Top 10 articles and stats of 2009

One more year is over and with the new year we get the stats of the past year.

The website grew up a lot in the last year, actually it is four or five times bigger than last year… this is also why i’ve been doing some modifications to get a better database that works faster and can handle more people.
Some interesting facts i found out were:
– Firefox wins the browser battle with 51 % Internet explorer 24,85 % Safari 14,68% Chrome 5,43% Opera 1,70%
– Most people came from: Google, Twitter, Networked blogs, and Facebook and other blogs.

– The people who visit the blog speak mainly three languages… first english, second french, and then spanish… Actually the first country with the most visitors here is France, then we have US, UK, Spain, Canada and Brazil (out of 117 countries).

This leave me with a question, should i do a french version of this website? the french visitors are actually a lot (they are nearly as much as the english visitors)…and some agencies even asked me to publish contests for french people around. So, i’m kind of giving it a thought.

Anyway i decided to make a list of the most visited articles from last year on this blog and share them with you all.
