This is a ranking by number of hits, I take it?  Their hits are largely
produced by Yahoo links.  Somehow, WSWS has pulled off a remarkable coup by
convincing Yahoo that it is the official representative of world socialist
opinion.  Thus, if you read news stories on Yahoo, and look at the list of
related stories, there will very often be a link to a story on the WSWS.
There will never be a link to a story at www.workers.org.  I agree that the
WSWS articles are often pretty good.
