Some geographical data although it isn't that reliable (especially given the use of proxy servers):

US = 55%
EU = 8.9%
Australia = 6.5%
Singapore = 6.0%
Hong Kong = 5.0%
China = 3.3%

Alternatively a time zone share study via Sitemeter says about 35% are from Asia Pacific, 15% from Europe and 48% from the Americas.

Hmmm, I know you said that the geograpihical data isn't that reliable but only 3.3% from China? I find that figure stunning as I'm in China and via regular reading of pekingduck, I know that many others in China read simonworld.

I've just returned to China but I remember reading simonworld a few years ago (pre-Daily Linklets of course---BTW that was quite a brainwave you had there although it must take up a bit of time to search for the best links each day I imagine) when you had only a couple of hundred visitors each day.

Now it's 1,700+. COngratualtions mate, all well deserved via hard graft I'm sure.

Still, it's good to see that you've now become a bit of a leading China pundit these days and I notice you're now the Winds Of Change China boy. Onwards and Upwards!

I'm one of the 965 that added you to their Firefox Bookmarks this month. I'm just wondering how on earth you know if someone added you to their bookmarks/favourites?

Thanks very much, Joe. I get the numbers from my hosting package.

You're right on geography - it depends where the server is based, so any users of proxy servers will show up as USA. That's why I put the timezone share up as well, as it likely gives a better feel for where readers are.
