And the Winner is…California!

Okay, I lied.

I said awhile ago in the comments I wasn’t going to check my stats for two months.  Well, I got this overwhelming urge.  You know how it goes.

I like to get my Google world map out and watch it light up.

What!?  My Michigan viewers are in second place! And California is in first place.

And to keep with the agricultural theme of my last post, here we have the winning orange, which of course symbolizes California.  And the sad corn, which symbolizes Michigan.

We get some of our oranges from California.  And today, surprise!  I found out this orange is from South Africa.  This orange traveled a long way to my mouth.

And you might get some of your corn from Michigan.  In the future we will even put it in our cars.  An idea which defeats the purpose of decreasing our reliance on fossil fuels…because fossil fuels are used in the manufacturing process of ethanol (squeaking it out of corn).  But don’t even get me started on that one…

I just don’t understand my home state.  Sure, the population is higher in California than Michigan.  And the sun shines a helluva lot more.  Is that it?  Is it the SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) factor?  Are people in Michigan depressed and that can’t make their way over to Wilson’s Words and Pictures? 


Okay, here is the breakdown,

Since I’m a US citizen, I’ll start with the states first:

California comes in 1st with the most visits.  And!  This is most important to me, average time on site is 5:28.  We are operating on hours and minutes here people.  Not dreamtime. Sorry.  But I recognize dreamtime.

Michigan comes in 2nd place.  Average time on site is 1:18.  What?!  Now we also have ADD.  Not surprising.

Pennesylvania is 3rd!  I would never have of guessed this. Average time on site is :42.  Alright, a little more ADD than Michigan.  You guys need to eat a better breakfast in the morning.

This is all averaged out between cities of each state.

World Wide (in order of supposedly decreasing importance)

United States: Average time on site: 1:53 seconds.

Canada: Average time on site: 1:58 seconds. 5 seconds more than the US!  Yea!

United Kingdom: :47 seconds.  Okay, what is wrong with you guys.  Try to keep up, eh?

Where in the world do you get the majority of your visitors?
