If you’ve ever wondered where on Earth all the visitors to your site are coming from, this feature is for you!
…and check out the brand new “Views by Country” panel.
Now, you can see at a glance exactly which countries comprise your audience:
When you click on or hover over a country name, the map zooms in so you can really get a feel for all the parts of the planet your content has reached:
The Summaries page shows you country stats for the previous week, month, quarter and all time, but keep in mind this feature is new and views by country are not available prior to March 2012:
We are tremendously excited to be working on new features like this for your WordPress.com My Stats tab. Stay tuned for the next evolution!

This is a GREAT new feature!! I love it! I use my site in my elementary classroom and it is a great way to include geography! Thanks!!!
Mar 9th at 10:00 pm
Nice feature. I always wondered why WordPress didn’t have this functionality before. We can only check the map for the top posts? It would be nice to see the map for all posts.
Mar 9th at 10:08 pm
very well done.. kudos WP
Mar 9th at 10:12 pm
super like… how i wish our blog visitors can see it also
Mar 9th at 10:25 pm
Jeff, this feature is awesome! Thanks for telling us about it. I’m curious, does WP offer a “Flag” widget to represent visitors from other nations on the main page??? Let me know!

Wordpress always has something new and great to share. Now I know where visitors come from,love it~ I can’t believe someone from Canada viewed and from some part of Africa ^^. But mostly the USA
Mar 9th at 10:36 pm
That’s what I always wanted! Thanks!
Mar 9th at 10:37 pm
I love this feature! Thanks so much! I had a sneaking suspicion that my blog was read avidly by my friends and fmaily – this showed me that it was people from all over the world – amazing! And now I know who my audience is!
Mar 9th at 10:59 pm
Well done. Two suggestions for futther improvements. Add the “Unknown” category so that users can reconcile to the total views. Secondly, make the Top 10 or 20 or something available in a widget.
Mar 9th at 11:04 pm
Thanks for this feature. I appreciate the excellence of your work. The ease of use of the features and relevant feedback make this a great site from which to blog and learn.

Once again, my co-workers making me proud! Team Data FTW!
Mar 9th at 11:29 pm
Awesome! This is going to become my new obsession, I can just tell!
Mar 9th at 11:37 pm
Thanks. If wordpress could provide a trace of all the pages accessed by every visitor, I could delete the statcounter widgets I currently use.

I like this feature and pay way too much attention to it. It’s good though.
Mar 10th at 12:13 am
This is fantastic – I am genuinely interested where my readers come from, esp. by their comments I seem to have fired up a few Americans in my post ‘The Accountant in Liberia’ … & they weren’t even my words!! Yeek! But it’s good to speak, feel, move … as long as we do it intelligently. But anyway, I like this because I tried getting a flag thing they I see on some blogs but I was only able to post it to A SINGLE POST, couldn’t do the side bar thing. Was so annoying so what I’m saying is: LOVE THIS!
Mar 10th at 1:04 am
Thanks you from Spain!!!
I´m very happy for this. I need it for my magazine.
Mar 10th at 1:12 am
Thanks for the great feature! It’s nice to see that I got visitors from pretty much every country around the world except Greenland. Now I’m curious… Do you have WordPress available in Greenland?
Mar 10th at 1:29 am
WOW!!!!!! THANKS soooo much for adding this to WordPress!!!!! I have been wanting something like this ever since I moved over from Blogger to WPress. Again……I really appreciate this!!!
Mar 10th at 1:39 am
Wow!!! C’est super, j’adore!!! Vive WordPress
Mar 10th at 2:02 am
I love this new feature. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Mar 10th at 2:56 am
This is the best. Thank you so much WordPress for keeping on making great stuff! I don’t have to put a flag counter on my blog then. WEEHOO!
Mar 10th at 3:04 am
I’ve been waiting for something like this! Thanks WordPress ^.^ Keep up the good work!
Mar 10th at 3:04 am
I wish this feature available in WordPress.org platform.
Mar 10th at 3:14 am
WordPress just keeps getting COOLER AND COOLER!
Mar 10th at 4:01 am
LOVE the country zoom-in and flags! This will be even more awesome than that world map shower curtain that I used to stare at every time I was in the bathroom…
Mar 10th at 4:13 am
Yes, perfect. This application late in coming… but is finally here! Great job and Congratulations!
Mar 10th at 4:20 am
This is fantastic! I love this new feature. WordPress has just been exceptional as far as helping make my blog happy and easy! Thanks!

Totally cool! I love this new feature! Way to go WordPress.

Wow! This is the best enhancement yet!
Mar 10th at 4:46 am
Nice feature. I was surprised that so many people outside the United States were following local news on Hawaii Island. Russ Roberts, editor, http://prgnewshawaii.wordpress.com.
Mar 10th at 5:04 am
Evolution! Definitely a great and useful feature. Thank you so much WordPress.
Mar 10th at 5:29 am
It would be cool if we could zoom in on the UK and drill it down further into regions!
Mar 10th at 6:52 am
I love this new feature. It is nice seeing where in the world my visitors come from. Thanks
Mar 10th at 7:10 am
Yay! This is cool, it’s nice to see where the views are coming from.

Mar 10th at 9:03 am
Endlessly fascinating and just shows the amazing internationality of blogging!
Mar 10th at 10:09 am
Brillant. Great and much appreciated update !
Too bad that the datas don’t cover the whole period of the blog.
- Be able to know how many unique visitors came to see our blog.
- Be able to add Google analytics to a wp.com blog.
Mar 10th at 10:25 am
As always, I love the features you keep adding for us! I’m SO happy I chose WordPress to work with!!
Mar 10th at 10:38 am
Thanks from Milan (Italy)
Mar 10th at 11:05 am
I really love this new feature! Great work!
Mar 10th at 11:52 am
Great job. I was really surprised when I noticed that yesterday.
Constant improvements, congratulations.
Mar 10th at 12:42 pm
* Can we see how many views we got from each country on a particular day? (like in the summaries). Be interesting to see what different folk were into, and how much less slang I need to use.
* Is it possible for the UK to be sub-divided into counties?
Sorry if I’m being demanding, but it’s such a great resource!
Mar 10th at 12:49 pm
Awesome! I’d had a similar feature in Blogger a while back, and I’m thrilled it’s here now!
Mar 10th at 1:43 pm
I love this new feature! But why are you moving the stats page?
Mar 10th at 1:50 pm
This is just awesome
Mar 10th at 2:27 pm
guys and gals at WP, thanks a lot! it’s always good to know where the stalkers come from. : D
Mar 10th at 3:02 pm
This is brilliant, thanks.
Mar 10th at 3:02 pm
I noticed this yesterday; it is a great feature. Well done WordPress!
Mar 10th at 3:59 pm
This is a great program! Now businesses and casual bloggers know that the information that is being posted is viewed all over the world.
Mar 10th at 4:25 pm
most awaited feature till now for my blog’s stats… see it yesterday before this posting, great feature!
Mar 10th at 5:18 pm
This is a great feature, such a nice surprise to find on the Dashboard! Two suggestions, 1) Could you break out unique visitors for each country visit? and 2) Could you break out what tags and what posts visitors are looking at when they visit? Thanks again, looking forward to all the new Dashboard improvements.
Mar 10th at 6:20 pm
FFF – Fabulous, fabulous feature – what took you so long? Just joking – just joking – thanks for the great addition.
Mar 10th at 7:41 pm
Any chance this part of the stats can be moved down on the stats page? I find the referrers, search engine terms, and top posts and pages far more useful for day-to-day tracking and blog planning. Thanks!
Mar 10th at 9:18 pm
me encanta, love it, thank you
Mar 10th at 9:23 pm
Mar 11th at 12:43 am
Great feature! It’s good to actually see where your audience is from/who you’re targeting.
Mar 11th at 12:45 am
I got really excited when I first saw this. I thought it might be a Carmen Sandiego tracker.
Mar 11th at 1:23 am
This is great! I found it quite humbling and very gratifying to think that people as far afield as Chile and India (I’m from the UK) have read my blog. Wonderful that we share the same interests across the globe.
Mar 11th at 4:16 am
Thank you very much!
Mar 11th at 4:53 am
A stroke of genius, and a wonderful surprise too! I can see hours and hours of fun will be had by us all with this natty new addition. Thank you.
Mar 11th at 5:29 am
This is a great feature! I’ve been wanting to put a counter which where countries visit my blog everyday with a widget. Cool!
Mar 11th at 6:43 am
Found out that like Hasselhoff, I’m huge in Germany!
Nah, just kidding. Only 2 views total from Germany. But still, very cool feature. I feel so international.
Mar 11th at 6:59 am
I like this feature much, but it would be even better if there was a more detailed breakdown, like states within the U.S. and cities within the states themselves… Thank you!
Mar 11th at 9:55 am
Reblogged this on Elemental Magic and commented:
It was so amazing, signing into my BLOG and checking my stats; and finding a new feature.
Now you can see which countries the other bloggers that checked your blog are from.
A pretty new development I think. And I like it
Mar 11th at 11:08 am
I love this new feature! Thanks for doing such a brilliant job!
Mar 11th at 1:06 pm
Love this! It’s great to see an actual map of the world when looking at our stats! Well done! xo
Mar 11th at 1:41 pm
I love this! I have been hoping for something like it for a while now, you must have been reading my mind! I really wanted to know where people were reading from, locations are as important as comments at times, this will be so helpful. Thank you
Mar 11th at 1:48 pm
Awesome new stat, thanks very much for implementing it
Would it be possible in the future to show the number of unique visitors each day in addition to the total number of views? That would be pretty useful.
Mar 11th at 2:50 pm
This made me smile…love it.
Thank you so much
Mar 11th at 4:00 pm
Such an awesome feature – I love WordPress. Thank you for allowing average folks the opportunity to have extraordinary virtual lives!
Mar 11th at 5:47 pm
Thank you, WP! So cool, and provides yet another reason to obsess over daily blog stats. Wahoo!!!!!
Mar 11th at 7:33 pm
Great addition knowing from where we are connected and which country is the heaviest reader of posts to target…
Mar 11th at 8:01 pm
I really like the new stats page – except it doesn’t have the hourly stats widget running in the top bar. I really like the hourly stats feature which shows up on every other page – except the new stats page!
Please can somebody code it in.
Thanks and keep up the good work
Mar 11th at 8:50 pm
Keep up the good work!!!
Mar 11th at 9:11 pm
I was so excited when I saw this! Very cool!
Mar 11th at 10:57 pm
This is an awesome new feature! Two thumbs up, WordPress!
Mar 11th at 11:40 pm
Thank you WordPress! It’s a tremendous advantage to know where in the world I’m most popular.
Mar 12th at 2:39 am
I love it!
Thanks for never stopping to improve our experience with WordPress!
Mar 12th at 3:31 am
This feature is pretty cool.To know how far your posts reach, is pretty wicked.
Mar 12th at 3:57 am
Thanks for this. As a blogger in China, this helps me to see when we are being blocked by the Great Firewall, and when are posts are getting through.
Mar 12th at 4:47 am
Jeff, we do not know each other. I am one of your bloggers in WordPress. I rarely respond to any WordPress notes, but this one I cannot simply shrug my shoulder off. Thank you so much for having thought of this feature. It is very helpful. It gives me a better picture of the people who read the articles I write. Thank you and more power to all of you who work for WordPress. I am also grateful for WordPress for giving me the chance to share my articles to the rest of the world.
