September ’13 – NZ blogs sitemeter ranking

Blogging_quote

There are now over 280 blogs on the list, although I am weeding out those which are no longer active or have removed public access to sitemeters.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).

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.

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 September 2013. Ranking is by visit numbers. I have listed the blogs in the table below, together with monthly visits and page view numbers.

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

  3. Great to see Eco-fascist blog The Standard at Number 3, the site that bans you for quoting the IPCC

    Like

  4. Well according to your mate Richard Treadgold his little blog would be at number 1 – and he bans you for all sorts of the ins. But mainly for supporting science and scientists.

  5. He hasn’t banned you Ken? Surely not!

  6. Treadgold posted a day or two ago after a long absence.

    I had a real belly-laugh this morning when reading his claim that It’s delightful indeed that the conversation continues so well without me.

    Yes indeed, it involved Andy kicking metaphorical cans around in the tumbleweeds while Richard Cummings has a conversation with himself (complete, of course, with multiple hyper-links )

  7. Still, these two must be getting something out of this activity. I can’t fathom what though.

  8. We get to expose the parasitic vermin that hover around the climate change activist industry, and show them for the weapon grade liars that they are.

    It gives me a lot of pleasure Ken

  9. Eventually Ken, there will be repercussions, but I guess you’ll be dead by then

  10. So, this exposure is to each other – in a lonely internet silo? Creepy.

  11. Creepy is something you should be very familiar with Ken

  13. Hi Ken, despite various communications to you, Cycling in Chch is still not showing up on your list. Is there something wrong with accessing the Sitemeter on my site?
    P.S: having to login to WordPress.com just to send you a note is also a nuisance when my default email address is a different one.

    Like

  14. I don’t recall any email from you Glen. I will send you my email address.

    Anyway I can access your Sitemeter OK so I will put your blog in the database today which means it will show up next moth.

    I will also see if I can get your data for last month and add it to the current ranking.

  15. OK Glen. Your blog is in the database and the above ranking has been modified to include it.

  16. My comment about the up-to-date details of my site, which is listed here, isn’t published. I’m sorry if this isn’t the right place to request such updates, but it did seem like the natural place.

  17. Will you add my Blog for October 2013? I started my blog on the 21st of October. Please reply.

  18. Lofabngas – I am happy to add your bog, but first you need to install a site meter or counter which allows public access to your stats. Have a look at my FAQs http://openparachute.wordpress.com/2012/07/31/nz-blog-rankings-faq/

    When you have done that let me know and let me know the url for your counter.

  19. My “Truthseeker” blog (truthseekernz.blogspot.co.nz) hasn’t been very active lately in terms of posts, though i did post an analysis of the Auckland Council elections that people may find interesting. It’s a repeat of the effort in 2010, highlighting how First Past the Post produces very unsatisfactory results.

    http://truthseekernz.blogspot.co.nz/2013/10/auckland-council-elections-2013-voters.html

    Last month (October) I had 2,298 page views according to Google Analytics.
