Whilst most of the search referalls were variations of Lib/Liberal/Dem/Democrats/Blogs some which caught my eye were

Some caveats, only the most recent 10 posts per blogger are shown on LibDemBlogs, so some archive pages might not contain all the posts on that day. The most popular blog is counted by the number of click-throughs to the main URL of a blog, it is excluding all links direct to blog posts. The most popular posts only count those clicked directly on the title of the post on LibDemBlogs, excluded is any links followed via the RSS feed, or people who clicked on the authors name.

Happy 2008!

  1. It’d be interestnig to know what propotion of these blog’s traffic comes from other sources.

    I suspect that blogs (such as those by MPs or councillors) get much more of their traffic from people going to them direct rather than via a Lib Dem site and that it is those which are more inward focused that get the most benefit from LibDemBlogs.
