February ’16 – NZ blogs sitemeter ranking

UPDATE: 8:00 pm 01/03/1016

My apologies – the first version of this post had mistakes in some of the rankings – hopefully, it is now accurate.

There are about 300 blogs on the list, although I am weeding out those which are no longer active or have removed public access to sitemeters.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 February 2016. Ranking is by visit numbers – and there is a little more room at the top at the moment because of the departure of several high-ranking blogs. 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

  5. Just to clarify because there are some people like Martyn Bradbury telling lies…I voluntarily withdrew from participation in the ranking. I am sick of people accusing me of juking stats…best I just go and do something else.

  7. I can confirm that Cameron removed his statcounter and let me know last month that he would no longer be on the list.

    I have placed a comment at the post on Daily Blog explaining that.

    There was no “technical issue” on this side.

    Of interest, the 2nd rated blog from January (Student Art Guide) also asked to be removed from the list and deleted her statcounter.

    Bloggers obviously have their own reasons for choosing to be on the list or not.

    The rest of us should perhaps be pleased we have all moved up 2 places.🙂
