Speaking of rankings ...
Posted by Victor Fleischer

Newmark's door has a ranking of econblogs.  His post does not include business-law-prof-blog rankings, but here's what my twenty minutes of research gets you:

                                            PageRank        BlogPulse           TTLB-Links
                                                               (lower is better)  (lower is better)

1.  Bainbridge                              7/10             417                   92
2.  Conglomerate                         6/10             518                  2054
2.  Ribstein                                  6/10             474                  n/a
2.  TaxProf                                  6/10             n/a                 3139
5.  Business Law Prof                    5/10            4408                 n/a
6.  Shaviro                                   5/10             n/a                  n/a
x.  Taxing Blog (no longer trading)  6/10            n/a                   n/a

(Newmark discusses the methodology of these systems, if you are interested.)  Bainbridge is the undisputed king of our little businesslawprof world, although posting cute pictures of kangaroos is kind of playing dirty.  Before you run off and buy stock in Bainbridge, though, compare his trend chart to ours: 

Bainbridge (sell! sell! sell!):   (N.B. -- the "Value" on the Y axis is the Blogpulse rating, so lower is better)


Conglomerate: (buy! buy! buy!) (N.B. the "Value" on the Y axis is the Blogpulse rating, so lower is better):


After some initial skittishness, it seems that, contrary to the dubious musings of Bainbridge and Ribstein, the market approves of the Taxing Blog merger (the deal closed on July 5).

Query whether Ribstein would approve of payola for blog links.

Now if only it were so easy to rank business law faculties ...
