Media research firm Nielsen/NetRatings said yesterday that it is emphasizing how long visitors spend at Web sites, rather than how many times they view a page, when comparing sites. The move shakes up Web site popularity rankings, favoring sites such as AOL, Yahoo and others that attract heavy users of e-mail and instant messaging over sites such as Google and Fox Interactive Media's MySpace. The new form of measurement won't change where advertisers put their dollars online, said analyst Debra Aho Williamson of Internet research firm EMarketer Inc. But it might change the way Web sites are structured.

A while back, at my most recent appearance on Sheilah Kast's Maryland Morning show on WYPR-FM, she asked me about my attacks on the peeververein: Are not your posts just as dogmatic and extreme in tone as those you deplore?  My wife got a throaty chortle out of hearing me challenged.  I summoned my wits to offer a distinction: that I consult lexicographers and linguists for evidence on usage rather than relying on mere personal opinion. But yes, the attack mode is congenial.

The well-publicized "Who Blew Up WWE Chairman Mr. McMahon?" story line has boosted the ratings for Raw, at least initially. Monday's episode reportedly drew a 4.2 rating, an increase over last week's 3.8. The over-the-top angle also has resulted in a huge increase in traffic for wwe.com. As reported on cnbc.com, the total page views for wwe.com on June 12, the day after McMahon's limo exploded on Raw, were 36.8 million, with 2 million daily unique visitors. That's far more than the Web site's three-month average of 14.3 million page views and 1 million unique visitors.

To the readers, It's been a fun six months here at the Ridiculous Report, but it's time to sign off. I'm going back to being a full-time reporter focusing on local issues and won't have much time for musings on the various national political items of the day. That means less time spent on Sarah Palin and Joe Biden jokes, and more time rooting out untold stories in Baltimore. On the blog, I've done my best to be fair and independent and point out silliness on both the left and the right.

Baltimore provided one of the nation's strongest TV and online audiences for the inauguration of President Barack Obama on Tuesday, just as it did during the primaries, caucuses and debates last year. Baltimore had the fourth-largest audience in the nation with 44.3 percent of all TV households watching live inaugural coverage between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. Tuesday. That translates to about 487,000 homes. The Raleigh-Durham market in North Carolina was the top audience with 51.2 percent of homes tuned to live coverage.

Tony Lombardi's answering machine ends with the message, "Remember, do what you love and love what you do." Which pretty much sums up why the now-47-year-old Perry Hall man quit his job leasing equipment to corporations three years ago to go full time into blogging about his favorite team, the Baltimore Ravens. "It doesn't pay what I used to make, but I'm optimistic," said Lombardi, whose business card reads simply "Tony Lombardi, fan." Page views of his Ravens24X7.com are up to 3 million this month, up from 40,000 when he launched it five years ago after encouragement from friends who enjoyed the opinionated e-mails he would send them about football and other topics.

Maybe it's because it could help unravel the mysteries of the universe. Maybe it reminds us of Star Wars. Maybe it's the reassurance it provides - knowing, in these fearful times, that our government, even if it can't find Osama bin Laden, can pinpoint and strike an object traveling at 23,000 mph 83 million miles away. For whatever reason, NASA's dead-on hit on the comet Tempel 1, and the images of that collision, are attracting viewers across the country - maybe not as many as Revenge of the Sith, but some of the most respectable numbers ever for a real-life outer space event.

In a bookstore, Charles Bock's bleak urban drama Beautiful Children weighs in at 432 pages and will set you back $25. On the Internet, thousands of people got it for nothing. Publishers eager to expand their customer base have begun offering free downloads or streams of entire books - for a limited time - to spark word-of-mouth promotion and prompt readers to buy other books in the authors' catalogues. The move is the latest instance of a centuries-old industry experimenting with the Internet's vast reach to promote its products.

After a day of false speculation resulting in millions of page views for web sites around country, Will and Jada Smith issued a statement Tuesday saying their marriage is not in trouble and they are not separating. Here is the statement: "Although we are reluctant to respond to these kinds of press reports, the rumors circulating about our relationship are completely false. We are still together, and our marriage is intact. " A spokesperson for the Baltimore School for the Arts graduate Jada Pinkett-Smith also spiked reports that the actress was involved with Marc Anthony, a costar on TNT's "Hawthorne.

The shingle-style house straddles a hillside, its windows offering sunny views in three directions. Games, books and DVDs topple from living-room shelves. In the kitchen, a young mom helps her 7-year-old daughter feed fabric through a sewing machine. The place seems more all-American home than hideout, but fewer than 20 people know that Michelle Malkin, mother of two young children, loyal wife of 15 years -- oh, and scourge and sometime nightmare of liberals in her newspaper columns, TV spots, books and writings on the Web -- moved to this place in the Baltimore area a year and a half ago. If you're seeking a living symbol of America's rancorous political divide, look no further than Malkin, one of the most popular and provocative voices on the modern right.
