In this presidential election year, with so much attention directed to the Internet, what’s the No.1 political site?

It’s WorldNetDaily.com, according to the Amazon.com-affiliated ratings service Alexa.com, ahead of well-financed competitors Salon and Slate.

“This is quite an honor when you think about how many websites there are in the world offering political commentary,” said Joseph Farah, founder and editor of WND. “But it’s even more thrilling because we’ve never considered WND primarily a political site. It is first and foremost a newssite – the largest independent, full-service newssite in the world.”

WorldNetDaily has earned many No. 1 honors in its seven-year history, says Farah.

It is also listed as the No. 1 conservative Internet site, though Farah is quick to point out that he does not consider either himself, nor his independent news service, “conservative.”

It is also the No. 1 “independent” news service on the Net – meaning, of all those news sources developed exclusively for the Internet, it is the most popular and most highly trafficked.

Ranking.com also lists WND No. 1 in the category of “News, Web Directories, Headline Indices.”

WND also is ranked No. 1 in Alexa’s News and Media category.
