May Blog Stats

Open Parachute has released the latest blog stats.


In the interests of transparency here are my Google stats as well, which show that over 100,000 unique people visited the blog last month for over 2.8 million pageviews.



Once again a big thank you to my readers, loyal and new. Without you it would be any fun, especially the commenters, but for those who lurk and don;t comment I enjoy your visits too.

Thank you also to the team, Pete and Travis for attempting to keep me sane.

Lastly, thanks to Aaron Gilmore for the massive spikes in traffics last month and for kicking off this month by leaking stuff to the media.


THANK YOU for being a subscriber. Because of you Whaleoil is going from strength to strength. It is a little known fact that Whaleoil subscribers are better in bed, good looking and highly intelligent. Sometimes all at once! Please Click Here Now to subscribe to an ad-free Whaleoil.

  • Mr_Blobby

    The only surprise there is the kiwiblog stats, given how lazy the site is I would expect them to be dropping.

    • Tony V

      I wonder if his stats get held up by Cam’s reference to one of his blogs, then the subsequent visits to his site by us?

  • DreaF

    Well done Cam. I love this blog

  • GazzW

    Next months stats should be spectacular given David Fisher’s brilliant publicity effort this morning.

    • Travis Poulson

      He’s a well trained little monkey. He often tweets and links back to the site. We are extremely grateful for his effort.

      • Dave

        Im sure his employer is grateful for that.

  • Bunswalla

    You’re still welcome

  • caleb

    More than all the rest combined, shortly..

    Whaleoil TV on the cards?

  • fecnde

    Obviously an irrelevant blog

  • Agent BallSack

    It’s like a nail gun between the eyes for the left. Well done Cam and Pete and Travis and SpanishBride. Love your work.

  • Lofty

    These figures will only improve despite the left and their MSM running dogs loading, cocking , taking aim, firing…….miss.

    • Bunswalla

      Lofty I think their M.O. is more Ready, Fire, Aim!

  • Lloyd

    Oh, dear… poor old Boomer Bradbury gets one visitor for every five of yours. I guess leftist bullshit really is not all that alluring after all…

    • Travis Poulson

      And leftist bullshit needs funding and union $. Whale Oil Beef Hooked runs on the smell of an oily rag.

  • Michael

    Whaleoil readership = The Standard + The Daily Blog + all the other Left Wing blogs combined?

    • Travis Poulson

      And 50% on top of that. Or as Helen Kelly puts it, “irrelevant”. It is no great surprise, Cam is the biggest thorn in the side of the unions.

      • Dave

        Or, in the quote I repeated the other day from Muldoon, Will you be a thorn in their side Mr Muldoon? no, just a little prick!

  • kehua

    Probably the Countries most read Author, Congratulations Cam.

    • Dave

      I agree with you there Kehua, but lets add, Editor, Journo, Author, Hunter, Dad, Leader, and the leading blogger in NZ, no wonder David Fisherwoman is not happy.

  • GregM

    Good shit team, and thank you.

  • Col

    Someone is watching you.
    Well done Cam and team, I enjoy the fun and humour we have thanks.

  • IWantToBeLikeMallardOneDay

    You thank us, but really, we must thank you. Your work is awesome and it keeps many of us sane.

    MSM and the left will continue to attack Whale as MSM are fighting to retain relevance as they cut costs and employ very poor journalists. They are now in the same realm as womens weekly. The left will fight because they have nothing else to do as they continually try to turn the clock back a century at a time
