Local Inbound Marketing Question: Where in the World is the Internet?

Posted by Jaco Grobbelaar on Thu, Jan 02, 2014 @ 07:54 AM

local inbound marketing agency, Petaluma CADo you remember when I wrote to you that people on the internet don't really visit your website? That article There are No Such Things as Internet Marketing Visitors stated--SEO Logic in their blog post Web Traffic 101 says:

In a sense, there is no such thing as a site visitor. Instead of saying a person visits a site, it is correct to say that a person's user agent requests files which are retrieved from a website and rendered at the person's personal computer, thus creating the website traffic. The traffic is your site being sent to the person's computer after being invited by a user agent.

In a sense, your website is the visitor. Your website visits the people you have been thinking of as visitors.

But an even more intriguing question is where in the world is the internet? This mindboggling question was taken on by WhoISHostingTHis.com in an infographic that gives you the info on where it is.

But first, a word from our sponsors: In case you don't know what the internet is, here is a very technical explanation. The internet is a global system of interconnected computer networks that serves several billion users across various countries connected to each other. Yes, even if you are serving your local inbound internet marketing connections, you are a part of something much bigger.

As inconceivable as that technical explanation was, here's another one. The weight of the internet, minus servers and cables, is a mere 0.2 millionths of an ounce. That is equal to a grain of sand.

So where is the internet?
