By adding Wilfried as a permablogger a few weeks ago, we not only gained an interesting colleague, but extended Times & Seasons beyond the borders of the United States. Over the past 24 hours, I have been tracking traffic at Times & Seasons to get a glimpse at our readership around the world. Here is what I found.
Times and Seasons just reached another visitor milestone today, crossing 300,000 in the past year. We now attract about 2,000 visitors per day. Not bad for a blog that is rarely linked outside of the Bloggernacle. Below are maps tracking our visitors from midnight last night through 6:00 pm today (Wisconsin time) at six-hour intervals. Sitemeter does not tell me the lag times on these maps, but you can perceive the changes in traffic throughout the day.
December 7 @ Midnight
December 7 @ 6:00 a.m.
December 7 @ Noon
December 7 @ 6:00 p.m.
Obviously, we are getting some attention from people outside the U.S. (Hello, Greenland! Or are those people at the tip of Brazil?) As far as I can tell, we do not hear from many of our non-U.S. visitors in the comments, but I would love to know where our readers outside of the U.S. are located. Please tell us in a comment!
We also seem to have corrected for the East Coast Bias that we perceived early in the blog’s life, though it appears to me that hits from the East Coast are disproportionate to the number of members found in those states.
