It was this time last year that I started to use Clustr Maps to display where the visitors to Thomo’s Hole were coming from. Every year the map is archived and a fresh one starts. This is about to happen here now so I though I would take this opportunity to record and save the details at this time.
Firstly the map. If you click on the image to the left a larger size map will be seen which will allow you to see more clearly the location of the visitors. I note that I have had visitors from almost everywhere, including the far north of Alaska (Nuiqsut perhaps), the Pacific, Indian and Atlantic Ocean Islands as well as the usual places.
Even though I am Australian, most of the visitors to the Hole come from the US and the UK. In fact, I have had visitors from 161 countries around the world – I have not had visitors from some of the African and Caribbean countries as well as North Korea.
In the year from 1 March 2009 and 2 March 2010 there have been 36,402 visits to Thomo’s Hole. If I add in the three months from January 2009, the total is 41,248 visitors.
I have other statistics from Google Analytics amongst other places but these are the easiest to see and to share. I am quite pleased with the regular visitors that arrive here, read, comment and enjoy the Hole.
You’ll see a new map in the sidebar in a day or so with the map reset to empty so we can see where folks visit from in the coming year.
