The year 2015 is over and we have had a great time. To bring this blog’s first full year to a close we have analyzed all the 65 posts and created an overview of this blog’s most popular posts of 2015, divided by categories. Check it out below:
The infographics section has performed well this year. The infographic about the Australian economy has accumulated more than twice as many views as the second most viewed infographic, the summary of the German economy. Many infographics have been actively shared on social media (facebook, twitter, and reddit) which has contributed a lot to the high number of views. Check out the top 3 below:
Overall, the economics section has collected the most views. There are a few posts that have amassed a significant number of backlinks that drives organic search traffic to the site (e.g. Limitations of GDP as an Indicator of Welfare and Positive Externalities vs. Negative Externalities). The increasing number of search traffic results in a high number of views, even though most of those posts did not perform exceptionally well on social media. Here are the top 3:
The business section has only just started to grow. Therefore it has not accumulated a lot of views yet. At least one of the posts (i.e. How to Ruin Your Startup in 7 Simple Steps) has performed well on social media. Check out the top 3 below:
Update: Since we relaunched this blog in August 2016, we have discontinued the business section. With Principles of Economics And Business we were trying to connect and combine different economic sciences. However, we felt that we can add more value by focusing exclusively on economics now with Quickonomics.
As expected, the glossary posts did not account for many views in total. Their primary purpose is, to support readers in understanding difficult words from other posts. Below you can find the top 3 from this section:
In a Nutshell
In total we have counted 38’234 views on 65 posts up to this point. Thank you very much for all the support and positive feedback. We wish you all a happy new year and see you in 2016.
