Stationary Engines Worldwide

I re-instated a website monitor recently to get a feel for where our site visitors were coming from and from where they were referred.

29 30.53% United States 25 26.32% United Kingdom 22 23.16% Australia 5 5.26% Canada 4 4.21% Netherlands 3 3.16% Argentina 1 1.05% New Zealand 1 1.05% India 1 1.05% Mexico 1 1.05% Uruguay 1 1.05% Germany 1 1.05% Japan 1 1.05% France

These results seem pretty consistent week on week, and I was surprised to see how much of a block the English speaking countries make out of the total, expecting to see perhaps a greater interest on other language-speaking countries.

Confirming my long-held view about monitor resolutions:

53 53.54% 1024x768 25 25.25% 1280x1024 19 19.19% 800x600 2 2.02% 1152x864

Lots of other statistics, but nothing of more than passing interest to the group.

The site is a credit to you, if there is another similar site containing half as much information as yours, I have yet to see it. Apart from Finland nearly always being number two in the (by country) stats over the last 12 months for my tractor site, the stats for it are very similar to yours.

While the Webalizer stats which are used for my sites give me much useful information, they do not include the monitor resolutions. I recently took the decision to design for 1024x765 and above, the stats you have provided and the fact that my sites are still usable without having to move the bottom scroll bar which appears at 800x600 lead me to feel confident that I made the right choice. Thankfully the 640x480 resolution which was still common a few years ago no longer appears to be a factor which should be considered, designing for it really restricted the layout and resulted in something which looked pretty grim for those using high resolutions.
