March ’13 – NZ blogs sitemeter ranking

Tblogger3333shere are now over 280 blogs on the list, although I am weeding out those which are no longer active or have removed public access to sitemeters. (Let me know if I weed out yours by mistake, or get your stats wrong).

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 March 2013. Ranking is by visit numbers.

Every month I get queries from people wanting their own blog included. I encourage and 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. This is particularly helpful to those wondering how to set up sitemeters.

I have listed the blogs in the table below, together with monthly visits and page view numbers for March, 2013.

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

  4. Hi from Quote Unquote – my Sitemeter shows 5167 page loads for March and 4262 unique visits, not the 96 and 100 you list. Is this a problem with how it is displayed on the blog?

  5. Thanks for letting me know, Stephen. I have amended the table to out you at 54a. Don’t know what went wrong but I will check the spreadsheets tomorrow to see if there is a fault.

    Statcounter is a bit of a bugger to work with at the moment as it keeps switching back to daily data from monthly.

    Sorry for the mistake.

  8. Hans, You need to make your stats public – have a look at the FAQ ( http://openparachute.wordpress.com/2012/07/31/nz-blog-rankings-faq/)

    I think you were originally on the list using a different statcounter but would have disappeared when you changed counter.

    If you install a suitable counter and/or allow public access could you let me know its HTML!

    Thanks.

  10. Stephen, found the problem.

    You had switched from Sitemeter to Statcounter and my database was still recording your sitemeter data.

    Fixed it now – removed the sitemeter link and installed the Statcounter one.
