Recently I found a counter in somebody's blog that read Sitemeter. So I clicked on the counter and read about it. It sounded interesting, so I put the Sitemeter counter in my sidebar also.
The neat thing about Sitemeter is that it's not just a counter. It does more than show you how many visitors have come to your blog. It shows you all kinds of things about what is going on at your blog. All you need to do is press on your Sitemeter counter, and enter your password, and Sitemeter will take you to a site that tells you a lot about your own blog.
So on Tuesday night I began to play around with the site, just familiarizing myself with it.
I clicked on the link "Location". There listed were the last 100 people who had visited my blog. Not the names of the people of course. Of course it wouldn't give out such information. But the countries the readers were in. There was also a pie map detailing my readership by percentages.
Suddenly I was stunned at what I saw!
My readership was 85% in America and 15% out of the country!
The largest out of the country traffic comes from Vienna, Austria! That's 5%. I have a very faithful reader in Vienna, Wien, Austria. To you I want to say a big hello! :) I hope you will be able to comment some day, and we can all get to know you better!
My next largest out of the country readership of course comes from the UK.
So I thought I would list where the out of the country readership was from on Tuesday's report:
Austria, Australia, Spain, Switzerland, Russian Federation (Moscow City, Moscow), and Singapore
Today I got back on and checked again, because there was an update in my emailbox. Add to that list Bombay, India.
Pretty cool, huh?
Oh, you can check out Sitemeter for yourself. But don't forget to leave me a comment first, LOL.
