Congratulations. The media cites the dailykooks like it invented the political forum and they can’t make top 5?

It's surprising that the Huffington Post gets such traffic; especially since there are so many lib sites in the top ten.

I was looking at the Quantcast numbers.

A million monthly uniques is already huge but the jump 50% to a million and and half around election time is amazing.

“It’s surprising that the Huffington Post gets such traffic; especially since there are so many lib sites in the top ten.”

It does seem odd but then again Arianna probably has a network of servo-controlled hit-generators to gin up the numbers ... no jest!

A ton of websites are left out. According to Malkin’s numbers she gets as many uniques as FR...on each of her 2 websites.

Quantcast can give you a sense of the rankings but their numbers are wrong.

The huffposties number — that seems a tad strange, mighty strange. Maybe I’m out of touch with those of that persuation but that number is way too high, imo. Robo-visits?

The greedy and criminal trip up all the time on being for too much for themselves. And given the charge on hitcounts, the net fraud might be criminal! Just an OPINION, mind you.

Alert!

BOR is talking about the hate speech on HuffPo tonight on his show, such as that directed to Tony Snow.

Hmmmm.....of course, BOR has already slammed FR.

LOL. Just heard O’Reilly’s show talking about the millions in advertising revenue being made by Huffington. Also millions invested in the site by her backers.

Now you have to figure out how to get some advertising $$$$ without threatening your nonprofit status and getting too much in our way. :-))

Then buy yourself a Lear jet.

A warning to websites who fudge the numbers?

When newspapers fudge the numbers
http://www.sptimes.com/2004/09/19/Business/When_newspapers_fudge.shtml

For Scott Harding, head of the nation's largest advertising buying group, the revelations this summer that four large U.S. newspapers had inflated their circulation was a stunner. The bogus circulation numbers resulted in higher advertising rates, which meant that Harding's clients - including such major companies as Sears, AT&T and BMW - had been routinely overcharged for their ads.

Since mid June, Tribune Co.'s Newsday and Hoy, Hollinger International's Chicago Sun-Times and Belo Corp.'s Dallas Morning News have admitted boosting the paid circulation figures on which ad rates are based. Instead of delivering newspapers - and advertisements - to paying customers, at least two of the publications reportedly tossed thousands of copies into trash bins and even onto dead people's doorsteps.

... The district attorney on Long Island is investigating possible criminal charges against Newsday and Hoy.

Odd, that.

Netcraft has FReerepublic.com at 890 and, MichelleMalkin.com at 3244.

What’s a better, more accurate, website?
