It’s that time of year where you look back and see how things went. So without further ado, here’s how Broadsheet.ie did in the last year.
The Big Numbers
Year-on-year there has been:
- 110% increase in visits to just under 12.5 million
- 95% increase in unique visitors to a smidgin over 3 million
- 127% increase in pageviews to 29.1 million
Where Are Your People From?
The lion’s share of visits (72%) were from Ireland as you’d expect. After that it drops off very quickly with the UK (10%), USA (5%), Australia (1%) and Germany (1%) rounding out the top 5.
Within Ireland, Dublin accounts for 57% of traffic and Cork 3% so we can be excused for a slight bias towards the capital.
Mucky Minds All Round
It will come as no surprise that the top three posts of the year were all mucky and not safe for work (even possibly life).
- Meanwhile, At The Smithfield Horse Fair
- Rosanna Davison’s Playboy Cover (NSFW)
- Poznan: Thanks For The Mammaries (NSFW)
How They’re Finding Us
Apart from the usual crowd that put in some form of ‘Broadsheet’ as the search term, the top five search terms just re-enforces the idea that the readers have dirty minds with Rosanna Davison appearing twice.
- rosanna davison
- niamh horan
- rosanna davison playboy
- katie taylor
- mario balotelli
Mario appears there because whenever he does something mad on the pitch or the news, people find the ‘Mario Balotelli: What A Legend‘ post.
The Window You Look At The Internet Through
Chrome dominates with 33% of users (up 7%), with the increase taking a chunk out of Firefox (21%) and Internet Explorer (17%).
Microsoft is slowly losing the OS battle with it slipping 4% to 61% of traffic while OS X (20%) and Linux (1.1%) both changed by under .5% each
About 16% of traffic comes from mobile devices and iOS is the big winner there accounting for 11%.
Have an Appy New Year
The much neglected iPhone App had 9,249 downloads last year. For something that was thrown together over a couple of days Christmas two years ago, it does okay for itself.
An update is in the works at the moment which has some interesting things in it.
That’s all for now – there’ll be the usual Broadsheet birthday post later in July with more stat porn.
