Interesting Geographic Patterns of Acces to My Blog
These are for the past week. I normally don't look at this sort of geographic information, but I do track access and there is some geographic information in that. What I was seeing was odd to me, so I looked a bit further. This first table is from the Stats tab for my blog in Blogger. I believe that tracks both Google+ access and Web access to the site. While the overall volume is not that great, look at all the Pageviews from Russia. There are quite a few from France as well.
This next table is from StatCounter, which I use more than I use the Stats page in Blogger to look at access. The Russian access is completely missing here, so I assume that is all via Google+. I can't explain why the numbers for France are higher here, but one reason to use multiple counters is to address this sort of discrepancy.
