Visitors to EdinPhoto Web Site

Thank you for visiting the EdinPhoto site.  There certainly seems to have been a lot of interest in the old photos and recollections of Edinburgh.

I created the EdinPhoto web site in 2001 and have updated it almost every day since then.  Since 2005, the site has received an average of  14,000 visitors per day from around the world.

It has been visited by 242 of the 247 countries that currently have access to the Internet.  i.e. all countries except Antarctica, Comoros, Galapagos Islands, Mayotte and Western Sahara.  so, if you are in one of these five countries, it would be good to hear from you!

Here are results for a typical day in 2011.  10,094 people in 99 countries visited the EdinPhoto web site.  These are the countries that they came from.
