There's a relatively new search engine out there just for law blogs: Blawg Search by Justia. This is a good alternative to Google blog search or IceRocket, neither of which is limited to a particular type of blog such as law blogs. I sometimes use Google blog search to find extremely recent commentary on brand new decisions, and Blawg Search should be an even better tool for that. Blawg Search also has an extensive directory of law blogs organized by topic and jurisdiction.
Actually, I have to assume that many of you already know about Blawg Search, because as of today, this blog is listed as Justia's 12th most popular law blog of all time based on "the number of visits to the Blawg from the BlawgSearch search engine and directory listing pages." More of Justia's statistics on top law blogs by day, week, and month, as well as historical data back to October 2006, are available here. I'm not doing too bad for May; last time I checked, my site was the
17th 13th most popular law blog this month. That's pretty good considering that Justia tracks around 2,000 law blogs.
