August ’15 – NZ blogs sitemeter ranking

experts


Problems with Sitemeter

The problems with SiteMeter are still bad  this month. I gave some of the background to these problems in my post Time to give up on Sitemeter. If you wish to query the information in the table I suggest you check out the data in the SiteMeter pages.

I think some bloggers have removed their Sitemeters. I am blogs that don’t’ show any remaining links to Sitemeter.

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.

Bravenet stats no longer allows access

At least to the monthly data. It is restricting that access to paying subscriber (Bravenet Pro). This affects the 14 blogs listed below so I cannot include them in this ranking list at the moment unless I can find an alternative. If any of these bloggers want to try a different stats counter I recommend Statcounter. Have a look at the NZ Blog Rankings FAQs if you need help with this.

Pt England Scribes Virtual North
Korero Pt England Kiwi Chronicles
Digital learning Making IT Happen
King’s High School Library But Now
ICTPD Football Tragic NZ
Manaia Kindergarten Anticipating future impacts
Sleeping with books Moving the crowd

Although there are now over 300 blogs on the list, although I am weeding out those which are no longer active or have removed public access to sitemeters.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