Around the world on Enjoy Food & Travel, July 2008

View Larger Map

By July 31st, 2088 of you had visited Enjoy Food & Travel. In addition to this, an average of 24 of you subscribed daily to feeds, bringing the total number to 2845 in July. I am still curious who you are, those of you that visit Enjoy Food & Travel.

Visitors on all continents

It is Feedburner that has made it possible for me to follow where my visitors come from, and it has been exciting to follow the increase in traffic.

From the humble start in September 2006 Enjoy Food & Travel has grown in size. In average I have published one story each day, and in a month or so the site will have more than 1000 stories on food and travel. As the site has grown, more and more of you visit. The first year I struggled to reach 400-500 visitors a month, now the number of visitors have increased five fold.

There are some hot spots. Most visitors come from the United States and Europe. In the US there are hot spots as the Boston, New York City-New Jersey, Los Angeles and San Francisco areas. In Europe I am pleased to say that many visitors are in my home town Oslo, from neighboring Denmark, England, The Netherlands, and Belgium.

More visitors in Africa and India, still no visits from PR China Caucasus and Central Asia

I have had visitors from more and more states in Africa. The latest visits are from Gabon, Swaziland, Togo, Zimbabwe, Benin, Uganda, and the small French island of Réunion, east of Madagascar. In Asia I have had my two first visitors from Pakistan, one from Karachi and one from Islamabad. There have been more visitors from India as well.

There are also an increasing number of visitors from South Africa, mostly in the Johannesburg- Pretoria area. I have visited South Africa once and I loved the sights, people and the restaurants, and the food was marvellous.

There are relatively few visitors from the Russian Federation, the Middle East and Asia, more in Australia and New Zealand.

I have in July had no visits from the PR of China, the Caucasus region and Central Asia, so we have to gain new ground there.
