I learn from Chris Blattman's indispensable blog of a new ranking of economic blogs. Yours truly is ranked 12th overall, which is a lot better than what I would have thought. According to the source, "rankings are based on the number of incoming links from other indexed economics blogs and some secret Econolog sauce. Only links from the past ninety days are counted."
Here is the thing. I have posted no more than two or three entries over the past ninety days (excluding the last couple of days, which presumably don't figure in the calculations anyhow). So this "sauce" in question must be pretty potent stuff.
