Law Prof Blog Traffic Rankings

Below are the updated quarterly traffic rankings by page views of the Top 50 blogs edited by law professors for the July 1, 2013 - June 30, 2014 period, as well as the percentage change in traffic from the prior 12-month period.  As I previously announced, in response to several requests and in light of the continued degrading of Site Meter, I am now including the more accurate, stable Google Analytics data in these quarterly traffic rankings (marked with an asterisk).

  • These Law Prof Blog Traffic Rankings are drawn from Dan Solove's Law Professor Blogger Census, as updated by Colin Miller's Legal Educator Blog Census.  They include all blogs edited by law professors -- both law-related and non law-related.
  • Please email me the names of any Law Prof Blogs with traffic over the past twelve months that would qualify for inclusion on the lists (170,662 page views and/or 123,178 visitors).  If necessary, I will re-publish the list to include all qualifying blogs.
  • Several popular Law Prof Blogs do not have publicly available SiteMeters and thus are not included on the list:  e.g., California Appellate Report, Credit Slips, The Deal Professor, Dorf on Law, Feminist Law Professors, InstaPundit, Legal Theory, Point of Law, ProfessorBainbridge.com, Volokh Conspiracy.
  • These rankings cover only those blogs edited by law professors.  Other law-related blogs edited by practitioners, librarians, non-law school academics, and journalists are not included on this list:  e.g., Above the Law, How Appealing, Law Librarian Blog, Wall Street Journal Law Blog.
  • Members of our Law Professor Blogs Network comprise one of the Top 10 and nine of the Top 35 blogs.

Update:  Removed Volokh Conspiracy from the rankings because it did not have a full twelve months of SiteMeter data.

  • These Law Prof Blog Rankings are drawn from Dan Solove's Law Professor Blogger Census, as updated by Colin Miller's Legal Educator Blog Census.  They include all blogs edited by law professors -- both law-related and non law-related.
  • Please email me the names of any Law Prof Blogs with traffic over the past twelve months that would qualify for inclusion on the lists (204,466 page views and/or 143,208 visitors).  If necessary, I will re-publish the list to include all qualifying blogs.
  • Several popular Law Prof Blogs do not have publicly available SiteMeters and thus are not included on the list:  e.g., California Appellate Report, Credit Slips, The Deal Professor, Dorf on Law, Feminist Law Professors, InstaPundit, Legal Theory, Point of Law, Volokh Conspiracy. 
  • These rankings cover only those blogs edited by law professors.  Other law-related blogs edited by practitioners, librarians, non-law school academics, and journalists are not included on this list:  e.g., Above the Law, How Appealing, Law Librarian Blog, Wall Street Journal Law Blog.
  • Members of our Law Professor Blogs Network comprise, by both page views and visitors, two of the Top 10, three of the Top 25, and nine of the Top 35 blogs.

  • These Law Prof Blog Rankings are drawn from Dan Solove's Law Professor Blogger Census, as updated by Colin Miller' Legal Educator Blog Census.  They include all blogs edited by law professors -- both law-related and non law-related.
  • Please email me the names of any Law Prof Blogs with traffic over the past twelve months that would qualify for inclusion on the lists (225,025 page views and/or 148,569 visitors).  If necessary, I will re-publish the list to include all qualifying blogs.
  • Several popular Law Prof Blogs do not have publicly available SiteMeters and thus are not included on the list:  e.g., California Appellate Report, Credit Slips, The Deal Professor, Dorf on Law, Feminist Law Professors, InstaPundit, Legal Theory, Point of Law, ProfessorBainbridge.com. 
  • These rankings cover only those blogs edited by law professors.  Other law-related blogs edited by practitioners, librarians, non-law school academics, and journalists are not included on this list:  e.g., Above the Law, How Appealing, Law Librarian Blog, Wall Street Journal Law Blog.
  • Members of our Law Professor Blogs Network comprise, by page views, two of the Top 10, four of the Top 25, and nine of the Top 35 blogs; and by visitors, two of the Top 10, five of the Top 25, and ten of the Top 35 blogs.

Law Prof Blog Rankings by Citations in Journals and Judicial Opinions

Following up on my recent rankings of law professor blogs by traffic and 'stickiness': Dave Hoffman (Temple) ranks the Top 20 law blogs by citations in law reviews and the Top 15 law blogs by citations by courts (the spreadsheet with all the law blog data is here -- TaxProf Blog is #24 in citations in law reviews).  The only blogs on both citations lists are:
  • Volokh Conspiracy (2, 3)
  • Sentencing Law & Policy (7, 1)
  • Prawfs Blawg (9, 5)
  • Becker-Posner (10, 5)
  • Technology Law & Marketing (17, 5)

The "Stickiest" Law Prof Blogs

Following up on yesterday's post, Law Prof Blog Rankings:  as others have pointed out, raw traffic numbers (visitors and page views) are only one of the measures of the influence of blogs.  "Stickiness' -- the amount of time readers spend on a blog -- also is an important metric.  Unfortunately, the SiteMeter measure -- Average Visit Length -- is problematic for at least two reasons.  First, it computes the average only for the most recent week.  Second, it begins counting the visit length only when a reader goes to a second page; if a reader stays on a single page, the visit is given a 0 visit length (no matter how long the reader lingers on that page).

From what I am told, Alexa uses a more sophisticated aproach in computing its Time on Site metric, which it measures over rolling weekly, monthly, and three-month periods.  Here are the three-month Time on Site data for the 25 of the Top 35 Law Prof blogs by traffic as measured by Alexa:
