Anglican Website Rankings – August

I’ve decided to begin a monthly post that will update the Anglican website rankings so we can see what’s happening out there in the AugustinoethersphereTM! This table shows the top 40 sites with changes since the start of the month. In it you can see how the events in Anaheim have affected web browsing and led to some sites seeing more traffic (and some less).

Not much movement at the top of the table, but down towards the middle and bottom we can see that on the whole conservative sites have done better than revisionist ones. One interesting fact is that most websites have seen an improvement in their Alexa ranking, but remember, this chart shows the relative standings of Anglican sites, not their absolute position.

Do add any sites in the comments that you think I’ve missed.

  • The Church Mouse


    I’m not sure how accurate the Alexa stats are. They certainly bear no relation to my stats from Google Analytics. Have you tried using Technorati or Wikio?


    • Peter Ould

      Well ideally I’d like to be able to access everybody’s raw traffic logs, but seeing as that’s not possible…

      Alexa it is.

      Thanks JF – we’ll see if they get into the September table.

  • Peter Carrell

    I would be interested to see my own site, Anglican Down Under (, appear on such a list!

    According to Alex it’s ranking (today) is 1,631,096 … roundabout 24th on your rankings which, frankly, seems way too high, as I cannot believe it is read by more people than Preludium!!

  • Matthew

    Alexa is clearly flawed. My little exercise in snarkery is ranked higher (1,492,787) than George Conger, Mark Harris or Susan Russell. Not only are those three brighter than I am, they are linked to much more frequently.

Anglican Cycle

Christ the King
Eternal Father, whose Son Jesus Christ ascended to the throne of heaven that he might rule over all things as Lord and King: keep the Church in the unity of the Spirit and in the bond of peace, and bring the whole created order to worship at his feet; who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.

Two Final Things

Aber mit der Heimat
geht man immer herum,
durch die Welt,
dort und dort
Peter Handke

No one could describe
the Word of the Father;
but when He took flesh from you, O Theotokos,
He consented to be described, and restored the fallen image to its former beauty.
We confess and proclaim our salvation in word and image.
