The combined total of the top left-wing blogs, which are at third and fourth, is still less than Kiwiblog which is second and miles from Whale Oil in first place.

Dim Post from the left is seventh and Keeping Stock from the right is 10th. I’m at 12, No Minister, which is more right than not is at 14th and Imperator Fish which is left is 16th.

I ditched Sitemeter because I kept getting a window asking me to sign in to it and now rely on StatCounter to record visits:

    Just goes to show what the polls have been saying since 2008 – John Key is the prettier face on Helen Clark’s policies that all Kiwis love.

    After all: even ACT is now supporting Welfare For Families, Parental Leave, with all the trimmings…

    But I still think Cam is wasted as a blogger: he should be NZ’s Beppe Grillo, making and breaking governments.

    not very into tech stuff but so glad sitemeter has gone.
    I tried every manouver to get that bloody box to do the decent thing.

    your great work is rated Ele and along with Iv2 terrific recognition of the selfless efforts as sole blogger as you are and the sole blogger you have when you dont have one at KS.


  3. Well done Ele; it’s great to see you edging towards the Open Parachute Top 10.

    With regard to Sitemeter vs Statcounter, I still run the former, but after it lost about two weeks of traffic either side of the beginning of June I asked Ken to rely on my Statcounter numbers. There’s only minimal variance between the two, but Statcounter seems to be more robust.
