Thanet Blog Chart

Once again I am publishing the number of people who have come to this blog during the last month by clicking on a link on another blog, it’s the closest I can get to an indicator of the relative popularity of the Thanet blogs. I have only included those that have feeds on their sidebar.

I was surprised that http://www.thanetblogs.blogspot.com/ came anywhere as I only published it for my own convenience and I didn’t think there were links to it anywhere.


  1. Strange that my own blog didn't send a few people your way (I seem to recall that it was featured quite high on the list last time you did this!). Maybe it's due to the fact that I haven't posted on there quite so frequently lately?

  2. sorry Peter I have put you in now

  3. I do my best I hope I haven’t missed anyone else.

  4. Confirmation there of what we all suspected - I am the island's premier blog! And so modest with it, too!

  5. It might be interesting to divide the number of referrals by the number of posts.

    In which case young Mr Checksfield is Thanet's number one

    ECR at no.2
    Eastcliff Matters no.3

    with bignews tony in its current suspended status down the blimmin pan as it were

    So the island's premier blog might just be there because he piles them high and sells em cheap!

    sorry Eastcliff, just sharpening the old claws!

  6. I'm actually old enough to be ECR's dad, but thanks for this! : )

  7. It might be interesting to divide the number of referrals by the number of posts.

    What kind of spurious, nonsensical calculation is that, OEB?

    Remind me not to hire you to do my overnights!

  8. I suspect that as I come across frequently from 'Strife' , Michael, the numbers from there might be mis-leading. Haven't managed to fix a counter thingee on Strife yet!

    A thought. I wonder if I could topple Premier man from his perch if I sat for a few hours 'popping across' to you? Sad, Bertie!

    Must go and remove my link to Village Voice as 'Our Ken' seems to have sent me into the wilderness. Sadder stil, perhaps?

  9. Eastcliffe my calculation might be more indicative of quality.

    But I have to admit on my own fledgling site yours is referring the most traffic.

    Of course ECR is in the premier division of blogs and likly to remain so.


Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
