May ’13 – NZ blogs sitemeter ranking

There are now over 280 blogs on the list, although I am weeding out those which are no longer active or have removed public access to sitemeters. Let me know if I weed out yours by mistake, or get your stats wrong. Often bloggers will unintentionally delete the site meters when they refurbish their blog.

Please note, the system is automatic and relies on blogs having sitemeters which allow public access to the stats. There are also a few bloggers who have sent me their links but have not yet set up public access on their sitemeters.

Here are the rankings of New Zealand blogs with publicly available statistics for May 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 May, 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

    Thanks for this . Any idea why kiwipolitico and the civilian are not listed ?

  4. Don’t remember either of these blog requesting inclusion, Eric. And don’t think they have a site meter allowing public access to their stats, either.

    This whole list is run automatically – but does require something like a Sitemeter or Statcounter on the blog which allows public access.

    I would be keen to include these, or any other blogs – if you have links why not encourage them to install site meters?
