Google Analytics



It's been awhile since I've had an entry with viewer statistics. So...

- Ahoy Hanoi has had 93,586 page views.
- Nearly 14,000 different people have spent time on Ahoy Hanoi.
- My blog has been read in 122 different countries.
- Every nation in Asia has read Ahoy Hanoi except North Korea (Do they have the internet there?), Kyrgzystan (apparently they've got more important things to do recently), Turkmenistan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and Georgia. I know what you're thinking and no, I have no idea why the Stan-nations hate Vietnam so much. And as far as Georgia goes, next time they battle with Russia lets just say I might not pull for the underdog.
- Every nation in Europe has read Ahoy Hanoi except Belarus, Iceland and Svalbard and Jan Mayen (I believe these last two are territories and not countries but they're still showing up as no shows on my google analytics world map). I'm personally offended by Belarus because for some unknown reason Belarus was my #2 nation that I rooted for during the Winter Olympics. Unless someone there starts logging in pronto they're gonna lose my support in 2014.
- After being the last state to read Ahoy Hanoi, South Dakota has now sky-rocketed in its readership. A whopping TWO people have now been to my blog from South Dakota. This ties them with one other state. Can you guess which one?.....

The answer is North Dakota.
- New York is still Ahoy Hanoi's greatest fan. However, California is just 550 visits behind.
- Shockingly, Livingston, New Jersey has only logged into my blog 1.388 times. I've had over 700 blogs which means my mom is reading each entry less than two times. Seriously, Mom, what's up with that?!!!!
- Finally -- and I always love ending with this -- people have found my blog using 1,878 different word combinations in google. The last google entry to find my blog was "where can find sex massage in hanoi". Yup, that's for real.

Thanks for all the support from around the world!

Check those stats for Livingston - I definitely read each entry a few times a day not only to see your blog but to read the comments as they come in. YOU ARE AMAZING!!!!

Suuuuuuuure you do, Mom!

And Dad, you need to sign in more at work. I've got like one hit in Parsippany over the past month.

ben i've always wondered if people who read thru Google Reader show up in stats like this. do you know the answer to that?

also, parsippany is my new favorite town name ever.

Someone asked me that google reader question before and to be honest, I have no idea. I would assume that it does not show up on analytics but that is just a guess. Next time you go to a random town, read my blog and I'll tell you if that town showed up. However, that probably doesn't make sense since I'm assuming your IP address is always DC.

i will be on a ranch outside of arthur, NE in a month and i will have to remember to deal with my grandparent's dial up and read your blog. that will be the perfect place to test this theory!
