December ’13 – NZ blogs sitemeter ranking

happy-new-year-2014

Image credit: Best Wallpaper HD

There are now almost 300 blogs on the list, although I am weeding out those which are no longer active or have removed public access to sitemeters.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 December2013. 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

  1. Pingback: TDB retains its position as NZs largest progressive blog « The Daily Blog

  2. Looks like Sitemeter was playing up yet again so heaps of sites are much lower on here than they are in reality. So glad I switched to Stat Counter – SO much more reliable and they are not even paying me to say this.

  3. I agree Enzo; my site apparently only got ~2000 views last month according to SiteMeter when I know it was more like >4500. I may have to see how it goes this month.
