This is a list of the ranking of the main climate blogs based on Alexa. The sites were collected from those linked to by some of the main blogs as well as Realclimate. Please note, I have only given sites with a ranking and Alexa only give statistics for sites which have separate URLs, which means some sites are not listed. This affects several on Scienceblogs.com.
The list was correct as of 15th December. If I have missed any please feel free to add to comments.
**Slant: Where possible, I’ve used the description given with the link. However, where a description was not given, I’ve quickly looked to see. These could be wrong – if you spot any please add a comment.

- I had assumed Alexa was ranking using URL so that planetgore.nationalreview.com was different from nationalreview.com. This does not appear to be the case, so I do not know how Alexa decides when a site is listed separately. WordPress blogs certainly are each given their own ranking.
- It had not twigged that I was using an old Bishop Hill site address. For consistency (with another blog that changed) I will just give the new address as that has the higher count.
- After Anthony’s comment (2013/12/15 at 5:40 pm), I’ve adjusted the Blackboard to “Lukewarmer”. I will also update the spreadsheet.
- After Anthony’s comment (2013/12/15 at 5:43 pm I have added in hotwhopper (@37) as well as Bishop Hill’s old site (@12) and scef.org.uk(116) (Relevant spreadsheet: listofsites3

These sites either aren’t listed in Alexa or they are not counted separately
