Ranking of Top Mormon-Themed Web Sites and Blogs – 2006

John Dehlin Mormon Stories

For a Sunstone Presentation I’m giving in August at the 2006 SLC Sunstone Symposium, I gathered together the rankings of all the prominent Mormon-themed web sites and blogs that I could find. The data comes from http://alexa.org/. The ranking represents world ranking on the Internet.

If there are any major web sites or blogs that I have omitted, please advise. Also, I’d love to hear thoughts/analysis on this list from anyone who is interested in sharing.
