Hi, Ray here again.
The Curry Focus website has been around for 4 years and has turned out to be very popular with curry lovers all over the world.
The website traffic keeps growing and 2010 saw a 17% increase in visitors over 2009 and if this growth continues we’re soon going to increase the hosting package to make sure that nobody misses any curry information.
The main source of traffic continues to be the UK with 78% of visitors coming from the UK. The top 10 countries are shown in the following table.
|2010 Position||Country||2009 Position|
As you can see, the countries with the highest number of visitors have hardly changed over the year with the top 6 country positions remaining unchanged.
And once again, visitors from an increasing number of countries drop by the Curry Focus website. There were visitors from 181 different countries and territories in 2010 (we are gradually reaching the whole of the world).
We were glad to see visitors for the first time from Anguilla, Armenia, Belarus, Bhutan, Cameroon, Cuba, Dominica, Faroe Islands, Gabon, Greenland, Grenada, Haiti, Laos, Liberia, Mongolia, Montenegro, Montserrat, New Caledonia, Palau, Saint Kitts and Nevis and Timor-Leste.
My natural curiosity had me checking up on where a couple of places were. Palau is in the Pacific Ocean about 500 miles east of the Philippines – it used to be administered by the USA but became independent in 1994 – an alternative spelling of the country name is Belau (which is more like how the country name is pronounced). Timor-Leste is the official name for East Timor, a country that used to be part of Indonesia.
As mentioned earlier, most visitors were from the UK. Within the UK, most visitors came from London (33.6% of UK visitors), followed by Manchester (4.8% of UK visitors) and Birmingham (3.6% of UK visitors).
The US states providing most visitors were California (15.9% of USA traffic), New York (8.7% of USA traffic) and Texas (7.7% of USA traffic).
It’s really great to see so many curry lovers visiting the Curry Focus website. We hope you’ll continue to drop by to see the new curry recipes and blogs. Don’t forget to tell your friends about the great Curry Focus website – it’s FREE.
