2017

THE NUMBER OF CITIES FOR EACH COUNTRY FOR VISITORS

This report shows the spread of visitors without any regard for the volume of visitors.

During the Year 2017 Website Visitors came from 4990 different towns and cities scattered throughout 169 different countries (as Google Analytics counts countries). Below are two parallel lists for those 169 countries. Each list records the number of cities within that country, from which cities visitors came to this website.

In the column on the left side those 169 countries are listed in alphabetical order, from Albania to Zimbabwe, with the number of cities from which visitors came behind each country name.

In the column on the right side those same countries are listed with a focus on the number of towns and cities from which visitors came for each country. Here the country with the most cities from which visitors came to the website is listed first, i.e. the USA with visitors from 3432 different cities. The countries where all the visitors came from only one city (or from the whole country in the case of small countries) are listed alphabetically towards the end of the column.

As you will see, there are 92 countries where all the visitors came from only 1 city in that country. In 30 of those 92 countries there was in fact only 1 website visit from each of those 30 (mostly remote) countries. But from the other 62 countries which also list only 1 city, there were in fact multiple visits in the course of the year. It is just that all those visits came from the 1 city in that country.

For example: For the country of Singapore all visitors came from 1 city, but there were in fact 237 visits from that 1 city-state of Singapore. Thus there is no relation between the number of cities in a country from which visitors came to my website, and the actual number of visitors from that country.

My purpose for this particular report is not to give the number of website visitors. Visitor numbers don't feature in this particular report. The purpose for this particular report is to document the vast spread of website visitors from all around the world.

Without this report I would not know that visitors from Japan actually came from 24 different towns in Japan, and that visitors from Norway actually came from 25 different towns in that country. Even from Kazakhstan visitors came from 3 different cities. And visitors from Turkey came from 11 different cities in Turkey. etc.

The number of visitors from so many different cities in non-English-speaking countries was a surprise to me. I had no idea that some people in Bhutan and in Nepal and in Saudi Arabia and in Iceland and in the Farao Islands, etc. were visiting my website.

That is the point which is highlighted by this particular report. So here are the two columns, with the number of cities for each country listed immediately after the country name.

TOTAL = 4990 CITIES

("FYROM" stands for "Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia".)

Countries with more visitor cities didn't necessarily bring more visitors to this website than countries with less visitor cities. Thus, visitors from the Netherlands came from 65 towns in the Netherlands, while visitors from South Africa came from only 52 towns. But as far as actual visitor numbers are concerned: there were more than four times as many visitors from South Africa than from the Netherlands. So a higher number of towns is not related to actual visitor numbers.

Visitors to the website really did come from all over the world, including from some of the most remote human settlements.
