Around the world with Enjoy Food & Travel - November 2008

By October 31st, 3209 of you had visited Enjoy Food & Travel. In addition to this, an average of 28 of you subscribed daily to feeds, bringing the total number to 4101. 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 six fold.

Asia and Australia

Even though most of the worlds population lives in Asia, there are relatively few visitors on Enjoy Food & Travel.
There are still white areas on the map in Asia, i.e. from countries where there have been no visitors to the site. First and foremost The People Republic of China and most of the Central Asian republics.
Still my first visitor from this region, visitor from Baku in Azerbadjan, visited Enjoy Food & Travel October 24th. The visits from India are also very few.

Most of the visitors are from locations in Australia, Israel, Malaysia, the Philippines and Japan, and the biggest concentrations are around Melbourne and Sydney. There are no locations in these continents with more than 20 visitors.

There are visitors from 15 locations around Johannesburg and neighbouring Pretoria, as well as 4 locations around Cape Town. One of the suburbs of Cape Town, Parow, is one out of ten locations with the most visitors here on Enjoy Food & Travel with 23 visitors.

Elsewhere there are one or two visitors scattered over these vast continents. I am happy that there are are visitors from several new countries in Africa.
