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
- United States
- United Kingdom (very close to tying India, BTW)
- New Zealand
- Hong Kong
- United Arab Emirates
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.

Top 25 Languages
Although I don’t publish my website in any language other than English (it has recently been recommended to me though, and I’m considering it), my blog has been viewed in 90 languages.
Here are the top 25. Once again, a very interesting story!
Thank you for reading my blog! I would also like to extend special thanks to those of you who have recommended my site to others. I write to share ideas, so I appreciate you “paying it forward” and sharing with others.
I must admit I’m hooked on being able to share my thoughts and opinions with recruiters, sourcers and HR professionals all over world, and I sincerely appreciate my international readership! I had no idea how strong it was!
As a last note – don’t hesitate to let me know if there is anything specific you’d like me to write about, or if you’d be interested in guest posting on this site.
