ClusterMap, a Nice Free Geographic Web Widget

Locations of visitors to this page


Over the weekend I came across ClusterMaps so I decided to add it to my site on Monday. You can see the same map above in the sidebar on the right. I don't know how cool it is yet, but I'm giving it a try as something fun for the readers of this site to enjoy. Besides it's free as long as your site has less than 2,500 hits per day. This blog is getting close but it isn't over the limit yet. If you want to add this little widget to your site go to here. And they say gotos are bad. Okay, that was a bad joke.

Chris,

I have been using this service for a long time. The only drawback I find is that RSS readers through Google Reader cannot contribute to the count. Why? Google Reader does not run the script inside your page.

That's why I read your posts in Shanghai here and no node is marked on the map yet.

Lex,

That seems to be a general RSS problem until someone like FeedBurner shares the hits with third parties like Google Analytics and ClusterMap.
