June Stats

Once again this blog is number one…but it can’t be there without the readers and commenters….even though some on the left and in the media think we are irrelevant…that is a whole lot of irrelevant right there. The team thanks you for reading and returning.

In the interests of transparency here is a snap shot of our Google Analytics data as well.

    staggering. not bad for an irrelevant blog.

  • Elitist Tory

    You are only considered irrelevant by the media for one reason – you ARE relevant.
    Media people want their editors (and Boards of Directors) to think blogs don’t matter because otherwise it begs the question as to why those editors and Boards pay those media people six figure salaries.

  • IWantToBeLikeMallardOneDay

    It is nice to know that there are some people in NZ who can think for themselves. The media there will have you think there are 28 million sheep in the place, four million of whom think they’re human beings. Not so. Thank god for the net. Break the lefty hegemony!

  • CheesyEarWax

    Where is the Utu Gilmore blog featured on the list?

    • Who?

    • Travis Poulson

      Never heard of him.

  • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

    He he he – Whale Oil by now you should know if the media terms you irrelevant, you are the most relevant!! Keep up the good work and all of you please vote Sheep.

  • Whafe

    Agree, it shows how piss poor the Media are, to make a comment that Whaleoil is irrelevant…… Doh, in actual fact, the relevance of Whaleoil scares the bejesus out of them….
    Congrats Cam & Team, keep up the fantastic work…

    Poor lefties. Their blog is only number three. While the right has the top two spots. (Quite right two).

    Still very good going for the we like trains blog. (at number 4)

    • pukakidon

      They are only just better than the Auckland Transport Blog. What we need to do is support the transport blog to push the Strandard even lower.

      “Poor lefties. Their blog is only number three. While the right has the top two spots”
      Typical of the Right…just because the Right educate themselves and their children to read, write and have a brain to think for themselves along with the fact that the mendacious Right have all the money as a result of this to be able to afford computers and the inter…..oh…bugger…wait……………NOPE…got nuffin…as you where! :)

      Edit: edited text to cap Right..better effect lol

  • Agent BallSack

    Well done team…grats to all those with their name in lights and those behind the scenes. It amazes me crapping over at the daily bog is so popular though. Although I guess half of the visits are people sniggering at Aucklands newest real estate agent.

  • cows4me

    What are unique visitors, have they only visited once? 111,000 is a large number if people are only visiting once.

    • Unique visitors is the number of individuals who visit the blog, they then produce multiple visits and multiple page views

  • Yvette

    I am so sick of being spoon fed left leaning bullsh*t news. When I watch the news on tv, or read an article in a newspaper I get really frustrated at the leftie slant. “the government has to help everyone” “nothing is anyones fault” “throw some more taxpayers money at it”

    I find some articles infuriating, and I think to myself “these guys must think I’m an idiot”

  • Bunswalla

    You’re most welcome, again.

    I note almost all the other “leading lights” have had small losses in both visits and pageviews, while WOBH has increased both.

  • kehua

    A force to be reckoned with , I love it.
