Newsknife Announces Top News Sites Of 2008

Newsknife, a site that every month rates the world’s top news sites for quality to help news sites improve their performance at Google News, has released its annual list of the most important news sites on Google news for the year. Rankings are compiled by the frequency of stories being included in Google news by a particular source.

Newsknife’s top news sites of 2008 include:

  1. New York Times
  2. Associated Press
  3. Reuters
  4. Washington Post
  5. Voice of America
  6. CNN
  7. Los Angeles Times
  8. Bloomberg
  9. BBC News, UK
  10. Christian Science Monitor
  11. ABC News
  12. FOX News

Newsknife notes that the Associated Press should more properly be regarded as a news source rather than a site as it distributes stories to many news sites across the web.
