Tumeke! rankings: homepaddock 21

The Tumeke! blogosphere rankings of New Zealand political and news blogs for June are on-line.

Homepaddock is at number 21 which is nearly 100 places better than May, the first month it registered.

The rankings are based on a formula which takes into account unique visits, incoming links, number of posts and comments.

In light of that I offer my thanks to Tim Selwyn who does the comprehensive ranking, the other blogers who link to Homepaddock, the people who visit and those who comment – even when you don’t agree with me I enjoy your contribution to the discussion.

Homepaddock was launched very quietly at the end of April, the first link to a post came from  The Hive three weeks later which took the number of daily visitors from around 40 to nearly 300. Readership dropped back a little, with peaks when others linked to posts and the highest number of daily visitors came early last month in the wake of a link from Kiwiblog. (which is number 1 in the rankings).

The blogs from which most traffic comes are Keeping Stock  and No Minister; and visitors often call after they’ve been at Inquiring Mind or Poneke.

The stats counter always registers overnight visitors, presumably either insomniacs in New Zealand or people who live in different time zones.

Whoever and wherever you are, thanks for popping in.

  1. Congratulations! Your blog is a fine newcomer, with a unique appeal.
    Your country / farming focus sets you apart from others and your posts are great.
    Indeed, they are getting quite stealable, as you will discover shortly after midnight.
    Keep up the good work.
    You will soon be in the top ten.
    Certainly, your latest weekly Alexa ranking probably has you there already on the most recent viewing figures.

    Congrats! Your posts are interesting and it’s great to have the rural/provincial perspective given on national issues. I’m pleased that an “addiction” can have such positive results!
