There are now about 90 NZ blogs with publicly accessible sitemeter stats. They are listed in the table below, together with daily visits and page view numbers averaged over the previous 7 days. The data was that given by the NZ blog ranking tool on August 20th. This can be seen at NZ blogs average daily visits.
I have also had a look at how the data for four different sitemeters compare. The daily data was taken for Open Parachute over about 16 days. The sitemeters were StatCounter and Sitemeter (average for previous 7 days), ShinyStat (average for the previous calendar week) and Go Stats (average over the previous month). These were chosen because wordpress.com doesn’t enable the use of javacode required for Extreme and Bravenet. The last two counters are used by a few NZ blogs. Results in the table below.
Average visits/day and page views/day for four counters.
(Normalised to 100% for Sitemeter)
Statcounter and Sitemeter produce very similar results – and are the most frequently used counters in New Zealnd. GoStats gave particularly low visit numbers.
I suggest that if you don’t have a counter on your blog have a look at Sitemeter or StatCounter. And, let me know the link if you decide to make the stats public. I am always interested in hearing about NZ blogs with public sitemeter stats that I have missed. This will enable me to increase the numbers of blogs surveryed on the blog ranking tool.
