Hello, Out There!

Hello Out There!

This map shows where the hits on this blog have come from, since its inception.

A notable exception: Iran shows zero hits. However, I know that people in Iran have seen https://robertlovespi.wordpress.com/2012/12/02/love-letters-from-iran/ — but access to the Internet from inside Iran is difficult. Hits from inside Iran show up on this map, no doubt, but they show up as hits from other, less repressive countries.

I also don’t believe for one moment that no one from China has seen my blog. The suspiciously high number of hits from Taiwan make me suspect Internet traffic is simply being routed from The People’s Republic, through Taiwan, to get to the rest of the world.

Information wants to be free. People do, too — and are finding ways around those forces which seek to control us.

    I am not so sure where the ‘hits’ do come from. I once tried that Alexa rankings site and found out the majority of my visitors came from Russia. The stats stated otherwise.
    Anyway, I am simply voicing out what others had probably noticed too.

    • The number from Russia does seem ridiculously high. I wonder if what we are noticing is real — and, if it is, what is causing it?

        What is surprising for me is that only 121 Russians visited my site. Am totally perplexed.
        Frankly, this is not a big issue for me but I guess I need to know what’s the mystery is about.

  2. All I can say is: that’s a TON of hits! Seriously! I hope to get there someday. Just started a fictional blog http://www.theapocalypsebites.com a week ago. Maybe someday you can share you’re secret with me. 🙂

  3. I had a hit from mainland China, and am now chasing Mongolia and Greenland.
