    Same procedure as every year. I did not forget you, guys:)
    So, today it's time to share our yearly traffic stats for xsimulator.net.

    The good news is that we still are growing but it seems that we've reached a level where the pageviews grown rate has reached a limit and become more flattened.

    In 2018 we nearly exceeded 3M pageviews with the exact number of 2.998.035 pageviews which is very impressive.

    Compared to the previous year we have we have a very good increase of users of 13.99% users with an increase of 10.51% of new users. The overall sessions increased by 12.41% but the pageviews only increased by 2.75% which is the lowest value of growing we've ever experienced before.

    We had a lot of pageviews January to April in 2018 compared to the rest of the year. So this looks like the main reason why the pageviews growth rate is so low compared to the previous year. It's also obvious that fewer pages per user session are read. The pages/session metric dropped by 8.59%

    This could be an indication that people find quicker and better what they are looking for because of better documentation and community support.

    It's still remarkable that we have such a dedicated community with strong and still growing user activity.

    This is just a small overview of the xsimulator traffic stats.
    If you are interested in other numbers or have ideas on how to make the community a better and more attractive place please let us know.

    I think you are right @RaceRay, more new users and more sessions but less pages and session duration/pages suggest people are finding stuff faster.
