First of all, Happy 2013! We wish you and your loved ones all the best, personally and professionally.
2012 was an amazing year for us, we told you all about our news last December, but it’s always nice to welcome a new year though and we have many exciting plans for our business this year. This blog is our outlet to tell you all about the things we did wrong and the lesson we learned 🙂
I always like reading other bloggers’ yearly reviews, so I was looking forward to ours. These are the main data from the report (with a few comments from me in italics), you can find the full report here.
4,329 films were submitted to the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. This blog had 52,000 views in 2012. If each view were a film, this blog would power 12 Film Festivals.
In 2012, there were 93 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 131 posts.
The busiest day of the year was November 2nd with 528 views. The most popular post that day was CIOL-ITI 2011 Rates Survey.
The Rates Survey post was edited a few days after it was published and I had to delete most of its content. You can find lots of info regarding the survey in the two links provided at the end of that post.

How did they find this blog?
The top referring sites in 2011 were:
Some visitors came searching, mostly for welcome, welcome images, memes, translation, and famine.
I think it’s funny that the welcome mat image on my first post brought so much of the overall traffic, that was unexpected as well. Overall, the long list of search words I can see in the Stats looks good though, most of them have something to do with translation, so I guess we’re on the right track.
Where did they come from?
That’s 158 countries in all!
Most visitors came from The United States. The United Kingdom & Russia were not far behind.
