Today I decided to turn my attention to Eveonline.com. I was curious what the traffic flow would say about EVE Online. I found the results interesting to say the least. It could be that these numbers are skewed. However, they closely match what my site's traffic maps say and I'm fairly certain there's a correlation between EVE Players and those who read EVE blogs. *wink*
So, without further delay, here are the results I garnered.
Notice the bump in traffic with Incursion that lends credibility to these results (IMO.)
I was a bit surprised to find out that such a large percentage of traffic came from two countries.
Russia and the U.S. accounts for 42.2% of all traffic.
Should we consider Europe as one entity? All together they account for 21.8% (top 10 list, slightly more overall.)
Now we know why the Russians are such a tight knit group. They're all neighbors!
And no, they aren't all trolls (Wiki beats forums.) However, I doubt this result tracks links off the main site to sub-domains. It likely tracks only the impatient.
Using these numbers, what are some of the possible conclusions about the overall player base? Anyone care to make a guess?
