Who uses (an update)

In February 2008, I posted "Who uses". I thought it was time for a quick update.

I have left the same Google Analytics code in place. And keep in mind - this has only been tracking users who hit the login page on and nowhere else - not within Application Express after logging in, not those users who go directly to Carl Backstrom's or Denes Kubicek's or Mark Lancaster's sample applications, nor those users who go directly to ProMED Mail. It only tracks those who go to the login page. Google Analytics - 20090918

So what can we conclude?

  1. United States still holds the top spot - not surprisingly since we tend to talk about APEX a little more (as a lot of us live and work in the U.S.)
  2. India has surpassed the United Kingdom
  3. Colombia shot up from 22 to 9.
  4. Romania moved from 8th to 4th - a strong showing.
  5. There were previously 122 distinct countries that touched Now it's up to 152 distinct countries.
  6. Some dude in New Caledonia checked out Application Express and never came back.

In hindsight, I should have left this Analytics JavaScript code in place in the System Message itself, so I could track who actually logs in and uses Application Express - I'll add it back now. But this explains why you see a difference with statistics from February 2008 with the Pages/Visit and Average Time on Site - I've only been tracking the login page.
