    What is the yardstick and standard for measuring and ranking them. I know Alexa will be one, but that changes from time to time.

    Everyone wants to be in the list based on some perceived parameters. Lets come up with a definite guide. it will help our growth, development and zeal for success.

    I think something is really amiss here! The numbers are fleeting and no. 1 seemed doctored. Check back on Alexa and tell me who rules the Nigerian Blogosphere? 😀
