    City of Visitors – Dunedin 2.0%. Dunedin has about 3% of the population so looks to be under-represented on KB – I expect an apology from all those who’ve grizzled about how much I’ve commented here.

    But – thanks to DPF for his tolerance and many excellent posts. When’s your next holiday?

    Interesting statistics; very surprised to learn Kiwiblog has few readers in the provinces (1.6% Palmy, 2% Dunedin) as I would have thought the number would have been considerably greater in the provinces and quite low in Auckland.

    [DPF: The city stats should be read with caution. They are often based on where the ISP is located]

    Good to see Farrar’s open attitude towards the Kblog viewer stats. Be interested to see a similar breakdown of Whaleoil viewers….

    Doubt we’ll see them though.

    Very healthy stats with a 19% increase!
    Keep up the good work, DPF. This blog (and WO) are my two must-reads.
    Thank goodness there are blogs like this to counter the awful leftist nonsense coming from places like Red Alert and The Standard.

    Thing is, I’d only have half the number if I wasn’t responding to silly sniping from the likes of you or that silly misanthropic bint elaycee.

    Scott, not sure why the unnecessary swipe at Whale Oil. Why would it be interesting to see his breakdown (as opposed to, say, the Standard’s breakdown, or Red Alert’s breakdown)? Why in particular are you making it a negative comment about Whale Oil for not releasing it when so few blogs release it. Perhaps he doesn’t post it because he can’t be bothered or thought nobody was interested?

    One question DPF:

    When I have been wading through one of your posts or the comments etc, and I click on “Home” to go back to the start, there is always a delay while all the info, ads etc reload – does this register as a new separate visit, or do I have to log off then log back on to be listed as a separate visit?

    But Scott, surely the mature response is to ignore what you perceive as sniping. But then …

    Soooo … confirming –

    PaulL says:- “why the unnecessary swipe at Whale Oil.”

    Because I find the ratio of comments to viewers suspicious. I’d have thought that there would be a fairly standard correlation between the two, and yet for the number of views Slater purportedly gets on his blogsite (substantially more than kblog) he gets far fewer comments.

    Easiest way for anyone to check this is to see what, if any, correlation exists between views and comments of all the blogs listed. But I couldn’t be bothered. The point is too obscure to prove anything to most people.

    just wondered if it was possible for Whale to fake his site stats ?

    and asked myself is he the type to do it ?

    Pollywog, I was just wondering if it was possible for you to beat your wife. And asked myself, is he the type to do it.

    I guess the question is for what reason you think Whale might be faking his stats, and why you even care. This seems an exercise in assuming that Whale is a bad person (I’ll give you crazy, but I’m not sure on bad), and then imagining some bad things he might be doing because he’s bad. Why don’t you just write a comment saying you don’t like him, stop visiting his site, and don’t worry about it?

    Yes I know. Question is, how could you manipulate those numbers? Like I said on your original post congratulating Slater. Smells like someones bot.

    I’ll take that on board Scott.

    Make sure you report back on the outcome of your expert research on point.

    The world is waiting.

    i don’t visit his site, i don’t care about him faking his site stats, i’m not worried about whether he’s a bad person or not, whether he beats his wife or anything about him.

    i was just wondering if it was possible to fake site stats and now know it is. As for why he might do it, well…

    crazy is as crazy does

    C’mon Dav, lets start again shall we?

    I like reading your posts when they’re not about me. I see ‘thedavincimode’ in the recent comments side bar and I think, “wonder what dav’s take on this subject is?”

    Just lately though, it’s been kinda negative and personal.
