I am using Piwik for several years now, and I noticed that the country Piwik is listing does not correlate to the IP address it is registered in.
For example, someone visited a page with IP: 188.207.121.*
Piwik is showing a German flag for this visitor.
However, the IP address is given out in the Netherlands, according to RIPE.
inetnum 18.104.22.168 - 22.214.171.124
descr KPN Mobile The Netherlands B.V.
descr Mobiel.NET/Internet Everywhere
This is just one example of many.
It happens with multiple country’s/continents: like Australia, Brazil, USA,
My question is: on which information is the country listing based?
At this moment Piwik shows information that more than 22% of the visitors isn’t sourced from the Netherlands.
While I expected that only 5% of the visitors or somewhat should be sourced from foreign country’s
PS: I always keep the Piwik updated.
Thanks in advance.
