Google Earth Blog – 8 Million page views in 2006

Happy 2007 everyone! I’ve just reviewed the 2006 year-end statistics for Google Earth Blog (GEB), and it was an amazing year. GEB had 7,977,793 page loads on the web site (this does not include RSS readers which amounted to over 3 million requests in 2006). There were also 3,744,498 unique visitors to the web site. I’m happy to report that my readership is very international with approximately 60% of traffic from non-US locations. Special thanks to Google Adsense for helping make it possible for me to dedicate the time to write this blog. Also, thanks to the many sponsors through Google Adsense, Amazon, and a few direct sponsors on GEB. The biggest thanks to the Google Earth team for a great program and to the MANY GEB readers!
