Boolean Black Belt Website Visitor Analytics

I’ve been blogging since 10/2/2008.

Since then, my blog has had visitors from 9,704 cities in 171 countries around the world, and has been read in 90 languages.

I don’t blog to monetize my website – I write because I’m passionate about recruiting and technology. Okay, I may be a little obsessed too. Maybe more than a little. :-)

Because I am not a professional blogger, I’ve never really drilled into my website analytics beyond the basics. I recently had a friend ask me about the visitors to my blog, and I really couldn’t tell him much other than the obvious, which made me feel a little stupid. Okay, maybe more than a little.

So, I decided to dig into my website analytics and share with you what I found. I hope you find it as interesting as I do!

Top 25 Countries


  1. United States
  2. India
  3. United Kingdom (very close to tying India, BTW)
  4. Canada
  5. Australia
  6. Netherlands
  7. Germany
  8. Singapore
  9. Philippines
  10. Ireland
  11. France
  12. Lebanon
  13. Russia
  14. Switzerland
  15. New Zealand
  16. China
  17. Malaysia
  18. Italy
  19. Japan
  20. Hong Kong
  21. Thailand
  22. United Arab Emirates
  23. Belgium
  24. Pakistan
  25. Spain

Yes, I know Hong Kong (#20) isn’t a country – I am not sure why Google Analytics listed it as such. Perhaps because Hong Kong is a Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China?

If you add the numbers from Hong Kong into China, China would jump all the way to #8, and the #25 country would be South Africa.
