NZ blog ranks – July ’09

My latest attempt to rank New Zealand blogs in the tables below.

The methods used are outlined in Ranking methods for NZ blogs. The change is the change in ranking compared with May 09 (NZ blog ranks – June ‘09).

This time I have removed the Alexa NZ rank – with about 400 blogs I find that only around 30% actually have a Alexa NZ rank. I have also removed All the Web link count as it was producing some unrealistically high numbers (over a million links!). This has produced big changes in some cases.

So, briefly the current method involves ranking the blogs according to 9 different ranking indices – 3 page ranking (Google Pagerank, Alexa 3 month rank and Technorati rank), 4 linking indices (Alexa links, Google web links, Google blog links and Yahoo links) and 2 RSS subscription counts (Google reader and Bloglines). The average rankings for the 9 indices are then ranked to produce a final rank.

I also include a separate ranking for each of the 3 broad classes – Page ranking, Links and RSS subscription counts.

If you want a more immediate measure of blog performance have a look at the NZ blog ranking tool. This lists the performance of over about 90 NZ blogs based on actual sitemeter visit statistics. The data is for average visits/day over the previous 7 days. Obviously only the blogs which allow public access to the statistics are included. Data changes daily and one can watch blogs moving up and down the list on a daily basis. Continue reading

The methods used are outlined in Ranking methods for NZ blogs. The change is the change in ranking compared with May 09 (NZ blog sitemeter ranking – May ‘09).

Briefly the method involves ranking the blogs according to 11 different ranking indices – 4 page ranking (Google Pagerank, Alexa 3 month rank, Technorati rank and Alexa NZ rank), 5 linking indices (Alexa links, Google web links, Google blog links, All the Web links and Yahoo links) and 2 RSS subscription counts (Google reader and Bloglines).
