December ’12 – NZ blogs sitemeter ranking

bloggers

Credit: The Concrete Playground

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 There are now over 280 blogs on the list, although I am weeding out those which are no longer active or have removed public access to sitemeters.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 December 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 December, 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. Many thanks for the service you provide in compiling these Ken, and a very Happy New Year to you and those close to you.

  2. Yeah, as with inventory2: a great service, Ken. All the best for 2013.

  3. Does the whale fiddle the numbers somehow? Or are we really a bunch of sad right wingers?

  4. Hi Ken,
    Just letting you know that amiria [blog] is currently appearing at #267 as well as #13. I think this will be my old sitemeter account, which I am no longer using…Have just put in a request for account deletion with them, but not sure how long it will take them to address it…
    Thanks!

  5. Hi Ken,

    Another couple for you..

    Avalon’s Guide: emigrate to New Zealand is also on this list twice (as it was in November) and both paikea’s blog and PIkea’s Blog (same url) are on the list. Also MacMillan.org.nz shoud be McMillan.org.nz (the url’s right, just not the name).

  6. Thanks, Andrew.

    I’ll make corrections to the database before next month.

  7. No I do not fiddle anything…and frankly I am sick to death of people accusing me of that.

  8. No I do not fiddle anything…and frankly I am sick to death of people accusing me of that.

    Well, you have no problem accusing honest climate scientists of fiddling data and conclusions.
    Goes around, comes around etc..

  9. Hi Ken. http://www.statehighwayone.com has dropped off your radar? Let me know if you’re having trouble getting access to the Sitemeter stats.

  10. Hi Ryan, Can’t see a sitemeter on the blog. Has it been removed somehow? That often happens when bloggers tart things up..

    Anyway, could you check your sitemeter and send me the link. I’ll re-add it to the database.

  11. Thanks Ryan, I’ll fix that today.
