TOTAL BLOGS n=192

-----------------------------
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. 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.

    Workers Party alexa ranking should be

    NZ: 35,834
    World: 5,187,291

    See http://www.alexa.com/data/details/traffic_details/workersparty.org.nz

    Thanks, Tim. I had kept the link to the old Spark stats and not changed them for the new URL.
    That was my mistake and I apologise.
    The Alexa and Technorati links have been amended now and that will be used in the next survey.

    Idiot/Savant said...

    Hmm. My verified traffic improves significantly, but my Alexa ranking doesn't change. Something is screwy with their system.

    Tim Selwyn said...

    Alexa is still the best thing I have come across to measure traffic.

    There may be a time lag for the higher traffic to impact the Alexa rank we use - ? maybe.

    I'm the only one blogging at halfdone at present - ilovemrstiggywinkle retired for the third time a month or three back.

    Tumeke's latest survey includes an impressive 187 New Zealand-penned blogs. He points out that blogs are now becoming more widely accepted by the regular media, and some have even been mentioned by MPs in the Beehive.
