For calendar year 2016, there were 187 unique countries that visited® website, up from 162 countries in 2015, 151 countries in 2014 and 112 countries in 2013.

All of our own web traffic continues to be organic, meaning we don’t pay search engines or other parties to entice people to come visit the site. Since we are a non-profit org, and offering our content for free, we’re not overly concerned about paid traffic. We would like to think that if we can create interest and value for the readers, then the traffic will come.

An analysis of our web-traffic found that there was some unidentified traffic (listed as “unknown”). Web-traffic is identified by unique IP addresses. It is possible those “unknown” countries are very tiny, such as island nations.
