Web site demographics (traffic origin)

Hi, according our site statistics most of our users access english-test.net from the following countries:

  • United States
  • Australia
  • EU
  • India
  • Great Britain
  • Canada
  • Germany
  • Iran
  • Thailand
  • China

How do you interpret this list? I mean, apparently a lot of students or professionals who have gone to the United States are looking for free ESL resources online and have come come upon our site. That’s why the United States is the number one country on the list. But why is Australia number 2? It has been in the second position for more than two years now and the ‘traffic’ (as it’s called in Internet speak) from there is unproportionally huge in comparision to the population of Australia. Maybe that is because a lot of foreign students prefer studying in Australia?[YSaerTTEW443543]

Hi Torsten

One thing that comes to my mind is that some of the traffic is probably from native speakers who are simply looking for info regarding SAT, GRE, etc. tests. In other words, not necessarily looking for information about ESL tests. For example, if you do a Google search with the words “GRE preparation”, then english-test.net comes up on the first page of the search results. So, native speakers could click on this search result and not realize that your website is for ESL until after visiting the site.

Just a theory…
