Top 100 Conservative Websites for 2012 by Alexa Rank

April 6, 2012
By

These are the top 100 conservative websites for 2012 according to Alexa, the web’s number one source for website rankings. This list is based on worldwide rankings, not US rankings. However, it should give you a general idea since almost all of these sites are solely based on conservative American politics. Not much has changed since 2011, just a little reshuffling, with a few omissions and new entries. If you want to know what’s happening with conservative politics in the US, this list should keep you busy for a while.

This list took a long time to put together. I used several ways to double-check my findings. I searched out a few other lists, compared them to today’s Alexa rank, and made a few adjustments. The bottom-line is, you won’t find a more comprehensive list of the top 100 Conservative Websites anywhere.

Note: Many conservatives will argue that Fox News is more of a main-line Republican news outlet and not a true conservative website. And I agree. But still, most people think of them as conservative, so they made the list.

    Tea Party Brief, according to Alexa, should be placed at #96

    Thanks!

    • April 16, 2012 at 11:13 am

      You are correct sir. According to Alexa, Tea Party Brief is number 169,815 today, which would put it at number 96 on the list. I’ll see what I can do to fix that. Maybe I’ll just extend the list to 101 top conservative sites, and squeeze it in where it belongs. Thanks for visiting, and commenting.

        Restoring Liberty (joemiller.us) is 57,320 (international) and 8,659 (national) on Alexa putting us at 59th on your list. Please add us. Additionally, we would suggest that your “national ranking” base its ranking on the national, not international rankings.

        • May 26, 2013 at 7:30 am

          Wow- Restoring Liberty is 49,374 today. It seems to be growing fast.

          When they did this list in 2012, that site may not have been ranked so well. Either way, it is worth a mention, and a place on the list.

          Thank you for stopping by and mentioning it.

    I just located other individuals that ranked (via Alexa) liberal sites and there numbers seem to be significantly “lower” which means more hits/visitors? If they do have more hits/visitors what conclusions if any can be drawn from their “higher” rankings?

  3. June 6, 2012 at 12:59 am

    American Renaissance should also be added at #62. It is at 73380

    I’m pretty sure the Personal Liberty Digest should be in there in the late 30s.

  5. August 18, 2012 at 9:55 pm

    I think Opine Needles should be on the list. What do you think?

    • August 19, 2012 at 5:39 am

      Not yet my friend. Opine Needles ranks 22-million and some change (Alexa rank is key). I saw your about page, and I can see that your heart is in the right place. Keep up the good work and someday you will see your site name on this list (right under mine). Good luck and thank you for stopping by and commenting.

    FYI: Tea Party Brief is now RedFlag Newswire (currently is number 150,983 today)

    Thanks!

    So who belongs in number 7?

    • November 8, 2012 at 5:05 am

      Michael Save belongs at #7. It took me a while to figure that out. I don’t know how it got deleted. But it’s fixed now. Thanks for pointing that out!

  8. November 7, 2012 at 8:06 pm

    Hi Ken,

    Any idea what happened to DBPK? Should we take the torch and maintain a list on your site or on RedFlagNews?

    • November 8, 2012 at 5:08 am

      I don’t know what happened to DBKP. I thought they were doing pretty good (837,000 Alexa rank). Anyway, we’ll be glad to take over!

  9. November 8, 2012 at 1:15 am

    The updated and quarterly maintained list is now on RedFlag News… http://redflagnews.com/top-100-conservative/

    Another one to add to the list – http://benswann.com/

    “Ben Swann spent 14 years working as a journalist in broadcast news, (most recently as a FOX anchor in Cincinnati) has won two Emmy Awards and two Edward R. Murrow awards, and has realized for a while now that the mainstream media is not interested in telling the truth. Ben is taking a stand and going independent and online.“

    Thanks for all the work you’ve been doing here over the years Ken, this is a great way to find great sites!
