The most discussed news articles on Swedish blogs in 2011

Sweden’s four biggest newspapers, Expressen, Aftonbladet, Dagens Nyheter and Svenska Dagbladet, might be different in many aspects, but they have something in common: Their websites all use Twingly to connect readers with the blogosphere.

So which articles did create the biggest buzz and engagement within the blogosphere in 2011? We had a look at the stats! Here is a list of the top 5 articles from each of the 4 newspapers which received the most incoming links from blogs.

Note that on each article page you’ll find the Twingly widget where you can see what the blogosphere said. And sorry, but it’s all in Swedish.

    I find this very interesting and would love to see this updated each month, just like the books. I have some questions:
    1) Why is not GP Göteborgsposten in the list?
    2) Do Expressen and Aftonbladet actually use twingly? When I have linked to them I have not seen any links to my blog on their web-page.
