I have been analyzing TVNI Google Analytics data for our two key Internet sites. Comparing the past 12 months (2010/11) with the 12 months (2006/2007) representing the period between ICV4 (Venezuela) and ICV5 (India) we see an increase in visits viewed by 173% for the TVNI website, and for the last 12 months year - 79% for the TVNI Blog (2010/2011). Attached is a list of 200 countries showing from high to low the access of our website page. The US remains at the top, but it is interesting to see the near leaders: US (+113% change), India (+293%), Philippines (+560%), Brazil (+188%), Australia (+187%), South Africa (+573%), UK (148%), Nigeria (+1619%), Italy (136%), Germany (109%) Indonesia (169%), Thailand (61%), Ghana (816%), Ethiopia (237%).
There is still a long way to go but it is encouraging to see the increased interest. One should note the increase in India, Brazil, and the Philippines. We should also note that many small tropical countries (generally very poor), and that need Vetiver, have very little internet access (or interest?) at all. Although they might be currently served by NGOs from countries in the US, UK and Germany. Haiti data is a good example. You can draw your own assessment and conclusions.
This should be used as a guide, and should be shared with people who might be interested.
