Every now and then I have a peek at the numbers recorded by Google Analytics, a service that monitors traffic here at Ektoplazm. January 2009 was a busy month: 38,868 unique visitors and 147,022 unique page views were recorded. Downloads are more difficult to estimate as I am not tracking them rigorously, but it is very likely that Ektoplazm served up 50,000 free releases in the same period of time. Just for fun, I compiled a list of the top ten countries by unique visitors. Have a look:

United States: 3,734
Russia: 3,432
Germany: 2,766
Canada: 2,418
Greece: 1,758
United Kingdom: 1,690
Brazil: 1,577
India: 1,531
Mexico: 1,492
Ukraine: 1,023

It was also interesting to see all the major cities Ektoplazm visitors connect from: Moscow, Athens, Toronto, London, Kiev, Tel Aviv, St. Petersburg, Berlin, Mexico City, Skopje, Helsinki, Vienna, Lisbon, Sao Paulo, Prague, Bangalore, and Munich. Very international!

  • Basilisk says:

    I think it is a combination of proximity and a large tech-savvy population. Psytrance really isn’t all that big in America.

    Wow! So you do have more russians hanging out here than americans ;) hehe
    I wouldn’t say it’s because of being tech-savvy, it’s a lot more to do with mentality (imho). It doesn’t matter though, what’s cool is how it connects us on rather deep levels. And I l-l-l-love it! Peace!
