Good work Tim.

I'd imagine it takes a lot of effort to get this together. That effort is appreciated.

Looks like I'll have to make my stats publicly available as Alexa's evaluation of my traffic is way off. I'm averaging 130 unique visitors per day, not 30.

As the site is a new incarnation of my old blog, www.fritchie.blogspot.com I'm still waiting for others to change their links as well and for the RSS subscriptions to build to what I had before.

I only changed it over at the end of December/beginning of January though, so it's early days.

Once again, great work. It's cool to see a bunch of NZ blogs I didn't know existed :)

Tim Selwyn said...

Frank:
Thanks. Yes - because the Alexa data is approximate I prefer a blog's own stat meter when counting traffic. I will re-calibrate the traffic assumptions shortly with this survey's new data.

Tane said...

Nice work guys, but Alexa's still massively underestimating our traffic, which is kind of annoying. Will talk to the others and see if I can get you some actual hard figures.

Tim Selwyn said...

Tane:
Good-o. IrishBill asked me to change his description from "Labour" - so I'm putting yourself and him as "unionist" if that's OK?

Crusader Rabbit isn't a Kiwi blog.
And the masthead says something different to what you have here.

Tane said...

Hi Tim, thanks for that, I'll go with Green though as they're the folks I usually vote for and it seems to follow the party political format you've got going. I think Irish is the same.

Lee C said...

hi this is a superb idea and it is great to see evidence that your work does 'exist' in the blogosphere. Because ususally 'In the blogosphere, no-one can hear your scream.'!! Lee - Monkey With Typewriter)

Uncensored is not a blog by any definition of a blog.

But you don't seem to have listed Spare Room.

Tim Selwyn said...

Spare room is more quirky/entertainment and amusement than "public discourse". Will review NZBC.

Tim Selwyn said...

Thanks Boris:
Anticapitaliste is on the watch list.

KG:
Removed, cobber.

Asher said...

Nice work again, but yeah, my Alexa stats for Anarchia are way off (possibly the cause of my drop by 30 places from last time!)

I have publically available visitor count, but unfortunately thats only a total, so I guess it'd have to be marked down and then compared a month later or something, which would no doubt be annoying...oh well.

Asher said...

For the record, Anarchia had an average of 65.3 uniques per day in January (the lowest its been in a while, likely due to a lack of regular posting...)

KG said...

Thanks Tim.
Nice job you've done with this,btw.

Anonymous said...

No, not nzbc, I meant Uncensored, which is listed at No 20 but is a website selling a magazine, not a blog at all.

Tim Selwyn said...

Re: Uncensored.

OK, I'll take another look, but I went through it came up with this:

Criteria:
1. regulary updated? - Yes.
2. author-operated website? - Yes.
3. blog format? - It has posts in chronological order and dated so it meets the basic idea of the Wikipedia definition so, - Yes.
4. linked? - Websites link to it, but not many other blogs do, but - Yes.
5. original content? - Yes.
6. public discourse - Information, commentary, opinion etc. designed to engage a public audience on matters of public concern such as current affairs, news, social issues, politics etc. (as opposed to a strictly professional/trade or private blog or a blog not seriously trying to engage with a public audience - eg. Perigo's SOLO libertarian commune - or a blog mainly for the purpose of entertainment/amusement etc. eg. Spare Room) - Yes
7. re:nz - There is not much, but there is definitely NZ content there, so - Yes.

But maybe 4 & 7 aren't strong enough?

This mornign I spot on the TTLB website:

"Update 3/1/08: The Ecosystem is undergoing a major expansion, with many new blogs being added to the system. That means rankings may bounce around a bit --- but the new rankings will be an even more accurate representation of blogs' popularity in the blogosphere as a whole. Put on your seatbelt and enjoy the ride! --- N.Z."

I have had my blog (thorndonbubble.org) go up to a "adorable rodent" level, although I expect this to go back down.

Does this not compromise either the collation of this months results, as well as make comparisons across months with TTLB flawed?

Tim Selwyn said...

Yes I'm in the middle of completing the survey and now that happens! How typical.

It may be a blessing in disguise. I prefer the Technorati authority over the ttlb - so if they are improving it then good. I go on the ttlb number of incoming links rather than their ranking so their changes in that regard will not affect the outcome.
