A few months ago, I installed Google Analytics on my official Web site. Combined with Google’s tools for webmasters, it has been a real learning experience, as I’ve discovered all the things I have been doing wrong all these years.
But some of what I’ve learned has been really fun. For starters, since November 1, 2008, there have been 1,134 unique visits to my site; even more interesting, those visitors hail from 547 cities in 45 different countries.
As one might imagine, the majority of my site’s traffic (809 visits) came from the United States. But it’s cool to see where the rest of it came from:
United Kingdom (81)
The Netherlands (8)
The Phillipines (5)
Sweden and an unidentified territory (4 from both)
3 Visits Each
2 Visits Each
Trinidad and Tobago
1 Visit Each
Saint Kitts and Nevis
I know it shouldn’t surprise me, but it just feels kind of cool to know that there are people all over the world who, through whatever combination of choice or error, have visited my web site and learned perhaps a little bit about li’l ol’ me.
