Big in Oman

I recently checked out my site at and got some interesting insight into the traffic and visitors of this blog (regularly I use This is some of the amusing tidbits that Alexa could tell me about my blog:'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.'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: 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?!

Maby some Omanian blogger had your blogspot-adress from the year 2000 to 2006?

Maybe there was a Salaryman living in Oman, was a huge hit and then they moved on to the Japanese version, and all those 30 something Oman chicks grew older and became your new fans

But most oddly enough from the picture you posted was the google search criteria "can cousins marry in japan"

better watch out, there must be lots of angry, AK waving husbands from Oman looking for "that Salaryman #!@*%$!#".

No holidays near there, ok?

Well, all those hordes of Omanian graduate school women are as welcome as anyone to come around here and read.

I just wish they would comment more...
