Blog statistics

The Integration and Implementation Insights (i2Insights) blog is progressing steadily. Statistics to the end of September 2018 are reported on this page for:

These statistics are updated quarterly, the next update (to end December 2018) is due in January 2019.

Blog posts

The figure below shows the number of new blog posts published each month (blue bars) and the number published in previous months (‘old’ posts; red line). From April 2017 the number of blog posts published each month was deliberately reduced compared with earlier months.


Contributors by country

As shown in the figure below, 240 authors from 30 countries have contributed blog posts, as lead or co-authors (each contributor is counted only once, even if they authored and/or co-authored more than one blog post).


Visitors and views per month

Monthly tallies of visitors and views are shown in the figures below. The first figure shows the number of visitors, along with views divided into home page views, new post views (published that month) and old post views (published in previous months). The second figure shows views adjusted by number of blog posts: home page views adjusted by number of new posts, new post views adjusted by number of new posts and old post views adjusted by number of old posts.



Distribution of blog post views

The figure below shows the distribution of “direct” views that blog posts have received via their unique URL. Eighteen blog posts have been viewed more than 1,000 times, with five viewed more than 2,000 times and one viewed almost 5,000 times. These figures are underestimates, as many blog posts are viewed via the home page rather than their unique URL. To end September 2018, 17% of views were via the home page.


Median number of blog post views

The median number of total direct views across all blog posts is shown in the following figure. In September 2018, the median number of total views was 468.


Views by country

Since the blog started there have been views from 196 countries (as defined by WordPress) or 172 of the 193 nations as defined by the UN. The darker the colour, the more views.
