I started kimclodfelter.com on WORDPRESS.ORG in March of last year primarily to promote the forthcoming biography “CLODDY.”
One of the plugins on my site is called JETPACK. This plugin records data on how many people visit this site, where they came from, and other data such as how they connected to this site (E.g. Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+, etc.)
I accidentally stumbled across this report and was shocked to discover how many countries were represented in the data showing the number of visitors. This website was up and running for about ten months in 2014 with a total number of visitors of 2700 which translates to 270 per month or 9 per day. These are modest numbers, but it’s a start at building a platform to launch the book.
Countries (# of visitors)
United States (2340), Mexico (15), Canada (5), Dominican Republic (1), Costa Rica (2), Panama (2), El Salvador (1), Brazil (180), Columbia (7), Venezuela (2), Ecuador (6), Peru (3), Chile (5), Argentina (8), Paraguay (2), Ethiopia (1), Morocco (1), Algeria (2), Israel (1), Pakistan (3), India (2), United Arab Emirates (1), Bangladesh (1), Indonesia (3), Philippines (4), Thailand (2), Malaysia (2), Taiwan (1), Turkey (3), Greece (8), Italy (24), Spain (14), Bulgaria (1), Romania (1), Croatia (1), Hungary (1), Poland (1), United Kingdom (1), Portugal (9), Switzerland (1), Germany (3), Netherlands (9), Latvia (1), Belgium (2).
49 countries in all according to Jetpack stats.
I don’t know how or why visitors from so many far away countries came to visit this website, but I hope it bodes well for the book when it is published.
Anyway, Happy New Year to all those visiting this site! And thanks for your interest. Let your friends know about this project “CLODDY.”
