Last week my music and travel blog The Roxborogh Report reached one million total hits. Five years ago I remember thinking the passing of 10,000 hits was worth celebrating, so to pass one million is something I’m pretty thrilled about, not to mention thankful for. So a big thank you if you’ve ever visited and I hope you’ve enjoyed the photos, the destinations and the music musings.
Through the course of nearly six years and exactly 400 posts, the top 10 countries for The Roxborogh Report are a combination of who you’d expect as well as a few surprises. More than 55% of my total web traffic has come from the USA with my home country, New Zealand, in second place on 15%. In third spot it’s the UK with 5.1%, then Germany on 2.7% in fourth with Australia rounding out the top five with 2% of the total traffic.
France and Canada (sixth and seventh) are both sitting at 1.2% with the Netherlands in eighth on .7%. And for whatever reason, my thoughts on popular music and travel have proved popular enough in both Russia (ninth) and the Ukraine (10th) to give both those countries .6% of my total hits.
In more recent years The Roxborogh Report has generated good support from Brazil and the UAE and I hope to grow these markets further in the years to come. But wherever you’re from and whether you’ve visited once or a hundred times, thanks again. I hope you’ll come back soon.
