TOTAL BLOGS n=187

-----------------------------
Notes:
-----------------------------
  • Start date of blog is the current blog and not any previous incarnation of that blog or bloggers connected with it (unless the blog has been removed in a complete form to a new format).

  • 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.450, 0.8m=c.300, 1m=c.250, 1.5m=c.150, 2m=c.90, 2.5m=c.80, 3m=c.70, 3.5m=c.60, 4m=c.50, 5m=c.40, 6m=c.30, 7m=c.20, 8-10m=c.15, 10m+=c.10 No data=c.5. 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 appropriate. An nz Alexa ranking will round up, and no nz ranking will round down.

    PRIVACY NOTICE:
  • Authors blogging under pseudonyms will not have their real names divulged unless they have themselves disclosed it publicly.
  • Bloggers who forward their traffic stats to the compiler (editor at tumeke.org) will only have the relevant data (ie. average daily unique visitors) used on this site - other information that may be contained in the data will not be used and will be kept strictly confidential.
