Update  - Stats for September 2009

Unfortunately, it may be a while before I am able to update this page again.  FastHosts' Matrixstats program that provides these stats is  currently 'timing out' each time I try to run it.

Maybe we're not missing very much by having no further updates.  It's now about a year since the site had a visitor from a 'new country'.

Peter Stubbs:  October 1, 2009

Update  - Stats for January 2012

After not having looked at the monthly stats for visitors by country for over two years, I decided to have a look at them for Jan 2012.  It took a couple of hours to compile the figures.

Here (below) are the results for January 2012:

-  They are very similar to the results that I was getting when I stopped compiling the figures in 2009. 

-  There were no visitors in January 2012 from any of the five countries that , as far as I know, still have to visit EdinPhoto:  Comoros, Mayotte Western Sahara, Galapagos Islands and Antarctica.

So I'm not intending to spend time compiling any more stats for visitors  to the EdinPhoto site, split by country, in the foreseeable future.

Visitors to EdinPhoto

Reconciliation of Figures
in case anybody is interested!

1.  I've listed the countries that have visited the EdinPhoto web site, by:

(a)  date of first visit (on this page) and

(b)  continent or sub-continent here.

The total number of countries reported to have visited the EdinPhoto web site as shown in the pages for (a) and (b) are very similar, but not identical.

Both sources reported visitor from from about 240 different countries up to November 2008.

2.  Reasons why the stats in 1(a) and 1(b) above are not identical are that I have used the countries and categories provided by Matrixstats for 1(a) above and  the  Internet World stats web site for 1(b) above.

In particular:
