My Web Sites…Some Countries That Visit Us

I was looking through the countries that visit my web site today. I appreciate everyone of you and I appreciate you coming by and reading or downloading or both. It is a pleasure to have you visit us. Of course, the top country is the United States with 10,853 hits this month, one of the ways we measure the visitors, China had 1259, Russia Fed., 856, France at 496 and it trickles on down through many, many nations, more than I knew we had. At the bottom there was Botswana at 1, Sudan at 2, Zambia at 2, Cambodia at 2, and Mongolia at 3. To you folks from those countries, thank you so much for spending some of your time with me. To those of you from some of the countries that I did not name, we appreciate you also. Feel free to download my stories, if you are interested or just stay and read them while you are on line. If there is something you would like to see or see more of, leave a comment under one of the post and I’ll be happy to address it or tell it. I’m sure your story would  be much more interesting than anything I could write. God Bless all of you….

You have a truly international website. I was wondering. Your most hits are from the United States where the principal language is English. The fact that you have so many hits from China, Russia, and France is due to the fact that English is the closest thing we have to an international language. If your site was bilingual or trilingual, I bet it would greatly increase the hits from non-English speaking countries as well. I think the next wave of the future insofar as the internet is concerned is the automatic computer translations of material that goes into the international internet. Facebook and Twitter already does that to some extent. I bet that would greatly increase your hits from non-English speaking countries. As it is today, most web surfers, who are mainly monolingual, just surf the internet of countries which speak their own language; and, in the case of English speakers, that is essentially the United States.
The expense of getting the software that will do automatic translations is probably prohibitive for small websites, but the widespread use of translation software will bring down the cost as the widespread usage always does in everything.

One of those small unknown countries that I had to look up was Bruni Darussalam as I had never heard of it. And since you have traveled that part of the world, Errol, you probably have seen or at least read about it. I try to read up on some of my readers, however, I don’t do a very good job of keeping up. There are so many that I don’t know…wow.

I am familiar with the country of Bruni, but not with Darussalam, at least not until the Olympics Parade of Nations last Spring. Bruni did have a couple of Olympic competitors this year. Before that, I was only familiar with the small country of Bruni, not its full name. I remember seeing Bruni on the nameplate of its United Nation’s delegate, but that is all it gave. Perhaps there was not enough space to put the Darussalam.
