TOTAL BLOGS n=191 (-1)

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

    Alexa is a very important benchmark to determine the rankings and traffic of sites. Google is placed at the 2nd position as per Alexa rankings and traffic rankings and is facing tough competition from Live.com and of course Yahoo.
