Print Media Centr Visitors Pick The Best Posts Of 2015

Best of 2015-01Greeting Earthlings, CMYK Enthusiasts, and Print Media Centr Readers… Happy New Year! It’s a brand new year and no better time to look back and share some 2015 history with you. Here is a bit of statistical site info and some quick links for the top 10 posts on PMC in 2015!

PMC attracted readers from all over the planet with US, Great Britain, Netherlands, Canada and Germany, leading the pack.

Shout-out to new visitors from Swaziland, Liechtenstein, and Mozambique… thanks for stopping by! Other honorable mentions go to Kiribati, Marshall Islands and Lesotho for providing a geography lesson, and to a growing number of our peers and colleagues on the African continent who made PMC a regular stop in 2015.

42.3% of PMC visitors came through a Windows OS, 29.1% from Macintosh, 5.3% from iPhone or iPad, and balance other ways including SONY PlayStations. Shout-out to the 5,112 visitors who came through a Blackberry, and hope it worked out for you! That number is about half from 2014, so progress

Socially Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook respectively provided the most PMC referral traffic, however the RSS feed link for “Printing” on Guy Kawasaki’s All Top site topped the referral list – it pays to feed the aggregated content beast! My blog on Printing Impressions gets an honorable mention accompanied by a shout-out to PI for being an awesome industry resource. (Follow them @PIConnects)

Speaking of visitors, PMC had almost 2 million page views in 2015 with each visitor spending an average of 7 min and 20 secs on the site. January was our busiest month accounting for 343,480 of those views.
