Views by countries
The only way to really do it is off of apache log analysis, what I have is really pretty sketchy since 35+ percent of the traffic has not geolocation at all but I can give you some relative numbers. The problem is that we didn't start getting the current data till middle of November (when we moved servers) so the comparisons are limited.
Basically the site as a whole saw a 17 percent increase in traffic between Dec 2010 and Jan 2011, while visitors from Russia saw a 34 percent increase. So there does seem to be a good bump that is not explainable merely by general increases in traffic. This is not a statistical argument however.
February was only 28 days which makes analysis of that data even more problematic. Anyway, it is something I can try and monitor over time and give updates if you wish. Dynamically making that data available is not likely to happen though anytime soon but I can file it away as an interesting feature to look into.
Thank you for interesting information! Yes, I wish! If it is possible to do something in making available this data, I would like this. I think, that my activity can cause a great increase in popularity of this site among CIS. And it would be interesting to monitor it. Of course, statistics of views by countries per month would be the best. If this cause a lot of problem, statistics per quarters is also good.
