    Hey all,

    Just wanted to point out that when I was looking at some of my page stats I saw one that made me wonder what it was. The reference came from Google.com.eg. I took a look at it, and it seems to be written (I'm merely taking an educated guess here, however) in what I believe to be written in a middle eastern language.

    Somebody's taking the time to convert my text into something they can easily understand. smile

    Has anyone else noticed this? I think it's so cool that we almost have a universal translator between our cultures through Google.

    Hi GM smile yes, I get lots traffic from other countries also. It is interesting and agree, it feels good that a whole other culture is interested in my Hub or learning about our worlds. wink

    If you have Analytics it will show you where your traffic is coming from. Mine is almost exclusively US, India and the UK with a few from Saudi Arabia as well.

    According to Hubpages Traffic Sources page exactly half (15) of my top 30 traffic sources are Google pages, many of which cover countries which don't have English as a first language.  Also .eg is Egypt, as this page shows.

    i do get traffic from google.np also dont know which country it is. But i think if we use any country name in hub it will get registered in the same country google.

    1. BristolBoy profile image70
      BristolBoyposted 9 years agoin reply to this

      .np is Nepal.  Guessing you may have a hub which is relevant to Nepal (either Nepal is mentioned or it is relevent to Nepalese internet users).

    I get a lot of traffic from the Middle East, but I don't think of that as 'other countries' because I live here! The Internet doesn't care about boundaries, though some countries censor content pretty heavily.

        Signup for google analytical and create a url of hubpages.com(as a new project) and you will get stats on dashboard.

        Ty, I have written a long hub on Google Analytics. Would you be willing to take a look and see if it's helpful to you? If its still confusing, please let me know and I will try to explain further.
