Perl Weekly readers and Perl Maven visitors by country

If you ever wondered in which places are Perl developers more active, here is a little piece of the information slice.

On the Perl Maven site there were 92.322 visits between 1 January and 20 March 2013. Most people were interested in the Perl Tutorial and the pages linked from it. 38% of the visitors arrived from the USA, 11.7% from India and 5.46% from the UK.

On the other hand I am using Bitly to track the clicks on the articles in the Perl Weekly newsletter. They let me see the statistics only for 30 days, but I think this is fairly representative to the previous weeks: There were 10.820 clicks (4 issues of the Perl weekly) 36% in the USA, 7.55% in the UK and ... only 1.60% in India.

Let's see the pies:
