Highly Visible SF Markets

I’ve been looking at markets for short science fiction, trying to see which are “prominent” or “highly visible.”  I used four different filters, which came up with different results.

Markets with stories that received Hugo nominations for 2007:

Market Nominations
Asimovs 10
Jim Baen’s Universe 1
F&SF 1
Strange Horizons 1
Interzone 1
PS Publishing 1

Markets with stories that received Nebula nominations for 2007:

F&SF 7
Asimovs 5
Helix 3
Realms of Fantasy 1
Cosmos 1
Writers of the Future 1
Analog 1

Markets with stories appearing in the Year’s Best SF for 2006:

Markets with five or more stories receiving “honorable mentions” in the Year’s Best SF for 2006:

I’m not sure what this does, except maybe to sort out the very busy SF short fiction universe.
