I don’t check blog stats very often nowadays, as Kiwiblog is a hobby, not a job. But I saw another blog post on their monthly stats so I went to check out the stats at Open Parachute to see what the latest stats and rankings were.
Was pleased to see the monthly visits for Kiwiblog were around 416,000. This is 90,000 more than a year ago and 28% growth. I think the new design may be part of the reason for that so thanks to Rachel Cunliffe and her team.
What was interesting was also to note the changes to the two biggest left blogs.
The Standard has dropped 45,000 monthly visits compared to a year ago, which is a 21% drop.
The Daily Blog has dropped 68,000 monthly visits compared to a year ago, which is a 37% drop.
