Out of curiosity, how many views does the average post get? What about the 90th-percentile post?
Before I look anything up, what do you mean by “the average post”? The Forum used to be much less popular than it is now, with posts getting much less attention. Maybe something like “how many views did the average post from 2020 get in 2020?” And ditto for 90th-percentile posts?
I’d be interested in the total number of pageviews and unique pageviews per year for the whole forum, plus yearly growth (unless there already is a post with that info).
Rather than chasing down a bunch of stats to put into a comment, the best step for us seems to be putting up a “statistics” page that we occasionally update. I’m planning to add something like this in the next ~2 months.
Sounds great, and like the right call.
Good question. Yeah, how about views of the average post from 2020 in 2020? And ditto for 90th percentile.
Some rough estimates based on a bit of Analytics work (emphasis on “rough”):
I’d say that the median 2020 post probably had ~100 views, and the average post ~250 views
The 90th-percentile 2020 post probably had ~700 views
