Notes:
-----------------------------
Start date of blog is the current blog and not any previous incarnation of that blog or bloggers connected with it.

Blogs without any posts for 3 months are removed to the Defunct? list.

Alexa (international not nz) ranking approximate average daily traffic equivalent:
0.5m=c.500, 1m=c.280, 1.5m=c.250, 2m=c.220, 2.5m=c.120, 3m=c.100, 3.5m=c.70, 4m=c.60, 5m=c.50, 6m=c.40, 7m=c.30, 8-10m=c.20, No data=c.10. Site counter if available will be used instead of Alexa if credible. If Alexa data includes break-down of blogs on a platform then that percentage is used, otherwise all blogs within a website are taken as half (x0.5) of main page traffic.

If ttlb link score is n/a then technorati authority is doubled in lieu. Because of credibility issues with ttlb the ttlb link score cannot be more than the technorati authority: such instances indicated by "(max. x)".

Some comments regarding TBR.cc (Ian Wishart's blog)

- the authors' ideological position should be "Christian, Right, National" NOT "destiny" !!

- The figures do not sum traffic to both addresses (http://TBR.cc + http://briefingroom.typepad.com)

- You've misspelt "The Briefing Room"

Tim Selwyn said...

Sorry. Will remedy situation - though traffic issue will take longer.

Tim Selwyn said...

Richard: nice blog, but it's about sport and not our definition of public discourse - same with the Aucklandista. Copied from Wellington too - that's unforgivable!

How'd I get to be "right" this month? Did I tip my hand somehow? Was it the post saying how bail was a right?
