"How did that happen?"

It happened because you write a great blog.

Congratulations indeed. Some hints as to "how it happened" are at this page on the Econolog site.

The rank seems to be based on incoming links from other blogs in their database. Your posts are evidently provoking some discussion. Poor Greg Mankiw is down at number 333...

And now we're at #15.

I think you're right about the incoming links criterion, but it's hard to see how Greg Mankiw could be at 333. Weird.

Yes, it is odd. There are some technical reasons why it could happen [for geeks: they use the URLs from the blog's RSS feed to compare with incoming links. If the RSS feed does not use the same link format as the people making the links (e.g. http://feedburner.com/yourblog/post1.html instead of http://yourblog.com/post1.html), then it won't count as a link.]

However they have a specific exception for Feedburner which Mankiw's blog uses, so I would expect it to still work. It may be that his Feedburner configuration is slightly different than the standard - I get a different type of display when clicking on his RSS feed than my own.

OK, off now to submit my own blog (http://www.knowingandmaking.com/) to Econolog so I can join the competition!

Congrats. Unfortunately the fact that Megan McArdle is in the list casts a lot of doubt on the process.

Kent beat me to it: on that list you're #8 among economics blogs, disqualifying Felix (MarketMovers) and DealBook (NYT finance reporters) and McMegan (economics-free education).

Re: Mankiw. There's no reason to link to him; he provides no marginal utility.
