IMIA News – 2013 in review
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.
In 2013, the IMIA News site provided 139 new posts, so now has an archive of 765 news items.
The busiest single day of the year for traffic was October 24th; the most popular post that day was The Pioneer of Health Informatics in Saudi Arabia Moves On.
Among the posts and pages with the most views in 2013 were:
1. Medical Informatics Journals: 2010 Impact Factors (written July 2011)
2. eHealth Week 2013 (World of Health IT) – Dublin, Ireland: 13-15 May (written January 2013)
3. 4th Middle East Conference on Healthcare Informatics: Dubai, UAE – 22-24 April, 2013 (written December 2012)
This demonstrates the longevity and continuing interest in, and relevance of, some of the items we have produced.
The top referring sites in 2013 (after search engines) were (once again) twitter.com, facebook.com and the IMIA website – and the WHO website (who.int) was also ranked highly. Among search strings that resulted in people visiting the site were “applied clinical informatics, “tiger initiative”, and (again – interestingly, for an event that does not exist) “mie 2013”.
Most visitors came from the USA (by far the largest number), with Canada second, and Japan now third, above the UK close behind, and followed by Australia, and India. In Europe, most visitors were from the UK, Germany, Spain and Sweden; in the Asia-Pacific area from Japan, Australia, India, Singapore; in Africa from South Africa, Nigeria and Kenya; in Latin America from Brazil, Argentina and Mexico; and in the Middle East region, Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates.
