The Integration and Implementation Insights (I2Insights) blog is growing steadily. Statistics to the end of September 2017 are reported on this page for:
- number of blog posts per month
- number of contributors by country
- number of visitors and views per month
- distribution of blog posts views
- median number of blog post views
- number of views by country.
These will be updated quarterly (next update due in January 2018).
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.
As shown in the figure below, 178 authors from 24 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).
Monthly tallies of visitors and views are shown in the figures below. The first figure shows the number of visitors, and views divided by 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.
The figure below shows the distribution of “direct” views that blog posts have received via their unique URL. Twelve blog posts have been viewed more than 1,000 times, with two viewed more than 2,000 times. These figures are underestimates, as many blog posts are viewed via the home page rather than their unique URL. To end September 2017, 14% of views were via the home page.
The median number of total direct views across all blog posts is shown in the following figure. In September 2017, the median number of total views was 374.
Since the blog started there have been views from 190 countries (countries as defined by WordPress). The darker the colour, the more views.
These statistics are drawn from those provided by WordPress, and should be seen as indicative only, given the limitations inherent in gathering such data.
