TaxProf Blog: 8th Most Influential Law Faculty Blog

Race to the Bottom has ranked the 50 Most Influential Law Faculty Blogs for 2007:

[T]here is no single metric for ranking the popularity and/or influence of blogs, much less law blogs. There are two principle ways of ranking blogs: traffic (which is not a term with automatic meaning) and through the number of links to a page. Links has generally been used as sign of influence. Two ranking systems, Google (Page Rank) and Technorati ( rely mostly on links. Justia relies on traffic although it assesses traffic largely from the results of its own search engine. In addition, a number of blogs have a site meter or were willing to provide internal traffic data. Finally, with respect to law faculty blogs, influence can be seen from the number of court and law review citations. This system, therefore, ranks law faculty blogs based upon traffic, links, and citations. For each category, blogs were assigned a score, generally 1-10, with the lowest signifying the best performance.

I am delighted that TaxProf Blog is tied for eighth under this measure.  Here are the Top 10:

1. Volokh Conspiracy 
2. Sentencing Law and Policy 
3. Jurist- Paper Chase 
5. Balkanization 
6. Concurring Opinions 
7. Hugh Hewitt's Townhall Blog 
8. Prawfs Blawg
8. TaxProf Blog
