I'm curious as to how much of my traffic is US-based, and how much is international.

Is there a way I can check this?

Most servers come with either webalizer or awstats installed ..if they are not "switched on" ask your host to do this for your domain ..they will tell you ..

and you will not be giving "all" the traffic information to google as you would with Google analytics ..

Webalizer did quite a nifty job. Thanks.

A LOT more of my traffic is international than I thought. The majority of it is US-based, but it's not as big a majority as I thought it would be.

I tend to look at the client timezone setting for this.
That means it is limited to those clients running js, but it is representative as a proportion.

Keep in mind that the mappings from IP address to country are not always accurate.

You have to keep in mind that a lots of trafic comming from USA are bots.

More than 40% of my website traffic come from USA, but if i remove all robots and "non-human" visitors this drop to 3 or 4%
