A map of hits to this site by time zone. Note the small bar for zone -11, perhaps the least populated time zone on the planet. So, who's been here from Samoa? Or was it Midway Island? I know you're out there...  Posted by Hello



  • I've been following my time zone hits lately too. The differences are interesting. I get 60 -65% of my hits from the eastern time zone as opposed to 40+% for you. I don't get hits from the time zone you mentioned although I do get a consist small number from both Aus/NZ and Japan. I notice we both get the same hits from UCT0 tz. I thought it was someone in Britain but I now believe those hits are coming from France

  • Well, the Eastern time zone makes up about 60-65% of the population of Canada so your results are less skewed than mine. My pacific time zone is way overrepresented at the expense of Eastern and and to a lesser extent Atlantic zones.

    In a way it makes sense because I'm based in B.C. and when I write about provincial politics it's about BC, but I still find it surprising since I am originally from Ontario and most of my family and friends are still there (and I figured they made up a big percentage of the hits).

    Also, France is in time zone +1 so unless Site Meter is counting wrong, those hits must be from the UK/Ireland (or Africa, I suppose).

  • I believe Portugal is in the 0 timezone as well. It could be a distant relative of Skeeter!

  • You are right about France being in a different tz. I was basing the French connection on the fact that I occasionally turn up the French translation of the blog in the referrers list.
