Goodbye 2018!

As we say goodbye to yet another calendar year, we’re sharing our achievements for the past year.

Pageviews and visits

Throughout 2018, the DirTeam.com / ActiveDir.org Weblogs served five and a half million pages. To be exact: we saw 5,609,225 pageviews.

From a visitor point of view, this results in the following diagram:


Top blogs

When we round up all the pageviews, the following pie chart emerges:

Blogs 2018

The above pie chart doesn’t include roughly 1M pageviews, that served the index page and the main feed for the DirTeam.com/ActiveDir.org Weblogs. These, of course, all pointed to the content in the blogs themselves, so they are irrelevant to the pie chart.
