2015 MusicScribe Stats

2015 MusicScribe Stats

It’s been a few years since I’ve posted a stats report. In the past, the stats program I was using didn’t distinguish between MusicScribe.com and SGHistory.com. This year, I can give you the stats for MusicScribe alone.

MusicScribe was viewed approximately 190,000 times in 2015. The busiest day of the year was March 17th with 1,876 views.

We added more than 330 articles this year, which averages out to just a hair over 9 new articles every 10 days.

We had readers from more than 150 countries around the world in 2015.

The top outside site that sent readers our way in 2015 was sogoradio.com (AKA the website of Sirius/XM’s enLighten channel). Another key referring site was swainsmusings.com. Thank you for the links! Many of you find us via Facebook and Twitter as well.

The article that received the most views in 2015, oddly enough, is an Isaacs Biography that I posted ten years ago!

This MusicScribe “blog” site that you’re viewing now celebrated 11 years in September. You can still view articles all the way back to the day it was launched in September 2004 by selecting a month from the Archives link in the right sidebar.

The MusicScribe brand itself completed 16 years. Initially, “MusicScribe” was a music arranging business. Now, we just write (“scribe”) about music.

According to Alexa, MusicScribe.com currently ranks 383,703 on the list of websites based in the United States. Worldwide, we are at 2,639,918. Our sister website, SGHistory.com, is slightly more popular at 352,03 in the United States and 2,234,007 worldwide. (Please note that Alexa rankings are updated daily, so these numbers may vary slightly if you check for yourself.)

I’ll try to put these figures in perspective by listing a few other industry sites for comparison. gaither.com is quite possibly the most popular website with Southern Gospel connections on the planet with a rank of 62,282 in the US and an impressive 301,966 worldwide. singingnews.com is possibly the most popular site devoted to news with a 105,657 US ranking. SGNScoops.com draws a 179,906 US ranking, while absolutelygospel.com sits at 217,903. As the top concert event of the year, I thought the official National Quartet Convention would rank near those same numbers with 40,000 people attending and many checking out their website leading up to the event, but natqc.com actually sits at 945,676 in the US.

Finally, I checked two artist websites for further comparison. I didn’t expect individual artist sites to rank as highly as news sites, and that assumption appears to be correct. theisaacs.com has a 523,074 US rank. greatervisionmusic.com has a 1,051,783 US rank.

Keep reading! We look forward to what 2016 has to offer.
