Google Earth Blog Stats for 2007

I’ve just reviewed the 2007 year-end statistics for Google Earth Blog (GEB), and it was again an amazing year. GEB had 10,017,165 page loads on the web site (this does not include RSS readers which amounted to over 5 million requests in 2007). There were also 5,778,657 unique visitors to the web site. I’m happy to report that the GEB readership continues to be very international – visitors came from 229 different countries. Largest in the US, followed by UK, Canada, Germany, India, Spain, Netherlands, Australia, France, Italy, Japan, Brazil, Turkey, Mexico, China, etc. . Special thanks to Google Adsense for helping make it possible for me to dedicate the time to research/write this blog. Also, thanks to the many sponsors through Google Adsense, and a few direct sponsors on GEB. The biggest thanks to the Google Earth team for a great program and most importantly to the MANY GEB readers!
In 2006 there were 7,977,793 page loads, and 3,744,498 unique visitors for comparison.

  1. Congratulations ! What a fantastic growth of interest in the blog. It reflects the high quality and variety of the content, and the unique service provided.
    The only slight quibble is that the number of countries with reported readership somewhat exceeds the 202 sovereign states listed in Wikipedia. But wouldn’t ir be good if that global coverage could be tapped to monitor and send in reports on updates and changes to GE region by region, as Google still seem to be reluctant to issue comprehensive info.

  2. Congratulations for the impressive stats. And thanks for your hard work, your blog is really great!

  3. Congratulations on your great stats. I wish my site had that much traffic. You have a great site. Keep up the good work and Happy New Years!

  5. Fantastic figures … and so well deserved.
    May I be the first of those millions to thank you for your efforts and wish you even more success in 2008 :)

  6. Way to go Frank. I usually hit your page 5-10 times a day checking for updates.

  7. Very well deserved guys, you obviously put alot your hearts into this project. Almost 8 million pageloads is pretty incredible!
    I hope this isn’t too far off of present topic, but I found something weird on my display that I can’t explain. It’s flying over my house in Costa Rica at 9°56’59.40″N Latitude and 84° 7’52.83″W Longitude. I have no idea what it could be and it’s literally right on my house. I posted some pictures of it to my blog at http://cultureshock-survival.blogspot.com/
    Thanks for being such a good source of knowledge for this incredibly awesome tool!
