For Fun — Year End Geographical Report

WordPress sent me a year-end report on this blog.  One aspect was kind of fun — they showed visitors by continent, with a breakdown of the top five nations (by visits to the blog) within each continent.  The report doesn’t include about half of December, which brought a lot of UK traffic due to the Tesco controversy.  So the percentages understate UK visits (and are probably flawed in other ways as well), but I found it interesting and thought my readers might as well.

The two continents which brought the most visitors to the blog were Europe and North America.

Europe (percentages are percentage of European visits):

  1. United Kingdom — 89,5%
  2. France — 2.6%
  3. Germany — 1.4%
  4. Iceland — 1.0%
  5. Netherlands — 0.8%

Others 4.7%

North America:

  1. United States — 91.9%
  2. Canada — 7.5%
  3. Jamaica — 0.4%
  4. Mexico — 0.1%
  5. Costa Rica — 0.0%

Oceania:

  1. Australia — 96.2%
  2. New Zealand — 3.8%

Asia:

  1. India — 23.9%
  2. Philippines — 21.1%
  3. Singapore — 16.9%
  4. Indonesia — 9.4%
  5. Malaysia — 7.5%

Others — 21.2%

Africa:

  1. South Africa — 31.4%
  2. Tanzania — 14.3%
  3. Nigeria — 14.3%
  4. Kenya — 14.3%
  5. Ghana — 8.6%

Others — 17.1%

Finally, South America:

  1. Brazil — 71.4%
  2. Peru — 14.3%
  3. Uruguay — 14.3%

I’m not sure any of this says anything about how profitable the blog is to readers, of course.  It does include some surprises — I never would have guessed I’d had visitors to the blog from some of those countries.

If your country didn’t make the top five in traffic for your continent, WordPress isn’t telling us you exist, so you’ll need to speak up!  Feel free to add a comment and let us know! 🙂
