The "Stickiest" Law Prof Blogs

Roger Alford (Pepperdine) has an interesting take on my quarterly traffic ranking (by visitors and page views) of the Top 35 blogs edited by law professors:  he re-ranks the blogs based on their "average visit length."  As Roger notes, SiteMeter measures traffic length on a daily basis and does not track visit length over a longer period.  Roger's snapshot ranking based on a single day's average visit length neverthless is interesting -- only three of the Top 10 blogs as measured by yearly traffic rank in the Top 10 in average visit length.  The "stickiest" blog is Tax Prof Jack Bogdanski's non-law blog, Jack Bog's Blog, with an average visit length of 2:56.  The Top 10 Law Prof blogs in average visit length, with the their corresponding traffic rankings, are:

1.   2:56 Jack Bog’s Blog (9)
2.   2:50 Sentencing Law & Policy Blog (10)
3.   2:42 Althouse (4)
4.   2:39 Opinio Juris (17)
4.   2:39 Election Law Blog (28)
6.   2:26 Mirror of Justice (26)
7.   2:21 Antitrust & Competition (35)
8.   2:19 Sports Law Blog (24)
9.   2:16 The Faculty Lounge (20)
10. 2:07 Right Coast (16)

Does this suggest that the posts are longer and more detailed, requiring a longer stay? Or does it suggest that people read everything on the blog in fewer, longer stays?
