Where My Searches Come From

(Originally posted 2007-12-06.)

This is really just a test of some Firefox Extension code of mine… but it’s kind of interesting in its own right…

The following is a table containing the country-level summary of Search URLs that somehow get a reader to my blog on any given day. (I have another table ranking search terms.)

Most days the USA and India are at the top of the list. And there’s usually a smattering of other countries represented, mainly in Europe.

What’s interesting is that readers from India seem to be mainly interested in JCL, utilities and DFSORT usage. Whereas those from the USA, Europe, China and Japan appear to be mainly interested in Performance- and Architecture-related topics.

I can’t prove this to you but the picture outlined above stays pretty much static.

And then there’re the searches explicitly on names of women. đŸ™‚
