I understand, from the feedback I get, some people use this NZ Blog Ranking list as an aid in browsing NZ Blogs. Another argument to include your blog here?

Every month I get queries after posting these rankings. Some people are checking for mistakes. Others are wanting their own blog included. I 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.

Here are the rankings of New Zealand blogs with publicly available statistics for August 2012. Please note, the system is automatic and relies on blogs having sitemeters which allow public access to the stats. There are now over 270 blogs on the list, although I am weeding out those which are no longer active or have removed public access to sitemeters.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 August, 2012.

MISSING STATS:

The Sitemeter stats counter appears to be playing up, for at least some blogs, lately. Stats were not showing in the database for some high ranking blog. I have corrected this where possible, but the following three blogs are still giving a message at Sitemeter:

“The report is currently unavailable.
Please wait a few minutes and try again”

amiria[blog], ZNO, Joe Hendren

The current problems with Sitemeter may explain why some blogs stats seem a little low.

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.
