September ’14 – NZ blogs sitemeter ranking

education-bloggers


PLEASE NOTE: Sitemeter is playing up again making it impossible to automatically get the stats for some blogs – those I list below. Maybe more bloggers will shift to StatCounter or other counter.

No stats could be found for these blogs:

Works in progress Sportsfreak
Weakly Whirled News Infectious thoughts
Two Minutes Sport Science Behind the Curtain
Wysiwygpurple’s Blog Grumpollie
Stats Chat Louis’ Outlook
Webweaver’s world West City Darts
Social Media and the 2014 General Election A conservative perspective
Love your work Save our schools NZ
Today is my birthday The Meaning of Trees
This Mum Rocks

There are now over 300 blogs on the list, although I am weeding out those which are no longer active or have removed public access to sitemeters.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

  1. Reblogged this on Talking Auckland and commented:
    A quieter month despite the election but still in the top 40.

  2. Hey Ken,

    I thought I put my stats tracker on Super Rugby Tips website with the revamp of it, any ideas?

  3. I think the problem is Sitemeter playing up, Scotty. it seems to be performing better now so I will amend this list to use the current data.

    If it keeps playing up I suggest you replace it with Statcounter (and of course let me know the new url).

  4. It is public, Thomas, but it doesn’t provide any data – just giving the message “The report is currently unavailable. Please wait a few minutes and try again.”

    Or in the summary:

    “Total 16,375
    Average Per Day –
    Average Visit Length –
    Last Hour 0
    Today 0
    This Week 0 ”

    There are about 20 blogs this is happening for at the moment.

    My suggestion is to change to Statcounter.
