Where Vinography Gets Read Around the World

I don't get a lot of reader requests for me to write specific articles here on Vinography, but a series of e-mail conversations with a reader today led to a request that I publish some information about where my other readers come from.

This particular reader was in Hong Kong and was proud of being part of my international contingent of readers, but wondered where else around the world I get traffic from.

Well, since you asked, I include below the list of the places that readers have come from in the last month, in order of descending traffic.

For those who care about (or who are geeky enough to wonder about such things) these statistics are filtered by Google Analytics for bots and crawlers of all kinds, though they can't completely be be scrubbed clean if the bots are spoofing a specific web browser in their HTTP request header. Translation: this is the best I got, and you're free to doubt or discount this data to whatever degree you feel appropriate.

So without further ado, here's who was visiting in the last 30 days in descending order of number of visits:

United States
Canada
United Kingdom
Australia
France
Italy
Germany
Brazil
Japan
Spain
Netherlands
Hungary

French Polynesia

Maldives

Seychelles
Paraguay

In case you didn't bother to count, that's 135 countries. The last 20 or so in the list only had a couple of visits in the last 30 days, and the top few had several tens of thousands of visits in the same time period.

Anyone know any wine lovers in the Congo or Sudan? Those sort of floor me a little. It's also interesting to see such a separation between Hong Kong and mainland China in terms of the number of visitors.

If you're yawning, well, we now return you to your normal programming.
