Any blogs that activate all 3 “if none” criteria are placed in the “can’t calculate” list, as well as most blogs that resolve to a larger website in Alexa.

Notes:

1. 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!

2. Some icons may be incorrect – e.g. Atheist may be marked Art (guess why…) let me know if you spot any mistakes or omissions. Feel free to suggest a new category by sending us a list of blogs that you think qualify and suggestions for icons.

3. Technorati have changed their scoring system. Instead of authorities ranging from 1 to 120, they now start at 91 (??!). Because of this, I have moved the default up to 40. That’s not generous I know, so be sure your blog is registered!

4. Because of the situation with Technorati, Labour’s blog has fallen out of the top 20 and does not attract an extra multiplier.

5. In light of recent events, I request all comments in this thread address ScrubOne as “Lord High Blog Stats Guy” and be accompanied by a cheque totaling one tenth of your earnings for the last month. Like anyone ever reads these points…

Note: Original Blog list, and original concept from Tumeke, who have a more considered ranking of the NZ blogosphere here. Some blogs also discovered via Open Parachute’s blog rankings. No Hamsters were harmed in the compiling of these statistics, just egos!

  2. Hi, guys:
    I’d appreciate you considering my blog for inclusion on your list:
    yardyyardyyardy.blogspot.com
    It’s “…muse, news and views of a Baby Boomer who’s trying to avoid middle age…”.
    Hopefully it’ll be of enough interest for the list!

    Cheers,

    Technorati is a real pain in the backside or am I doing something wrong.

    I now have an authority rating of 1 – according to my site. How do you start with ratuing of 90??? I ahve been with them for about a year, although I did change to a .com site about 4 months ago. Even so I should have a rating higher than 1

    Can someone help
