One of my favorite little tools in WordPress is the Map feature.
It tells you where your traffic is coming from. I expected hits in the USA and Canada, but beyond that was a little bit of a surprise. There are a few of you out there that I “talk” to all the time, and I never thought about asking where you are.
Here is my hit map for a random day. Pretty neat, huh? Not world-wide dominance by far, but really interesting. I mean, Saudi Arabia? What’s that all about?
Actually, hoping around blogs I did start chatting with someone in Saudi Arabia, so I at least know where some of those hits are coming from. Everyone give Anastasia a big hug. She’s over there in Saudi and misses the simple comforts of home… like basic things we take for granted every day. (Like driving, or riding a bike)
If you want even more detailed standings, and you have a self-posted web-site, you can use tools like ClusterMaps for an even more detailed map. (This will not work on WordPress)
So, what about all those other countries? I know you follow, because the hits in places Like Saudi-Arabia, Pakistan, Australia, and New Zealand come up every day.
Who are you? Where are you? I’d love to meet you!
