2016 – our Blog statistics

2016 was a popular year for our church blog. We had a wide variety of posts and more visitors than ever.

Here are some of the statistics:

The blog was viewed 64,527 times in 2016. That is an average of 176 views each day.

42,164 different visitors came to our church blog during the year. This number would fill the Bridgewater Hall, Manchester 18 times.

Our blog posts on the blessing of homes are always popular, and sure enough 20 + C + M + B + 16 was the most popular post in 2016.  The silly season post on the Unusual names of the Anglo Catholic Clergy proved very popular (over 4,000 views) and our announcement of Alan Franks’ nomination to the post of bishop (on April 1st) also received much interest.

Most people find our church blog through Google, but Facebook and Twitter also refer a lot of viewers.

world-statsVisitors come from a wide variety of countries. The top six, in order of views are (United Kingdom, USA, Germany, Canada, Australia and Italy).  More unusual countries with over ten views in the year include; Belarus, Ukraine, Namibia and Latvia. In some cases we’ve had only one recorded view from a country – we’ll try to improve on that. Such countries include; Djibouti, the Palestinian territories, Cape Verde, San Marino and the Vatican.

 We’re very pleased St Chrysostom’s is well known through the blog, we encourage you to follow the blog – and we invite guest writers too for the blog – so why not consider writing something for us to consider – it would be guaranteed readership!
