Perspective from Japan on whaling and whale meat, a spot of gourmet news, and monthly updates of whale meat stockpile statistics



My Traffic

Where are all my hits coming from? Here's a map of my last 100 hits:

The red dot is the most recent visit, the green dots are the last 10 visits, and the white dots are the remaining 90 visits (you can see they are quite concentrated).

This is pretty much a typical picture. Most hits seem to come from across Europe, the US, Australia, New Zealand, and Japan, but I get the ocassional visitor from places like the Caribbean and South Asia as well. I've never seen anyone show up from South America, Africa, the Middle East, or East Asia yet. I figure most of the world doesn't care about whaling, which is the major topic of my site.

My country share chart is quite interesting too:
Would never have thought I'd be so popular in Sweden, but perhaps I have a special fan there :-) A lot of my Japan visits will be by myself, as I often go searching back through my archives for things I have posted about in the past, but I seem to have visitors from all around Japan.

Biggest surprises? I once got a hit from the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries of Japan, and another from Infometrics.

Hi David,
Kind of a bit embarrasing that you can check out the hits;-). It was the same thing back at Jen's blog when I checked out George 's site twice and he asked me if I wanted info on him, haha...

As a matter of fact I check out most names...
Hi Ann,

I found your comment under the Enlightenment post, and I presume you meant to post it here, so I've moved it over :-)

Of course, I'm glad that you see fit to visit my blog so frequently. It's nice to have you here, even though you and I never seem to make any progress on this discussions, ever :-) You aren't the only one from Sweden though, I have seen at least one other Swedish visitor :-)
Hi! David-san,

I know any blog has the access analyzer. Probably you also have the remote host info of any access.So,the idiots of anti-whaling NGOs,who like to post harassment statements, should remember the system.

If the harassment is terrible,with the control board,you will be able to reject the access of the idiots.
For the lack of this info,some Japanese BBS had no choice but to close.

>You aren't the only one from >Sweden though, I have seen at >least one other Swedish visitor

The two persons are the visitors of your site from Sweden.
Also the graph shows 19% ! The share rate is high.

What about 43% from Japan?

Hi Y/H-san,

>Probably you also have the remote host info of any access.

Yes, I do have access to certain information about my visitors.

> For the lack of this info,some Japanese BBS had no choice but to close.

Yes, I was dissappointed to see that the Fisheries Agency BBS was shut down. I suppose there are plenty of other Japanese BBS's where Japanese people can discuss the issue (although I guess there are very few who feel strongly against it).

>What about 43% from Japan?

I found out how that graph works.
What it actually shows is a breakdown of just the last 100 visitors. So Ann's share has actually decreased quite a bit since then.
I appear to get hits from all over Japan, although I'm not sure who the readers are, besides you and myself.

Thanks for your comment!
