It would be interesting to see how your average web visitor time spent and page view count changes depending on the country your in. Might cost more time tracking it than its worth though. idk.
A few things come to mind.
When you were in Thailand last time I remember some guys were flaming you and you turned comments off for awhile because it got so bad. High traffic but at times the wrong kind of web audience I suppose.
In Africa, based on your tone I'm guessing your web stats went down. Limited web audience. The rough guides guy whom I can't recall his name hasn't posted as often since then. I liked his input however.
I've no evidence for any of this but with the right tracking from location to location, it could be a valuable data set resource for travel bloggers to draw from. Although if your overall web traffic is going up (or down) then its a moving target. hmm.
I'll halfway bet that a countries web audience pull will coincide somewhat with the tourism receipts wayfinding map. Curious to hear how traffic fluctuates from Guatemala to Peru as its a move within Latin America, and not across the pond.
Side note: According to the searchenginewatch website for US based searches, Las Vegas is the most often searched for city. Vegas is a great place for people who are bad at math.
I also would like to generate these types of statistics. I believe we will in the next year, mainly to sell country specific advertisers.
Travel for the average person is not global, they have a once in a lifetime dream, then normally tend to repeat the place until they die.
Readers can write angry emails when I leave a country, and will write to ask me to return.
Very few people are curious about anything and everything, they will say they are curious, however it is obvious on some subject they are more curious than others.
Africa does not give readers any frame of reference for comparision. This is why food photos work so good, everyone can talk about eating.
dude it is really interesting writing and sharing actually i liked it. and i can call it to good work...
