Blog statistics

The Integration and Implementation Insights (i2Insights) blog is progressing steadily. Statistics to the end of December 2017 are reported on this page for:

Although we aim to update these statistics quarterly, work pressure means the next update will be for June 2018 and will occur in July 2018.

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, 189 authors from 27 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. Fifteen blog posts have been viewed more than 1,000 times, with three 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 December 2017, 18% 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 December 2017, the median number of total views was 396.


Views by country

Since the blog started there have been views from 191 countries (as defined by WordPress) or 172 of the 193 nations as defined by the UN. The darker the colour, the more views.
