A blog, the shortened version of weblog, is a publication on the web usually consisting of personally written articles listed in reverse chronological order. Like magazines or television stations, most weblogs pick a particular topic or niche and concrete most of their writing in that area to gain an interested audience, and become popular websites.
Blogs generally use content management or publishing systems which allow for adding new articles and pages to the website with ease. Because of this even a novice on the web can start writing and create a popular blog. What is the most popular blog today?
If you consider Drew Curtis’ Fark.com a weblog, then it is currently the most popular weblog was measured by number of visits per day with over 1,000,000 visits/day according to The Truth Laid Bear (TTLB).
TTLB’s Blog Ecosystem measures links from blogs which it tracks to other weblogs which are being tracked. Using this method of link counting, Glenn Renold’s right-leaning political website Instapundit.com is the most popular blog today, but when you start look at visitors and pageviews, it is clear that Instapundit while influential may not be the most popular blog.
