There were months recently where I had zero Russian click thrus on the blog, and it showed with my monthly visitor numbers. The same for China… I had one day where I had 300 hits from China… and then… nothing. Was it something I said? Come one, China - let the people through. I like China… I eat Chinese food a couple of times a week… it’s my comfort food, seeing as how Japanese food is so damn expensive here in Canada.
Congratulations to Russia for hitting and wildly surpassing the 50,000 hit mark (in total) for visits to Japan—It’s A Wonderful Rife.
They were the ninth country to do so, and thanks to the massive influx of Russia hits this week, they even overtook the Australian contingent to move up into eighth place.
Blog hits by country:
- United States of America: 972,223
- Canada: 246,225
- Japan: 114793
- United Kingdom: 105,999
- Indonesia: 90,986
- Germany: 56,668
- France: 57,086
- Russia: 55,778
- Australia: 54,473
- Singapore: 20,367
I check for SPAM regularly, too. You have to if you run a blog. the SPAM I usually get involves those trying to advertise porn or escort sites, plus those who want to tell a story about how some fortune teller saved their marriage. No! You and your significant other save your marriage, if it’s in the cards.
I rarely get visitors from Africa, but it happens - usually from Egypt. Same for South America.
I know I once got a few hits from Antarctica, which is fascinating. Who knew penguins had wi-fi? Maybe they just have wi, because I know penguins can’t fi.
Okay, I’ll end this blog on that lame wordplay.
Thanks for your continued support.
