It’s been an exciting year for Baha’i Blog, as we’ve had over 60,000 visits from 191 different countries (out of 195 in the world) so that’s pretty AWESOME!
The top countries were mostly the English speaking ones (this blog is in English after all!) but places like Malaysia, Germany and Romania were in the top 20!
Some 16,000 visits came from Google with people searching for things like “bahai test and difficulties”, “2011 baha’i conference”, “bahai jewelry” and “baha’i music”.
Our biggest source of traffic however was our Facebook page, which makes sense since we have almost 1,800 followers there now! Twitter also sent a couple thousand visits, and blogs like bahaithought.com and designthefaith.com also sent over some small doses of traffic.
Over 600 people stopped in to read our page on “What is the Baha’i Faith“. Over 5000 visited the directory and calendar facilities, where we’ve added 110 items to our Resource Directory and 28 events to our Calendar of Events, and our mailing list reaches over 430 people so far, so sign on if you want to be notified of our new posts.
We posted over 100 posts over the year which is about one every three days, and these posts have gathered over 700 comments from our growing Baha’i Blog community – so thank you to you all who participated in making the place a little more lively!
As you know, our posts cover a wide variety of topics relating to the Baha’i Faith, and we’ve had 20 different authors contribute, which is fantastic as we’ve always aimed to have a diversity of voices here on the blog. We’d love more so if you’re interested in writing a guest post, you can find out how here.
Here are the 10 most popular posts of the year:
