Blawg rankings

Paul Caron's 2008 law-blog rankings are up and available, here.  As usual, no one comes close to Reynolds, and Prawfs is in a tight cluster of 6 (with Leiter, Bainbridge, Balkin, etc.) in the "top 14" (sounds like the U.S. News rankings, doesn't it?).  Any thoughts about, or reactions to, the list?  What does it say (if anything) about the state and future of the law-blogging "thing"?

These rankings are not really very useful for the most part:
Instapundit, Hugh Hewitt, Althouse are not really playing the same game as Balkininization, Volokh, Co-Op, Opinio Juris, Conglomerate, and Prawfs. The tax and patent blogs are geared primarily to practicing lawyers; admittedly Sentencing LP is a bit harder to pigeonhole.

You guys are less popular than a tax lawyer!? Ouch!

Just looking at the list of "top 14" blogs made me wonder the extent to which more content (i.e., more frequent posts) generally results in more visitors.
