International Cat Speculators Since 2006


Late this month, I know. After the boycott was launched I was accused of participating to forward my own stats.

This is, of course absolute crap. I have always done this for my own entertainment, and defer to the Tumeke! stats as a more considered view of the New Zealand blogosphere. So I shall continue.

If that annoys certain others, tough. This is a right wing blog, and annoying the left is what we do.

Oh, and the fact that the boycott is being ignored helps considerably. If others are going to continue as normal, so shall I.

Rankings are over the fold, due to issues with RSS not picking up these posts.

Alexa = Alexa ranking

NZ ranking = Alexa NZ ranking

Technorati.com authority score (1 if none)

HD Score calculated Alexa*AlexaNZ/Authority/10000. Greens blog multiplied by 80.

All data was downloaded this evening.

Notes:

1. The criteria here are looser than Tumeke! Generally we are more relaxed, and include all blogs that post items interesting to the general public. This is pretty much most things outside of strictly “this is what I did today” style blogs. We also include blogs that are defunct, as many still are read for months after closing.

2. If you have asked and have not been included, or know of a blog that’s not here please feel free to let me know – politely! I keep thinking I have lost things but not finding them… so if I’ve missed you let me know. Ditto for classifications.

3. There are no prizes for asking why frog blog is “out of place”. Because the blog is only part of that site, I cannot justify calculation on the same basis as blogs that are the sole feature of their site. Strictly speaking, it should be on the “cannot calculate” list.

Note: Original Blog list, and original concept from Tumeke, who have a more considered ranking of the NZ blogosphere here. No Hamsters were harmed in the compiling of these statistics, just egos!

Comments on: "Halfdone Blog Stats April" (11)

  1. Yay they are out!

    Not that it changes our position but our Technorati score was 62 at the close of April.

  2. 164 #34 Capitalism Bad; Tree Pretty

    now THATS a big gap between the two stats.

  3. […] to Halfdone’s Blog Stats for April, EM is at number 27 overall. Not quite in the top […]

  4. Hm, just noticed Whaleoil’s authority looks really wrong.

    I did have some problems with those, but thought it was all sorted. Apparently not.

  5. […] has the longest running ranking. Halfdone  joined in a few months ago and more recent is Open Parachute who posted today about ranking with […]

  6. Very enjoyable. In my opinion, you should do what you wish in terms of methodology—as you say, you are doing it for your enjoyment, the method is easy to understand, and those who don’t like it can, well, do their own index with their own method! (I am pretty stoked to have gone up a few spots, too!)

  7. Hi, wondering is it possible to indicate how blogs have faired since you last rated them? i.e. -5 or +10 etc?

  8. I’m amazed that my long-winded rambling beats some MP’s long winded rambling. Maybe I should run for Parliament 😛

    Seriously though, thanks for the compilation.

  9. You should read this months – but thanks!

  10. Have you seen these Christian blogs? They’ve been around for quite a while.
