The Wikio blog rankings are out for July and I've been going through them looking for Scottish political blogs and have been really surprised that I could only find seven in the top hundred.
The Wikio rankings aren't based on visitors to your site, but on the number of other bloggers who link to you. This is supposed to be a measure of how influential you are as a blogger. I think the easiest way for me to view this is complete narcissism - in months when I go up, it will be a very accurate measure, and when I go down, it'll be rubbish! It's also worth saying that people don't necessarily link to people because they like what they're saying. On the occasions I've linked to Iain Dale, or Tom Harris, it's usually because I disagree with them, however well they have expressed their point.
So, here are our Super Seven (sorry, Subrosa, for nicking your phrase)with the UK ranking in brackets:
1. Tom Harris (10)
2. Cute Greek Baby (17)
3. Subrosa (64)
4. SNP Tactical Voting (66)
5. Stephen's Linlithgow Journal (73)
6. Caron's Musings (79)
7. Amused Cynicism (82)
I think there are people who aren't on this list who should be, whose every word I read, like Kez, Yousuf, Andrew, Will, Bernard , Duncan and Malc. Let's hope we can get some more of us in there over the next few months.
