Do you know who’s visiting your Web site? Traffic statistics have become the bragging rights for the new millennium, and comprehensive software allows you to discover pretty much everything that you could ever want to know about who’s been checking out your digital goods and what their habits are. This general information is helpful for tracking usage numbers and seeing which areas of your site are the most popular, but one of the best ways to get a feel for what type of appeal your site has is to find out where in the world your visitors are coming from. Whether you realize it or not, you have a global audience, and ClustrMaps will prove this not only to you, but also to your visitors.

This service provides you with a free HTML snippet that you can place in your page’s source code, and in turn, a graphical map of the world will appear and monitor all of the hits that are made to your Web site. Dots are used to show the location and intensity of the traffic, and it really is fascinating to watch the map get infected with chicken pox (red dots). Who knows, maybe you’ll find out that you’re hot stuff in Sri Lanka? Clicking on the map will zoom you in to a big world map, and for a small subscription fee you can zoom in to continents and receive a collection of other features. Hello, Uzbekistan!
