Thank You for Your Support – April Was a Good Month
Thank you for your support. April was a good month. Traffic was good and once again Gateway Pundit was listed as one of the country’s top ten political blogs in the Wikio rankings.
Here is how Wikio calculates their 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.
In December 2010, retweets were added as an additional factor to the ranking algorithm. For each twitter account, only one backlink per blog is taken into account each month.
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.
Here are the top political blogs this month.
1. Political Ticker
2. Think Progress
3. Political Hotsheet
4. Hot Air
5. The Corner
6. Daily Kos
7. The Caucus
8. Big Government
9. Gateway Pundit
10. Political Punch
Unfortunately, our friends at Media Matters, the dumbest website on the internet, did not have such a good month.
They dropped from 5 to 15. Evidently that dishonest far left tripe is just not what the people want right now.
