It’s Christmas time and the IAM blog is taking its annual winter break. We’ve had an exciting year with so much happening in various parts of the world to keep our team in London, Hong Kong and Washington DC busy. A quick look at our Google analytics stats shows that this year we have had 116,142 unique users, who between them visited us on 216,477 occasions. The average length of each visit was 1 minute and 30 seconds.
In terms of the countries from which we get most visitors, in order they are: (1) the US, (2) the UK, (3) Germany, (4) Canada, (5) India, (6) Japan, (7) the Netherlands, (8) South Korea, (9) France, (10) China. The cities where most of our readers are based are: (1) New York, (2) London, (3) San Francisco, (4) Washington DC, (5) Chicago, (6) Munich, (7) Los Angeles, (8) Ottawa, (9) Seoul, (10) Alexandria. All of which tells you that well over 50% of our readers are based in the US. Gratifyingly, though, we are seeing a lot more interest from both Asia and Europe. As the IP market develops and internationalises that trend will no doubt continue into the new year.
We posted hundreds of stories over the year, but the 20 most read were, in descending order:
We’ll be back on 4th January when we name the first of our IP personalities of 2015, with the second part following on 5th January.
Here’s wishing each and every one of our readers a very merry Christmas and a happy, successful New Year.
