To round off 2009 I have done a ranking of New Zealand blogs according to their RSS subscription counts The results for the top 100 blogs are in the table below. Results for all 780 NZ blogs on my database can be downloaded as a word file (see january-10-rss-subs). Data for this was downloaded on 31st December 2009.
The blogs were ranked separately for Google Reader and Bloglines. An average of these two ranks was then used to produce the final rank in the table. (The pdf file includes the separate ranks for the two aggregators). I used the vaerge rank instead of total counts because:
(Total counts woud have been another way of ranking but would produce a similar rank to Google Reader as the numbers for this are larger).
The two aggregators could be considered as separate sources of information with their own peculiarities, clients, etc.
