Readership up by a quarter

The readership of Analyst Equity rose by a quarter this year, with the number of unique visitors up from 22,000 in 2006 to 27,500 so far this year.

Growth was especially sharp in the first half of the year, and hit a new high.

What’s interesting is that some of our best-read articles this year have been ‘classics’ from earlier years, such as:

It’s especially interesting to see what domains visitors to the site come from. The 25 domains from which the most visits come include those associated with leading vendors, analyst houses, and one of our competitors. Near the top of the list, just above, is a domain being used only to investigate IP addresses (if you have a hypothesis about that, do let us know).

Considering the growing number of sources of opinion about analyst relations, the strong growth in our readership is much appreciated. It’s deeply satisfying to know that this blog continues to win the interest of a growing number of new and old readers.
