Who reads our blog VI

(Part I, part II, part III, part IV, part V)

There are several interesting trends.

One is growing internationalization of readership. The United States provides the most clicks of any country, and yet that's only 22% of the total! I haven't posted the long tails of these graphs, but they tell the same story: Countries that are in 30th place onward provide a much greater proportion of clicks than they used to.

Two is that the Egyptian click flow has grown from trickle to deluge.

Three is that we have lots and lots of Saudi readers. Especially surprising when you compare relative populations of the top seven countries.

Four is the appearance of a new category of visitor: They are in disguise, hiding their identities behind proxies. In 14th place, they provide 1.5% of clicks.

  1. El Naschie's Rosa Al-Youssef column is up for Wednesday, November 3. Massage psychological knot. Original Arabic or Google's English translation.

    Name drops today include Pythagoras of Samos, and founders of psychology Sigmund Freud, Carl Jung, Alfred Adler and someone named Schwartz, I don't know who that is.

    He is still talking about priests in ancient Egyptian temples, so the Alexandria University ranking scandal is still on his mind. And this last section is remarkably bitter. I don't know who he's talking about:

    لكنها عقد داخل النفوس تكلم عنها مؤسسو علم النفس مثل فرويد ويونج وآدلر وشوارتس. But held within the souls spoke about the founders of psychology such as Freud, Jung, Adler and Schwartz. علي سبيل المثال كان هناك شخص تافه وللأسف مشهور وأعرفه ولكن احتراما لصحيفة «روزاليوسف» لا يمكن أن أذكر اسمه. For example there was a petty person, unfortunately famous and I know, but out of respect for the newspaper «Rosalyousef» can not remember his name.

    بالإضافة لاحترامي لنفسي فاننى لن أعطيه فرصة للمهاترات العلنية ، دفع هذا «الرجل» رشوة لشخص أجنبي أتفه منه لنشر أخبار كاذبة وكتابة مقالات قذف عني وعن أعمالي وحتي عن الجامعات التي انتميت إليها. In addition to respect for myself, I will not give him an opportunity for public polemics, pay the «man» a bribe to a foreign person from trivial for the dissemination of false news and writing articles about me and my ejaculation and even universities that did not belong to them.

    ماذا يستفيد مثل هذا المريض.. What benefit such a patient .. بالطبع لا شيء سوي تدليك للعقد النفسية التي يعاني منها. Of course, nothing but a massage for mental suffering.

    Wow. I guess he's saying someone petty, a famous person (hence not I), is writing false articles about him and even about universities he isn't associated with. And that person needs psychological help. Is that right?

  2. Or maybe that famous person is paying El Naschie Watch (hence the "bribe" he speaks of) to defame him? By that famous person does he mean Mohamed ElBaradei or Ahmed Zuwail perhaps?

  3. Most probably he meant Ahmed Zewail. The great man thought that Ahmed Zewail paid nature to write their famous article about him.

    As to the title of the Rosa article, it should be "Massage of psychological complexes".
    Of course the great man should be expert in these complexes because he suffered -and still- many of them, for example superiority complex, inferiority complex,....etc.

  4. > Four is the appearance of a new category of visitor: They are in disguise, hiding their identities behind proxies. In 14th place, they provide 1.5% of clicks.

    This gives little info without knowing your activity levels. Given that this blog has about 50-100 dedicated readers, the anonymous accesses could easily be coming from a single reader.

  5. haha. Yes, they could be. ;)

  6. Anonymous, your estimate is rather wrong. :D

  7. For a blog with such a narrow scope, we have a surprisingly large number of readers. More than Anonymous thinks. But still few enough so that someone from a country far down the list can affect its statistics if he hangs out here all day.
