I only just found this.
Back on the 21st of November, the chaps at UKNetMonitor put together an analysis of the sites that they believe to be ‘relevant, significant and influential’ in the context of the news clipping and monitoring that they do for their clients. They ended up with 100 sites that they’ve regularly clipped interesting posts from.

Here’s what they had to say:
It’s that time of year when we review where we have found what believe to be relevant, significant and influential comments about our clients. Not a serious analysis but here is our league table of the top 100 sites we have clipped from in the last 12 months. Watching the web underlines the enormous diversity of opinion that is being expressed and read online. Not really a comment on Web 2.0, but what is clear is the rise of the social networks, and the continued dominance of the discussion forums over straight blogs as the crucibles of where corporate reputations are being made and broken, where products are hyped or trashed. Unsurprisingly, these are also the hardest to keep a handle on, and highlight the weakness of relying on a few Google to Alerts as an effective approach to web monitoring. Anyway, here is the top 100 websites we have clipped interesting posts from this year. For all you webmasters and moderators out there, the message is “It’s worth it. Some-one is listening”.
Brand Republic, BBC.co.uk, Telecom.Paper, Discussions.Apple.com… right on.
Here’s a snapshot of where we appear:
Obviously we’re quoted under our old name, SMS Text News.
