I just checked sitemeter for www.the-tap.blogspot.com as I often do, to find this.

Do you notice anything? My blog has sprouted a New Zealand address. Take this visitor record. They referred from beforeitsnews to read the post on Alex Jones from yesterday, visited 7 pages in total and read for about 25 minutes. If I key my blog with the .co.nz URL as in this record, it works exactly the same as if it was in the original .com version.
What exactly is going on? This is a bit weird! Will Google now not include New Zealand hits in my account totals? How many other versions of The Tap are sprouting around the globe. Has anyone seen this kind of thing anywhere else? Do I have guardian angel, or an interloper?
WINSTON comments –
I’ve seen that on a few blogs tap.
Dick Puddlecote’s was the last time I saw it I think.
It’s nothing ‘sinister’. Just googles new plan for sectioning countries so that they are able to block content in each country under the new censorship rules in that country rather than blocking things worldwide ( it does sound sinister actually lol)
If you log onto your site from NZ or wherever you will log onto the NZ sectioned tap blog. This means that NZ can block your blog while the rest of the world doesn’t. Google has offered this facility to countries with the end tag on each tap url now being country specific.
