Alexa = Alexa ranking (30000000 if none)
NZ ranking = Alexa NZ ranking (45000 if none)
Technorati.com authority score (40 if none – See note)

HD Score calculated Alexa*AlexaNZ/Authority/10000. Greens blog multiplied by 7 as their blogs are only part of the site traffic.

All data was downloaded after 1pm today.

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. Alexa seem to have changed their operating procedures, and the data I downloaded this afternoon is now different on their site. The ones I have checked seem to have only changed slightly, so I’m guessing that this is simply a change of the time that Alexa update their numbers (they do this daily – previously at midday) rather than some error by the hamsters. I’d rerun the hamsters but they had a good run and nether they nor I am motivated enough to do the exercise again and risk other problems.

2. If you have asked and have not been included, or know of a blog that’s not here, or feel colours or icons are incorrect, please feel free to let me know – politely! (“Hey fartface” is considered impolite BTW)

3. Feel free to suggest a new category by sending us a list of blogs that you think qualify and suggestions for icons.

4. (From last month) 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!

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

Note: Original Blog list, and original concept from Tumeke, who have a more considered ranking of the NZ blogosphere here though I’m not really a fan of the colour scheme. Some blogs also discovered via Open Parachute’s old blog rankings. No Hamsters were harmed in the compiling of these statistics, though they’re starting to complain as the list gets longer.

Comments on: "November Halfdone NZ Blog Stats – now with sports!" (6)

  1. I’m number five. The world has gone insane.

  2. […] world has gone insane. This is now the fifth ranking blog in the country. As the end of the world is obviously upon us, let us pray. 0 people like this post. […]

  3. You mean you only just noticed?

  4. Ozy Mandias said:

    Well done. Any possibility of having the sport icon added to my blog.

    Also having problems with technorati. What am I doing wrong???

    Cheers

    Ozy

  5. Mind throwing ben.geek.nz in the mix so I can see where it fits?
    Many thanks!
