Commsrisk Top Ten for January 2019

There were some sharp peaks and troughs in Commsrisk traffic during January, with the number of weekend visitors falling below historic norms, which was offset by above-average traffic on Mondays. One possible explanation is that a growing share of the audience visits Commsrisk each weekday as part of their regular working routine, and this is supported by the observation that almost 80 percent of January visits came from users who had also visited Commsrisk the previous day. Put simply, Commsrisk has a hardcore audience of regular daily readers of a kind that other websites would dearly love to have, but will struggle to obtain because they present too wide a variety of content to maintain relevance within a niche. Many Commsrisk readers visit the site on a daily basis because they know what they want, and Commsrisk keeps giving it to them.

This is the rundown of the ten most popular Commsrisk articles of last month, as measured by unique pageviews.
