November ’12 – NZ blogs sitemeter ranking

Credit: The Souls of my Shoes

The New Zealand blogging ecosystem is quite dynamic. New bloggers appear every month, and some old bloggers disappear too. Then some old bloggers reactivate themselves. There are now over 270 blogs on the list, although I am weeding out those which are no longer active or have removed public access to sitemeters.

Please note, the system is automatic and relies on blogs having sitemeters which allow public access to the stats.

Here are the rankings of New Zealand blogs with publicly available statistics for November 2012.

Every month I get queries after posting these rankings. Some people are checking for mistakes. Others are wanting their own blog included. I am happy to respond to queries but have prepared a list of frequently asked questions (FAQs) people can check out. Have a look at NZ Blog Rankings FAQ.

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

You can see data for previous months at Blog Ranks

  1. Just wondering how this list is compiled, I am using sitemeter as well, I have average 40 visits per day, and my site is not ranked here.

  2. Thanks for bringing your blog to my attention, James. I’ll put it into the database today.
