Where Do You Readers Come From?

Posted on 30th May, 2007

I got the idea to write about this post after reading Darren Rowse post at his blog in which he looked at where readers of his blogs come from geographically using Google Analytics.

You may have noticed that Google Analytics has rolled out the new features introduced recently for the rest of its users.

One interesting feature is the Geo overlay which allows you to see where your traffic is coming from by glancing at a Global map. You can set it to show data by Continent, country or City.

This is particularly useful if used together with the geo targeting feature in AdWords.
As you can see below, the majority of my readers come from Asia, the Americas, Europe and the Oceania.


Zooming in on the US map, I find that most of my visitors come from the five most populous states namely California, Texas, New York, Florida and Illinois. I suspect you’ll see the same trend if you check your own data.


The city view shows that Kuala Lumpur tops the list which is not surprising. This is followed by Kuantan, Singapore, Petaling Jaya, Kelang, London, New York and Los Angeles.


How about you – where do you readers come from?

    I see there’s a lot users from my country (Croatia) and the rest of the visitors come mostly from US and Asia.

    Mine’s mostly from California, USA. Just found out this new feature after reading this post. Analytics look much better than the old version. Still because of its lack of real time statistics Statcounter is still my preferred choice.
