May ’15 – NZ blogs sitemeter ranking

There are now over 300 blogs on the list, although I am weeding out those which are no longer active or have removed public access to sitemeters.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 May 2015. 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 Southern Auckland and commented:
    A top 20 finish (19) as the Talking Auckland chapter concludes and the Talking Southern Auckland chapter begins.

    I will post tomorrow on the changes to the blog and the reason for them.

    In the meantime a big thank you to readers and a VERY big thank you to the commenters. Without both the blog would not be possible.

    And as always guest posts no matter how long or short are welcome

  2. Auckland Transport Blog (#5) dropping to just a third of its usual traffic? Something seems weird there.

    Like

  3. I see that Glen – but that is what the Sitemeter says. Perhaps there are problems with the Sitemeter – others have noticed problems. Maybe you should look at changing to Statcounter.

  4. Not my site; just a regular follower. Given all the problems Sitemeter experiences (was the same on my Cycling in Chch site), I wonder whether it’s worth warning people about this on the FAQ.

    Mike Reddell has a blog called croaking cassandra which i know gets a few visits because i visit it most days but i don’t see it in this list. Is it possible that the list is incomplete?

    Like

  6. Of course it is incomplete, Stephen. It relies on blogs having a site meter that allows public access to the stats, and letting me know it’s URL.

    Could you pass on the URL for the blog and I will check if it has accessible stats.
