nz blogosphere rankings: January 2009 summary

The January 2009 nz blogosphere rankings list is completed now, slightly later than usual. Many blogs have rebounded in traffic since the lull of the holidays. Being a quiet time posts have been level since December - but comments have been up. There was a lot of heat over Gaza in this period within the blogosphere in an otherwise placid summer break. Things are getting competitive in the top thirty or so now.

There are a total of 212 blogs on the list (up 3). Changes from last month (December) in brackets.

Thanks again Tim, I am a bit surprised at our small leap!

Yes cheers. Knew I'd plummet, that's what holiday in NZ does then the post New Year bleh. Got to work hard to get back in the top 20 :)

Thanks Julie, yes there was a bit of a shake up this month.

Thanks libertyscott: A publicly viewable traffic meter would be helpful, or you can email a screenshot of your unique visitor total for the month to editor@tumeke.org - those Alexa estimates are only going to sink!
