October ’13 – NZ blogs sitemeter ranking

blogger3333s (1)There are now almost 300 blogs on the list, although I am weeding out those which are no longer active or have removed public access to sitemeters.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 October 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. Stephen, if you want to get your blog into the ranking list have a look at the FAQs – http://openparachute.wordpress.com/2012/07/31/nz-blog-rankings-faq/.

  4. lolitasbrother

    Can this Whale Oil figure be true. Like half of New Zealand went in there. I don’t believe it. Nobody I know, except me has heard of whale Oil

  5. <i.Can this Whale Oil figure be true. Like half of New Zealand went in there.

    Shhh, the Oily One’s stats are one of NZ’s dirty little secrets.

  6. The Whale Oil stats shot up because of the Len Brown story. On the day the story broke, the server was overloaded.

    No body has heard of whale oil except the thousands that visit his site or have seen him on prime time TV talking about the Len Brown story,

  7. Will my blog be added in the November Edition?
