Was browsing through the data on the audience that hit my blogs and found it fascinating. Based on the total data from "all time", expectedly, Singapore is the top origin. And as would be reasonably expected, the US and UK would feature among the top few given that my posts are in English after all.
In some months, page views from UK, France and Germany actually outstrips Singapore! I wonder what's the cause of the attraction?
But I thought it was strange to see among the Top 10 coming from Russia, Latvia, Poland and Ukraine as well. Either there are many web hosting services actually located in those countries, or they are some kind of bots that are hitting on my blogs for some purposes that I have yet to comprehend. I'm sure the topical musings in my posts couldn't be of such tremendous interest to attract readers from these countries. Or do they?
I checked out some of the Russian origin URLs (*.ru) indicated in my Blogspot data. They seem to be selling various kinds of paraphernalia - e.g. knife shaped credit cards, dog repellant devices and sleeping masks with a "memory". Fascinating products! But I still couldn't fathom why these were sources of referrals to my blog. I certainly didn't see any links. Wonder why?
It's such a fascinating world we live in!
