Have you noticed the new gadgets on my blog? Three or four days ago I added the NeoCounter who's online script, and the last month's visitors script. Pretty cool, methinks. I always knew I got a lot of traffic from the US, UK, India etc, but didn't really have a way to analyze it before.

So I'm surprised that I get almost as many visitors from the US as I do from the UAE, and that UAE visitors only account for a little over a quarter of all visits. Hmmm, I thought it must be at least half.

Actually the US figure is probably a red herring - I think the script's author might have assumed that .com domains are American - how many sites do you know of that end in .us?

The script analyzes IP addresses for visitors, then compares them with the database of IP#'s that tells which country, and even city, each IP# is associated with... it's got nothing to do with what site, if any, your visitors come here from.

Keefie, how about making your site banner at the top of the page clickable so it takes you back to your blog's home page? Makes it easier to go back and forth. Keep blogging!

SD - nope, you don't have to pay. Go to, login to the members area, and go to edit settings. Oh bugger. The right hand panel used to show a bunch of options, including the scrolling option, but it's gone! Ah well.

It's not that expensive to pay, so I would consider it, but for the fact that there is nothing to guarantee that functionality is available even if you pay.

I have really problems with Neocounter when I had to pay because the free version expired. Neocounter is really a mistery to me. Greettings.
