294/474: Looks Like a Law School Class Rank, Doesn’t It?

No. 561 Once in blue moon, I look at my AVVO blog ranking.  On January 6, 2011, PLBT placed 294th out of 474 blogs ranked by traffic.  That’s not quite in the upper half, but its getting there. So far as I know, however, PLBT is the number one legal blog in Western Pennsylvania. The Alexa […]
