Most Popular Law Blogs by Law Professors

Two related posts about the law blogosphere:

1.  Ian Best (Ohio State 3L) at 3L Epiphany catalogs the 500 legal blogs he has identified in the blogosphere.

2.  Roger Alford (Pepperdine) at OpinioJuris has updated his ranking of the most popular law blogs based on traffic reports on The Truth Laid Bare.  These traffic stats are imperfect, as they do not cover some popular law blogs (e.g., Legal Theory Blog, The Right Coast, The Becker-Posner Blog) and they do not measure RSS feeds.

The OpinioJuris list excludes blogs by law profs "that are not true law blogs" (e.g., InstaPundit, Hugh Hewitt, Althouse).  I thought it would be interesting to rank law blogs by law professors, so I excluded law blogs by practitioners on OpinioJuris's list (How Appealing, ACS Blog, Appellate Law & Practice, Southern California Law Blog, Crim Law):
