If you haven't checked them out, Wikio ranks science-related blogs by the number and weight of the links to the blog. Wikio's latest monthly rankings have just been released. Over the past few months, Framing Science has ranked in the top 30 or so science-related blogs based on these metrics.
Something's funny here - where is Pharyngula? Isn't he the #1 blog on Science Blogs? If so, why the absence from this ranking?
âShow us the evidence our anti-religion rants turn people offâ, say the Pharyngula fans. Well boys, what if this is the evidence youâve been asking for? Ah ha ha ha!!
I doubt it's the explanation, other prominent science blogs are also not listed. ;-)
Funny, http://www.wikio.com/blogs/top/sciences shows a similar but not identical ranking: f'rinstance, # 2 is Bad Astronomy, & Dispatches from the Culture Wars comes in at # 8. Framing Science is # 32, and Living the Scientific Life is # 21.
Pharyngula doesn't show up anywhere on the list of 105 - is Myers really below GOP for Liberty! (for crysake) on the science blogs totem pole?
The widget I posted are for August rankings. Wikio, I believe, still has their July rankings up on their page.
Also, Pharyngula along with several other prominent science blogs such as Dot Earth are apparently not tracked.

And still do (and still undated).
Wotta buncha slackers!

Any idea what criteria Wikio uses for their exclusion filter?
Yeah, I'm certain Pharyngula gets more hits than EvolutionBlog (although I really like EvolutionBlog)
