Big in Oman
I recently checked out my site at Alexa.com and got some interesting insight into the traffic and visitors of this blog (regularly I use statcounter.com). This is some of the amusing tidbits that Alexa could tell me about my blog:
Foreignsalaryman.blogspot.com's three-month global Alexa traffic rank is 539,419. While we estimate that 59% of the site's visitors are in Japan, where it is ranked #35,958, it is also popular in Oman, where it is ranked #3,994. The fraction of visits to it referred by search engines is about 3%. The site has been online since 2000. Foreignsalaryman.blogspot.com's visitors view an average of 2.2 unique pages per day.
Interesting and a little odd considering that I've hardly seen any visitors from Oman through my regular Statcounter and since the blog was created first in 2007... Furthermore, Alexa was also happy to tell me a little more details about my reader demographics:
Foreignsalaryman.blogspot.com is visited more frequently by females who are in the age range 35-44, have no children, are graduate school educated and browse this site from home.
Fascinating stuff, but somehow I get the feeling that Alex is not really getting the facts completely straight... But how can I tap into the amazing popularity I seem to have among females aged 35-44 living in Oman?!
