New York Times Tops Technorati Attention Index

bullhorn.jpgOur colleagues over at BayNewser have Technorati’s list of mainstream media Web sites that get the most hits from bloggers, which they have titled the “Attention Index.”

YouTube is number one on the list (although we agree with BayNewser that the classification of that site as “mainstream media” is a bit of a stretch) and The New York Times‘s site is number two. Another New York-based paper, The Wall Street Journal ranks number four. The top five is rounded out by guardian.co.uk at #3 and The Washington Post at #5.

There are lots of other New York-based news outlets on the list, including FOX News (#12), Time (#16) and The New York Daily News (#19).
