MadTV: The journal

Obscure hit of the week I
04/03/2005
There's a MadTV feature I've thought about initiating for a long time. I would call it something like "Obscure hit of the week." You see I love site statistics and one of my little pleasures since getting my own domain name is to see where in the world my site visitors come from. There've been some weird trends to watch on that front too; like for a long time a high proportion of my visitors were from Ecuador. Why they came I do not know. But I can say one thing: they were probably Flash fans because once my site became XHTML, they stopped coming.

So anyway, to cut a long story short my "Obscure hit of the week" award goes to my visitor from Palau. If you are from Palua contact me within the next week and you will get a Gmail invitation as your prize (hey, I'm poor it's all I've got!).

I still think Mongolia should have won it. After all, it's probably the only computer in the country and it keeps coming back!

Neat idea! I never know what to do with my gmail invitations.

(Thanks for looking at my code, by the way. I'm happy it didn't offend. I didn't write it, though -- just tinkered.)

I get great glee out of checking my stats as well. Too bad no one visits anymore. I suppose lack of content might have been an issue. Search strings are fun too.

I get a lot of hits from China, but most of them are automated scripts spewing IIS exploits. You know what I think? I think there should be a prize for the first person to actually get rid of their 50 invites.
