Blogging statistics – cities
Over on my other blog I recently remarked on the countries people came from to read my blogs: Notes from underground: Blog statistics – countries, because of new statistics provided by Amatomu. But the cities they come from is even more interesting.
The first thing that stands out is that only people in Pretoria and Cape Town seem to be interested in family history and genealogy. Perhaps that is because there are archives in those cities, but there are also archives in other cities like Pietermaritzburg, Durban, Bloemfontein etc. So why do readers of the family history blog only seem to come from those cities?
The second thing is that most readers of this blog seem to come from Johannesburg, whereas my Blogger blog, Notes from Underground, seems to get more readers from Pretoria.
But hang on a minute — there in the Khanya statistics I see Verwoerdburg listed.
What kind of stone has Amatomu just crawled out from under? Sponsored by the Mail and Guardian, nogal?
Verwoerdburg changed its name to Centurion about fifteen years ago, before being incorporated with Pretoria and a few other places into the new megacity of Tshwane. So perhaps if “Verwoerdburg” and Pretoria were put together under Tshwane, they might outnumber the readers from Johannesburg.
But “Verwoerdburg”! That’s like the dinosaurs who wave the old apartheid South African flag at rugby matches (even when a black guy scores a try).
Interesting things, statistics, though I’m not sure how accurate they are.
