Google Analytics - Thank You Argentina

2011 marked the first year people from Argentina visited my site.

How do I know this? Thanks to Google Analytics I can know how many visits I received at www.westonochse.com and from what continent, country and city. So to those two people in Buenos Aries-- THANKS!

Thanks also goes out to folks in:

Kuala Lampur
New Delhi
Hong Kong

and a hundred others, including cities across the U.S., Canada, and the U.K.

The most interesting-named city was Sugar Land, Texas.

The one I absolutely had to look up was Szeged, which as it turns out is the third largest city in Hungary.

On an interesting note, more people visited me using the Firefox browser than Internet Explorer. Sorry Bill and Melinda.

How did people get to this site? As it turns out, typing it in directly was the number one method, which means it was either from my business card or from the back of a book (I wish there was a way to track which one). Number two was through google searches and number three was through Facebook.

Not that I know what to do with any of this information, I just find it immensely interesting. I mean, as a kid laying bed at night, I knew of these far-flung places. And now to have someone socializing with me from those same places can't help but make me smile.

So to all of you who have stopped by my website in the last year, thank you, well met, and I hope to see you again.

  1. People from Argentina is really cybernetic. They usually are eager to visit blogs talking about their country or about anything else that is interesting. I met many Argentineans during the rental I had there when I travelled with 4rent Argentina and they were all crazy about Americans.. They are friendly because they want to practise English so they will continue visiting your blog!
