If you go way down to the bottom of the page at this site's Alexa stats, you'll find a section titled "Aplawrence.com traffic rank in other countries". You can expand that list also; here's some of it as it was Saturday morning:
With Alexa, big numbers mean less popularity, which means that by and large, the French don't like me much.. hey, my maternal grandparents were French (well, French Canadian), but apparently that's not enough to win favor in France. On the other hand, we do better in Moldova than here in the U.S.A.
Unfortunately, Google Analytics doesn't let me break out Moldovan visitors easily, though I do know that we had 62 visitors from there in the last month. With a bit of effort I could parse my log files myself to see the details, but I'm too lazy. However, this odd little quirk caused me to check out a few other sites. I happened to look at IttyBiz.com and found that site ranks as number 402 in Eritrea, which makes them just as popular as Aol.com is in Slovakia..
Does your site have a fan base in an unexpected place? Or somewhere like France apparently not liking your style?
Got something to add? Send me email.

Today’s computers are not even close to a 4-year-old human in their ability to see, talk, move, or use common sense. One reason, of course, is sheer computing power. It has been estimated that the information processing capacity of even the most powerful supercomputer is equal to the nervous system of a snail—a tiny fraction of the power available to the supercomputer inside [our] skull.
