They Love Me in Russia!

Much like the way the French loved Jerry Lewis, it seems the country formerly known as the Union of Soviet Socialist Republic also loves me.  Side note here; these folks could take a lesson in name brevity from Prince.  Verbose naming aside, I must say that I am tickled by this sudden interest in my blog. Na zdorov'ye comrades!

But why?  Let's examine the evidence.  

  • Admittedly, I am something of a vodka hoarder/consumer.  My freezer currently holds five bottles of the stuff, none of it however is from the Russian Federation. 
  •  I am not a hand-crafter of balalaikas, borscht, blini or any other product that begins with the letter B. 
  • Caviar makes me skeeve so hard that I might start speaking Russian spontaneously.  If you despise a prized foodstuff of any country, it is generally not a popularity winner.  My hatred for the Balut Egg is clearly behind my limited readership in Southeast Asia. Duh.
  • I have no Russian bloodline but my children do, by way of my mother in law.  However, that bloodline is so diluted by an abundance of Sicilian that even the mainland Italians don't like us. I can't see their 1/8th heritage being a big winner.

So why the sudden jump in my Russian readership? The answer to these questions is often found deep in the belly of the Blogger Analytics tool.  

According to the Blogger Analytics tool, Russia appears to be kicking the USA's ass in readership.

Interestingly enough, Google Analytics does not agree with this statistic over the same time period. Zero readers from Russia.

The answer to the question has only become more murky upon investigation.  There is only one solution to this riddle and that is to ignore it and try to figure out why someone was referred to my site by an Indian Fetish Porn site.  More vodka! This may take a while.

6 Your comments, banter and witty repartee:

Welcome to the club. We all have this going just have to quit looking at the stats...and whatever you do...DO NOT CLICK on the referrer sites! It just makes it worse.

Lin - I am on to obsessing about other things. Have you ever noticed how many dimples are in a wine cork?

HaHa! Yes, me too and China seems very fond of my MOTPG blog. Searching for my secret plan of world domination thru super powered genes for contrariness in my descendants.

I came here looking for Tandoori flavored foot licking, but stayed for the brilliantly witty banter!!!

Hey Mrs G, we should take our show on the road. There are entire continents that we can conquer.

Mr Barry - Hey boo. I figured you had something to do with that stat. I assume that you are also behind the naked, crying clown websites that are referring traffic.

Sorry, I only access Scantidly Clad Crying Clown sites. I need to maintain some mystery in my clown porn. I draw the line at rainbow pubes.
