The beauty of Google Analytics

Posted by Craig Kanalley on 10/19/2008
I can track who's visiting my Web site - when they visited, how they got to the site, and my personal favorite: where they're located in the world.

Funny thing is, a lot of times you have no idea who these people are. I don't recall knowing anyone in Beaverton, Oregon; Southport, North Carolina; Lexington, Kentucky; or Hennepin Co., Minnesota...yet I've had visits from those places. And I'm really curious who visited my site from Seoul, South Korea - could it be my long-lost friend Kyung-Hoon You, who I lost touch with when he went back to Seoul?

So when you visit, anyone, I'd love to hear from you - a comment on my blog, an e-mail message, or a guestbook message - so I know who's visiting and how you found my site!

Anyway, I've had visits from 31 of these United States (click the map to enlarge it):



Here's the states that haven't visited my site yet:
Alabama
Alaska
Arkansas
Delaware
Idaho
Iowa
Kansas
Mississippi
Montana
New Hampshire
New Mexico
North Dakota
Ohio
Oklahoma
Rhode Island
South Dakota
Tennessee
Vermont
Wyoming

I've also had visits from 10 countries in all: Australia, Canada, Croatia, France, Germany, Israel, South Korea, Syria, UK, and USA.

Of the countries, USA is obviously number one in my traffic. Canada is number two, with most results from Ontario, and some others from Alberta and British Columbia.

To those 19 states above, I hope to see you on my site soon! That includes YOUR state Gov. Palin, and YOUR state Sen. Biden.

Thanks to everyone who's been visiting!
