Blog Stats

These are the places from which this blog receives visitors/readers [11/26/15].

Why no visitors from Spain (where our colleague Jose Caravaca has a blog)?

Or Italy (where our friend ilfakara/Santo lives)?

Or Africa (where Mafus Huq lives)?

Odd.

  • Well the blog is in English. You should take that into account. On the flip side, much of the world seems to know at least a little English, and with google translate it's easier than ever to read foreign websites.

    Maybe you should ask Jose, Santo, and Huq what their thoughts are on this.

    Btw, Love the blog posts about Biocentrism/biocentric universe.

  • Thank you Daniel...

    I've sent a note to Jose. He uses Facebook mostly for his postings I think.

    I'm finding that many UFO people are connecting via Facebook.

    I have several Facebook accounts, and my MediaWatch page there gets more UFO comments than the blog, which is interesting.

  • Thank you ilfakiro.

    I know you check in regularly and wonder why Blogger's statistics don't show that.

    (Blogger isn't the best.)

  • There are a couple different ways that Blogger could be determining the user's country. More than likely it is a process that is reading the log files of their web server. A reverse DNS lookup is actually network intensive -- something that would be quite time-consuming for all of their logs. So more than likely, they don't do it that way. More than likely, Blogger has a database (which are commercially available) it looks up the numeric IP address in. And more than likely, that database is only a partial. Either that, or your visitors are coming through a US proxy corporation of some kind.

  • I usually put links to this blog ... I will try to climb the visits from Spain ... they have to learn more about your blog :)

  • Thank you Jose....

    I know you check in regularly too, and why Spain doesn't show up in the stat list baffles me.

  • RR,

    I find it a bit odd too, given that Blogger is rather large. However, I tend to suspect Spain's privacy laws. Blogger may not be permitted by law to actually record for public release personally identifying information on visitors from specific countries. And without that personally identifying information -- namely the IP address -- there's not much tracking that actually CAN be done. There is nothing a website can do to 'interrogate' the visitor's browser to check what the user wants to offer in terms of their country of origin. That would be a nice feature for future HTML implementations, perhaps. But until that happens, you might want to send a message to Blogger to see if they can answer it for you more specifically. But that's my best educated guess.

  • Interesting of course to see the global reader stats, and there may be many reasons why the US tops the hit list, but might this also convey that US citizens are in fact far more obsessed with UFO's than other nations? And if so, why?

  • What, no more after 'Ireland (31)', and none from Australia (i.e. me, an occasional reader)?

    By Blogger Holly Mackeral, at Sunday, November 29, 2015  

  • Yes, HM, it's odd...

    One would think that the statistics would show every reader or viewer (hit) that occurs.

    Google's Blogger remains primitive, unfortunately.
