June ’12 – NZ blogs sitemeter ranking

Some commenters have noticed very low rankings for their favourite blog. Usually this has turned out to be the result of removal of a sitemeter from the blog, with a resulting decline in visit numbers recorded. I try to check and remove such blogs from the database when the numbers approach zero. But if you notice strange numbers please let me know so I can check.

Here are the rankings of New Zealand blogs with publicly available statistics for June 2012. Please note, the system is automatic and relies on blogs having sitemeters which allow public access to the stats. There are now over 260 blogs on the list, although I am weeding out those which are no longer active or have removed public access to sitemeters.

I have listed the blogs in the table below, together with monthly visits and page view numbers for June, 2012.

Meanwhile I am still keen to hear of any other blogs with publicly available sitemeter or visitor stats that I have missed. Contact me if you know of any or wish help adding publicly available stats to your bog.

    thanks for your efforts in putting together this list. Up until I found you on WhaleOil, I had had some difficulty in finding NZ blogs. Cheers :-)

  9. Kittens are always a winner. By the way, you have “Tararua District Library” up there twice (the other time is misspelled).

  10. Pingback: Boy | movie reviews and ratings, movie trailers coming soon, movie dvd releases

  11. How disappointing that the top two listed blogs are open sewers while the third is a septic tank.

    Lifes to short to subject yourself to unnecessary sewage so I avoid all three top listed blogs and it makes for a much better internet experience.
