For our last blog of the year, I wanted to highlight our top blogs and share a few statistics.
Top New Blogs in 2020
Starting with a list of the most popular new blogs that we published in 2020.
The top three with > 2,000 views each and a total of 30,000 views for the list.
If you have not read one of these blogs or need a refresher, please click on one or more of the titles below.
13 of our top 20 blogs are on IBOR Transition and Risk Free Rates (e.g. SOFR, SONIA,…), highlighting the importance of IBOR transition to our readers.
Top Blogs in 2020
Next the blogs that we published in earlier years, ranked by their views in the year 2020. These evergreen blogs get views each day, mostly via Google search and have become prime reference articles on the topic.
The top four with > 5,000 views each, the next four with > 4,000 views, the rest with > 2,000 views each and a cumulative 95,000 views for these 25 blogs.
If you interested in one of these and have not already read or need a refresher, please click on the title below.
A cumulative 30,000 views for the top 4 and each with between 4 to 7 mins of average time on the page. The cumulative time spent on just these four is a staggering 2,800 hours!
Incredible, who would have thought that such topics would prove so popular and be so year after year.
