On the flagcounter FAQ page, it says over 99% accuracy, I have had visits from Svarlbard at least 3 times & I know this because I have a friend I asked to visit, the same with Guernsey 2 times, also multiple visits from Timor-Leste, but these seem to show up as unknown asian/pacific region, can you explain why these flags are not registering?  now onto Bouvet Island, South Georgia & the Sandwich Islands, Heard Island & McDonald Islands & French Southern & Antarctic Lands, why are these flags even listed on a counter site when they can not be counted because of little or no population? shouldn't they be removed?

Re: questions

I posted here the official explanation for EU and AP flags.

It really comes down to who their ISP is and how they assign their users IP addresses.  Also the Internet is constantly growing and new IPs are assigned that were previously unused.  As such the databases that we use to identify origin are updated every single week.

We include all "countries" that have been assigned a ccTLD.

Re: questions

thanks, that does clear things up a bit, so of my list, Guernsey is the only one that could be registered?
