Print Media Centr Best of 2016

Greeting Citizens of The Printerverse, CMYK Enthusiasts, and Print Media Centr Readers… Happy almost New Year! No better time to look back and share some annual history with you. Here is a bit of statistical site info and some quick links for the Top 10 posts on PMC in 2016!

PMC attracted readers from all over the planet with US, United Kingdom, Canada, India and Australia leading the pack.

Shout-out to new visitors from Seychelles, Suriname, and Macau… thanks for stopping by! Other honorable mentions go to a growing number of our peers and colleagues in the Caribbean and on the African continent who made PMC a regular stop in 2016.

66% of PMC visitors came through on desktop, 30% from mobile, and 4% from identified tablet. At least 69 of you are still using a Blackberry, and a few weird devices showed up this year such as: Spice M6800 Flo, OnePlus ONE A2003 2, and Elephant P3000S. By far Samsung is the mobile phone of choice in the Printerverse, as long as you are allowed to turn it on!

Socially Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook respectively provided the most PMC referral traffic, however a new channel popped up in fourth place this year… Thank you REDDIT! and Pinterest moved to fifth.

My blog on Printing Impressions and parent site PIWorld.com gets an honorable referral traffic mention accompanied by a GINORMOUS shout-out to PI for being an awesome industry resource and PMC partner. (Follow them @PIConnects, subscribe to their daily email for industry news, and to subscribe to Printing Impressions Magazine – it’s FREE!!

Last but far from least — Shout-out to the Printerverse for sharing our content through your sites and social channels! We have had an explosion of community support this year. It’s apparent that more of you are using social media and content to grow your audience and generate traffic to your sites. Thanks for finding PMC share-worthy!
