No Comments

I have included the reality check image because of a recent experience where I was accused of refusing to include a blog on this list because I disagreed with them politically. Not true! I pointed out to the blogger that he had a statcounter installed – if he allowed public access then his blog could be included (Public access is required as the system is automated). His response was that he didn’t trust his statcounter results!

OK – I have left him to stew in his own self-proclaimed superiority in visit numbers compared with other New Zealand blogs. But meanwhile I must assure bloggers that I have absolutely no interest in their politics, beliefs, ideological commitments, sexual orientation, etc. Just in obtaining an automatic objective listing of activity for New Zealand blogs. All are welcome.


Here are the rankings of New Zealand blogs with publicly available statistics for April 2012. Please note, the system is automatic and relies on blogs having sitemeters which allow public access to the stats. There are now over 260 blogs on the list, although I am weeding out those which are no longer active or have removed public access to sitemeters.

I have listed the blogs in the table below, together with monthly visits and page view numbers for April, 2012.

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.
