Roswell Fans Around the World
Last year my web host put out a tool that allows me to see countries and cities of where people are in the world when they are looking at roswelloracle.com.
So I can tell that it is not just one rabid fan in each state or country, but a lot of different fans in different cities.
I thought it was pretty cool and I've kept a list of the places around the world.
Here are the top 5 U.S. states -
1. CA - California accounts for almost 9% of the views to the site
2. TX - Texas has almost as many views as California
3. UT - Utah just barely edges out NY and Florida
Most surprising insights -
I've seen hits from the actual Roswell, New Mexico! Is that you Max? Liz? Alex?
- Apparently Santa or Mrs. Claus is a Roswell fan because I've had hits from North Pole, Alaska. :)
And here are the top 5 countries -
1. UK - The UK has almost as many views as California at 7.5%
2. Canada - Canada is not too far behind the UK
Most surprising insights -
- I seen hits from Uppsala, Sweden, where Alex supposed went on his study abroad. Is that you Leanna? Or maybe his non-existent host family the Olsons?
I am continually surprised to see access from places like China and the middle east, who are not so keen on western ideals.
Sure it could be westerners who are living in those places that are looking at the site, or maybe they stumbled on the site accidentally. :)
Below I've posted a list of US states, Canadian provinces and countries around the world where fans have accessed the site.
I started to make maps just for myself to see how many places have Roswell fans, and I've included those as well.
The countries with Roswell fans are in color and have an alien on them. Countries that I haven't seen visitors from are in gray.
I will update the country/state lists every week or so, but I may only get the maps updated once every couple of months. So if you see a discrepancy, that is why.
These were posted from a 2013 map, so it is possible country boundaries or names may have changed.
***If you are from a country or state I've missed, let me know! I'll get you added.***
