June ’15 – NZ blogs sitemeter ranking

comments


Big problems with Sitemeter

The problems with SiteMeter are even worse this month. No data could be obtained for about 50 blogs using SiteMeter. People have also reported strange results. So if you wish to query the information in the table I suggest you check out the data in the SiteMeter pages.

If you are using SiteMeter, and especially if you find you page isn’t included this month, I suggest you consider transferring to a more reliable counter like StatCounter. Have a look at the NZ Blog Rankings FAQs if you need help with this.


There are now over 300 blogs on the list, although I am weeding out those which are no longer active or have removed public access to sitemeters.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 June 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. My Sitemeter visits number is about right. The page read figure is curious. You report, presumably from Sitemeter I had 56,000 page reads. My server record is way lower, but WordPress also shows something called “syndicated views” in stats and that does add up to around 56,000. I wonder how Sitemeter found that number, I have to dig around like crazy to get it.

  2. I have moved both Dark Brightness and Shattered Light to statcounter. That should help… there are counters now at http://blog.pukeko.net.nz and http://photo.pukeko.net.nz

  3. Thanks Pukeko – I have entered this in the spreadsheets.

  4. I dropped Sitemeter half-way through the month due to a redirect loop. Bill: if SiteMeter is showing you lots of duplicate hits, you might have had the same problem I did. It was showing me the same visitor making either a dozen simultaneous visits or series of single visitors each on 100 pageviews per visit. None of it made sense.

    My StatCounter stats are here: https://statcounter.com/p8432656/summary/daily-rpu-labels-bar-lastmonth/

    I should have been on 12,121 pageviews and 10,024 visits.

  5. I’d bet that any of the stats above, if they have more than 2-3 page views per visit, are just out of whack. On mine, it inflated both visits AND page-views, but inflated the latter by way more.
