Wikio.co.uk. publish Top Blog rankings every month for several categories. This month sees the launch of their new Economy rankings.
They've sent me an advance copy of the listing, which is as follows:
You’ll note Tax Research UK comes in at number 6.
But let’s put that in context: four of the five blogs that beat it are run by either the BBC or the Economist; the other has multiple authors.
And of those that follow Tax Research UK at least eight are run by major media organisations, one (Malcolm Coles) seems to have remarkably little economic content, and some of the others have multiple authors. No others are from a left of centre perspective (well, Paul Mason may well be, but not for the BBC).
In that context I am admit to being quite pleased with this ranking even if I have no clue how they cam up with it. I guess it’s traffic based.
