Kiwipolitico readers and commenters will know that this blog has quickly established itself as a platform for considered debate about issues of concern to informed kiwis. This is what itâ€™s all about, and it has been very gratifying for those of us posting to see the generally very positive response and constructive tone of discussion.
For a more precise picture, we have some stats. The wordpress blog stats tell us that we had 23,502 views in January. It took jafapeteâ€™s weblog months to reach that level of traffic, when it got into the Tumeke top 20.
We didnâ€™t have a proper stat counter operating until 16 January, and can report that over the period 16â€”31 January unique visits averaged 293. According to the wordpress stat counter, the number of views in the second half of January was about the same as the second half, so the figure is close to what we would have seen for the month as a whole.
Calculating Tumekeâ€™s score most probably places us in the top 20 for January!
290 + 19 + 14.5 + 80 = 403.5
Average daily unique visits = 290
Technorati “Authority” = 19
Average posts per week: 58 Ã· 4 = 14.5
Average comments of top 4 commented posts (96 + 84 + 75 + 66) = 80
