Top Countries

The latest bandwagon to arrive in Memeland is posting a list of the top countries where visitors come from – Dave started it and Kazza continued the trend, so here’s mine.

Top 25 Countries

I removed the US because this includes .com, .org and.net which are not necessarily US users (my hostname is a .com, for example), along with .eu hostnames (since they’re not one specific country) and those with no hostname. Countries in bold are ones I’ve visited; I’ve also visited Switzerland, Romania, Greece and Barbados but none of those were in the top 25. Paraguay was bottom with 1 hit and 0 page views. The statistics start at midnight GMT on June 1st and go up to around midday today.
With this being an English-language blog, there’s an obvious skew towards English-speaking nations, but I was surprised at the number of Indian visitors here. The Slovak Republic has also done well.
It would also appear that I’m not yet blocked by the Great Firewall of China. I’m sure it’s only a matter of time before I am though.

  2. heh yours make a little more sense than mine, but then most hits to my blog are simply for the images, which are less language specific πŸ™‚

  3. United States – 49.24%
    United Kingdom – 18.98%
    Canada – 7.09%
    Australia – 3.68%

    They’re my top 5 for my main site.

  4. Oh the humanity… the good old US of A has been relegated to non-country status by Neil now!! Will the United Nations be next??
    Wait a second… are we even in the UN anymore? πŸ™‚

  5. Neil, English is the National Language of India along with Hindi. We speak english too, albeit with an Indian accent:)

  6. I suppose the next trend will be “how many countries have you visited”. πŸ™‚
