February ’14 – NZ blogs sitemeter ranking

new-blog-kitten

Yes, we are interested in including your new blog in these rankings. Credit: The Health Culture

There are now almost 300 blogs on the list, although I am weeding out those which are no longer active or have removed public access to sitemeters.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 February 2014. 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

  2. I think mine are out here; I count 15k and change rather than 19k at Offsetting this month. https://www.sitemeter.com/?a=stats&s=sm6offsettingbehaviour&r=33

  3. I think I can see why, Eric.

    The data from Sitemeter is extracted from the traffic projection page https://www.sitemeter.com/?a=stats&s=sm6offsettingbehaviour&r=25

    – not the previous 12 months page https://www.sitemeter.com/?a=stats&s=sm6offsettingbehaviour&r=33.

    Not the best but I can’t find a way of extracting the data from the table in the later page. I have generally found the data is similar when extracted on the 1st of the month but the data for yours does seem to be running high (18k at the moment). Others using Sitemeter may be in the same boat?

    Would you prefer I use your StatCounter data instead – I see you have a link for it instead – this uses the actual data in the monthly table? This was about 17k for you in February.

    StatCounter does seem more reliable – and usually a little higher.

  5. Most of the time it won’t make any difference. I had a big January spike due to Seamus’s WASP hitting the big ODI test series with India. Sitemeter then would have projected from days that included WASP.

    I’m happiest for you to keep using whatever best keeps things comparable across sites. If everybody else is on projected, then it’s kinda a moving average measure that’ll be right on average but not in every single instance; I’m cool with that. So if I got a February blip up, others would have had blips up in other months when they got an odd spike. If everybody else goes to StatCounter, I’m fine with that too. Had just noticed an error in my favour and felt guilty about it.

    Actually, scratch that. Use my projected monthly figures from the last hour’s traffic. That currently has me at 92k visits for March because of a tweet link from SMBC’s @ZachWeiner :>

  10. The New Zeal blog (#9) has moved, and I can’t see any NZ related content there apart from the page title. I think it should be removed from the list
