Cites & Insights stats–quick note

Just did the stats for first-half-of-2010 readership of Cites & Insights issues and articles (where article pageviews only include HTML, issues only include downloads)–and updated overall spreadsheet for the, to date, 142 issues (including end-of-volume indexes) and 364 HTML articles (a lot fewer than there are actual articles, mostly because I didn’t start doing HTML until Volume 4 and still don’t do HTML for all articles), noting that the stats are woefully incomplete (there were none for the first few years).


More than 573,000 PDF downloads to date. Two issues downloaded more than 10,000 times; four more than 8,000; 17 more than 6,000; 44 more than 4,000. In all, 67 of the 142 issues have been downloaded more than 4,000 times to date.


More than 2.2 million HTML pageviews (of articles, excluding other pags) to date. Including both HTML pageviews and PDF downloads, three articles have been viewed more than 20,000 times; 21 more than 10,000; 63 more than 8,000; 100 more than 6,000; 85 more than 4,000. In all, 272 of the 364 articles have been viewed more than 4,000 times to date.

You already know the (by far) most frequently downloaded and viewed article, which still gets downloaded as an issue more than any other in 2010 (although it’s not the most downloaded article in 2010–That is, of course, Library 2.0 and “Library 2.0.” If I had a quarter for every download/view of that issue/article, it would cover two years’ sponsorship for C&I. Ah well…
