Mint: Languages

Since installing Mint, I’ve enjoyed pouring over all kinds of referrer data, without having to sort through spam bots.

One of my favorite bits of visitor information, (seeing as how I work in the Localization industry), is the language of my readers. Using Marc Garrett’s Parsel Pepper (plug-in), I see that my visitors are overwhelmingly English-speaking.

No real surprise there, but guess what the #2 language is? Believe it or not, it’s Chinese. I have twice as many visitors from China and Taiwan than from either France, Germany, Spain or Japan… (where are my Nordic readers?)

Even more surprising, when I separate out PRC vs. Taiwan, 75% of my Chinese visits are from the mainland. I know there is a huge population advantage there, but I still find that fascinating.
