Kiwiblog’s 2009 Stats

January 26th, 2010 at 11:00 am by David Farrar

The top UK blog Guido Fawkes just mentioned his stats for the last week, being 340,000 page views. That got me to do a quick compare, and KB had 121,000 page views.  As the UK has 15 times the population, I’m pretty chuffed to be at slightly more than one third the level of a (or the) top UK blog.

That then reminded me that I should check out and publish what the annual stats were so I just ran Google Analytics for the 2009 calendar year. Some stats:

  • 2.68 million visits
  • 6.00 million page views
  • 680,000 visitors
  • Average Time on Site 4:22
  • Traffic Source is 35% direct URL, 24% links and 41% search engines

Kiwiblog Stats

September 30th, 2008 at 6:54 pm by David Farrar

As it is end of the month, have taken a look at the various stat packages. First we have Alexa. This only measures traffic and ranks amongst those who have downloaded the toolbar. However in terms of trend, it gives some useful perspective:

I am unsure that it is a good thing the blog is in the top ten hits in Google for animal sex! Especially that all the other sites seem to umm specialise in it. I blame the West Coast wombat plus the Netherlands (I blogged about their vote to make sex with animals illegal).
