The PeekScores of 30 Top Political Bloggers

What is PeekScore?: PeekScore is a rank from 1 to 10, assigned to every person. The higher someone’s score, the “more important” they are on the web. In calculating your PeekScore and updating it often, PeekYou takes into account your known presence and activity on the Internet, including but not limited to; your blogging, participation in social networks, the number of your friends, followers, or readers, the amount of web content you create, and your prominence in the news.

The PeekScore blog may make a slightly pointed remark about a TV show or prominent media figure now and again, but when it comes to matters and figures political we stay well the heck out of it and simply report the facts. We’re here, after all, to promote our frankly incredible PeekScore product, and not our countless takes on the day’s myriad events. These men and women listed below surely deal in facts as well, but the bread and butter for the majority of them is provided via their not being the least bit shy when it comes to espousing their points of view.

Below are 30 of the individuals most closely associated with 30 of the blogosphere’s most prominent political sites, and as we do we’ve listed them in order – from highest to lowest – according to their PeekScores. We’ve embarked upon this entry with the intention of it being only the first installment of an ever-growing and routinely updated survey of just how impactful these pundits are here in the greater, public web.

Please feel free to comment on this entry providing suggestions of bloggers we should include on the list, and let us know your opinions of where your favorite (or least favorite) blogger currently rests in the rankings.
