I like to look to see where searches are coming from. Sometimes I don't recognize which country it is until I google it! I just checked a hub and found searches from
google.fi - Finland
google. se - Sweden
google. dk - Denmark
google. sa - South Africa
google. ph - Philippines
google. au - Australia
among more common ones like UK and CA. This was on my Max Martin hub.
Where do some of your more obscure searches come from and on which hub, no links.
hmmm.. no one has interesting domains searching for one of your hubs, or no one is here tonight? I guess I'm sort of geeky that way.
I seem to get more searches from these places than the UK or the USA on al my hubs under both my names and on my website - even in the spots where they rank number one and get steady traffic.
I found this helpful page with all the country codes.

SA is not South Africa, it's Saudi Arabia. South Africa is ZA..
On that same hub, I found
On another one I found
Has anyone ever had a search from Iceland or Christmas Island..?

Hi Maita, nice #'s. I think it's fun to see where searches originate. I like that HP has this handy feature on our hubs.
Mark, 2 from Iceland, cool.
Enjoy the day!
My profile has been searched by people from 167 different countries in total!
- Sheessh.. there's nowhere to hide if you fall in love today
US - UK - CA - Are the top 3.
why would you want to hide?
I just checked the map in analytics and I've been visited from 189 countries, which I'm sure some include hubbers.
PD- I have 459 searches from NZ.
more visitors I found, then I am leaving for the beach!
Papua New Guinea
It's interesting, humbling, amazing to see that your page has been viewed all over the world.
It's how the internet works. Still good though.
It is rather interesting and humbling, now I want to figure out the missing countries... [it's a teacher thing.. and one of my grandfathers read entire sets of encyclopedias] I was very pleased to see considerable time spent on one of my hubs from the Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea, probably in reference to WW11. I don't think they were shopping!
Maita, no problem with #'s, that's fine! I'm simply curious.
Oh that's pretty cool 189 countries!
We ought to have a Sweepstake on who gets the most from Ross Dependancy and North Korea
Don't worry - 376 of your kiwi visits were Travelexpresso and I
Cool, lots of visits from almost all countries!! HP writers are just popular!

I've read a lot about the importance of doing keyword research, but then you also get the impression that to really do that research properly can take a long time unless you get lucky early on or really know what you are doing. So I wonder, with some people pumping out huge amounts of hubs, are...

It seems to me they are. You find out what's searched on the Internet and put it in the title of your article. But it seems to me, some of it is just logic; What will someone likely type into the search engine? No one is going to search for "how to pay attention instead of getting wrapped up...

I don't know if it is just a coincidence, but Googster is boycotting many of my articles that substitute banksters for bankers. Screwgle.

After editing one of my hubs, I noticed that it took forever to load and watched to see what it was waiting for, and i.betrad.com showed up. I couldn't find too much about it while searching. But one post associated it with malware. I finally had to escape and try again, and the...

Can somebody please explain what the Hell Google is pratting about at ? I have no idea what is going on or why... What I do know is that one minute I can use Google to search for things that I was actually looking for and now all I get is links to the Commercial World which is about as much use to...
