For the record, only

For the record, only

The year-end 2011 Law Prof Blog Rankings from TaxProf are out.

It is noted only for the record, in the interest of preserving a slice of America as we know it for future generations, not because it matters to me.

I’m above worrying about the small stuff like blog traffic, and focused like a hawk on the big picture.

(Note:  Since Instapundit no longer has a public Sitemeter and therefore is not included, you can slide each ranking down one notch in reality.)

Pretty cool! Now you’re really hot stuff in th blogosphere!

I also noticed the overall increase in the numbers for each. Should be telling us more people are getting involved with the blogs. That in itself says quite a few things.

DocWahala, reconfirms his belief that the undercurrent is growing and an awakening is taking place.

Congrats Prof, the hits are well deserved, keep up the good work.

And don’t let it go to your head! 🙂

I’m not above brown-nosing a professor.

I really like LI, and Volokh. Never got interested much in the category leader, however. Oh well. I always picked the Prof, not the Course.

You know you’ve made the big time when Rush is raving about your blog. Good job, Prof! Well deserved.

Well deserved, Prof. Who needs newspapers anyway? LI is one of my daily must-reads when the time permits (right after Drudge). The time I used to spend reading the writers of Hot Air is now put to better use here–your coverage of controversial news stories is more provocative and engaging. You don’t shy away from trouble–I like that.

Anyway, your blog and very original voice is sheer excellence. Your commenting regulars are great, too.

Right On, Professor J!

Visitors up nearly 50 percent? Page views up 65 percent?

As Joe Biden would say, that’s a big f**kin’ deal!

Congrats, Prof. Well done.

Very nice job, professor, very nice! Thanks for ALL you do!

movin’ on up …. next thing you know you’ll qualify for a “DEElux apartment in the blog world sky I I i.”

Is there a subsidy for bloggers, or is it a meritocracy? 🙂

Excellent, professor, I see that your plans for world-domination are moving forward nicely.


Instapundit isn’t really a “blog”, it’s a news-aggregator. And a poor one at that.

So those law website rankings are legit, in my view.

Instapundit is a category onto himself. You are #1 in my heart! Congrats!!!!

I spend time first thing and revisit often every day at LI (we retired folks don’t have much of a life.) I also frequently look at the multitudinous postings of Anne Althouse – who must set records on the number of posts by a blogger (although I have not seen a statistical comparison) helped along by her blogging style. I have just began following Tom Maguire at JustOneMinute on his Martin-Zimmermann coverage and he too has that certain dedication to craft that so typifies the writings of Willam Jacobson and Anne Althouse.

Accountants like me are impressed with large improvements in numbers and WOW, a 49+% increase in page reads for 2010 over 2009 and 65% boost in 2011 are incredible numbers. I can only imagine that 2012 will be more of the same.

Top drawer stuff, professor – keep up the good work.

Congrats to your co-conspirators also, Kathleen, Bryan, and Anne.

Well, LI is first in my book.

1. Congratulations to you and your associates.

2. Fortunately, those narcissistic politicians are being monitored by an ego-free blogosphere! 😉

3. I respect Althouse, take her views seriously, and don’t dislike her, but something about her rubs me the wrong way.

Congratulations, Professor!

Ed Rushbo Sullivan is singing your praises and you’re on a Pan Am jet hanging a left at Greenland.

LukeHandCool (who was there in the figurative Cavern Club days).

My first brush with LI was during the fracas surrounding Sarah Palin’s comment to the effect that Paul Revere actually, warned the British..”

The Prof eloquently defended her statement with the simple notion of referring to Revere’s diary.

I’ve been a fan ever since and I consider this to be the “gentlemen’s blog” as compare to my other favorite, Weasel Zippers where I can just wallow happily in the muck..

Chiming in late but I have to say: I Am Not Surprised. This is not just the best “law prof” blog; it’s the best, period. (And it also has the most articulate and thoughtful followers. ;-))

Way to go, Professor! (And congratulations!)

Congrats! Thank you for all you do and the hard work it takes to give us the TRUTH!


Congrats, Professor. 😀

I wondered why the Blogfather wasn’t on it, but it would make sense to exclude him anyway. Heh, I remember when he used to troll his Tech Central Station site for Instapundit visitors! I was a late adopter myself; TCS was a regular stop, but I wasn’t sure the whole “blogging” thing would ever catch on.

Congratulations, your success is well-earned, and with Reynolds’ libertarian proclivities and Volokh’s disparate cast, you are the most dependably conservative major law-prof-blogger out there. Or out here, as the case may be.
