before too long.

I love how fast FR loads on my Kindle or phone and trying to navigate the Blaze on a touch screen is soo annoying.

Alexa is web traffic rankings, not a ranking of how conservative someone is.

Too many websites create clutter, because they can.

I recall when desktop publishing got started in the late 1980s, many would use half-a-dozen different fonts on a page. Then came the advent of color desktop printing and multiple colors of fonts on each page. They looked horrible and many were difficult to read.

They, like more current web pages, ignore an aged concept: KISS [Keep It Simple, Stupid!]. Many would get more traffic if they returned to that concept. I hate any web page where I have to guess where links and information are, where videos run automatically — and many times, loudly — without controls, etc.

She was the one pushing Christie to run in 2012, but apparently, he sat on her dream, so she turned anti-Christie.

Yep.

The automatic videos drive me nuts. I’ve hit a few automatic audio ads that you can’t turn off etc...

In this age of mobile everything and touch screens you can’t “mouse over” a link to see where it goes.

I’m wondering if there’s an app that would turn my touch screen into a “touch pad” ?

Savage's high number is easily explained - his site is hosted by WND and benefits from cross-promotion. No surprise they are nearly the same rank.

Tom remember when she was well loved here, her articles would draw hundreds of posts, and always demands to “follow the rules”, which meant posting pictures of her. Now her articles posted here do not get 50 posts, and none of those all for pictures or follow the rules, most deride her.

Next year she will not even be in the top 100, she dates Bill “the fascist” Mahr an ultra left-wing bottom feeding troll.

from Breitbart:

BILL MAHER ON HIS ‘HISTORY’ WITH ANN COULTER
Nov. 22, 2013 | Eddie Scarry

“I know the liberals hate it, and I don’t care. First of all, I’ve known her that long. There’s something about an old friendship. You just have history with somebody. Not romantic history. No. I would never date a Republican. I never have. I wouldn’t. Nor would she be interested in dating me. But she is a fun person if you just don’t get political when you talk."

You know, this really doesn’t mean much, this list. Rush Limbaugh isn’t known for his website. He’s known for his radio program, as is Michael Savage and Mark Levin. Check out the traffic amounts for their radio programs, not their websites. You can go down this list and a lot of those listed are known not for their websites but rather for their TV programs, radio programs, books, or newspaper columns. In other words, other media, not websites. So I don’t take a whole lot from this list, really.

No she doesn't. She and Mahr are friends which is senseless IMO.

It's widespread knowledge that you hate Coulter, therefore your opinions of her and her status have no value.

Your statements are just as dumb as you, if someone hates someone it does not invalidate what they say about them. I hate Obama, so my statements about him are therefore invalid.

I detest middle of the road liberals who pretend to be conservatives you and Ann are just that.

Her articles here used to get hundreds of posts and crys for pictures now she is lucky if she gets 50 posts and 85% are anti-idiot liberal Bill Mahr dating Ann, and yes SHE DID DATE HIM, nice try however..

I see I join Obama and Coulter living rent free in your head.

Why did you bring Obama into the conversation, just to show how “conservative” you are by hating the man instead of what he does, what his agenda is?

Typical leftist behavior, being a spewer of invectives.
You are a despicable little girl full of hate.

(the list goes on and on: Rush, Sean, Laura, Ann, Levin, Malkin, Beck, Huckabee, Megan Kelly, Jeannie Pirro--did I muss any?) Plus your ability to understand simple English without spinning it to what you wanted me to say is so weak.

I never said Coulter never dated Maher, I said she is not dating him.

But no, you missed that and acted like I said something I didn't.

SOP for you.

Your constant whining about Coulter is getting a bit stale, with your fake stats and misspellings not to mention comments about physical features that apparently turn you on.

Coulter is a 100 times more conservative than you are, you are probably only here on FR to make conservatives look like hateful little twits.

hows her adams apple coiming

Probably the "coiming" is in the vicinity of YOUR adam's apple.

(Man I feel sorry for the kids you homeschool...no spelling/grammar skills taught and being infused with hate)

“Commentary Magazine” dropped 25 places to #63.

Justly deserved!

They spend more time attacking Conservatives and the Tea Party than they do attacking the Democrats.

They aren’t ranked according to how Conservative they are.

They are ranked based on the number of unique world wide visitors they get.
