vk.gy User Data: 2019 - 2020

A year ago, I wrote an article about what kinds of users we have a vk.gy, answering questions like "Where do we live?" and "What kinds of devices do we use?" Today I am here to answer these questions again, but for 2019 through 2020.

Number of Users

Compared to last year, we have over tripled the amount of users coming into the site. This is definitely the fruits of all of the hard work put into the social media efforts, interviews, Style Shock, and all of the editors who have been contributing in the ways they can. 🎉

Countries

After looking at the data last year, it became quickly apparent that more users come to this site from Japan than any other location. Let's see if that's still true:

Turns out, this is even more true than before. While traffic from the US increased by over 50%, traffic from Japan over quadrupled.

Here's a more accurate breakdown of Japanese and US traffic sources:

Sources

Sources is used to determine how people get to the site if they didn't type in the URL directly. This chart is a bit difficult to read since it's very dense, but basically, each color represents a different source and each peak represents the total number of hits for that day.

A significant amount of traffic comes from the results of Google searches, as well as Twitter (t.co links), and Yahoo.

Time of Visits

Like last year, based on an EST timezone, most users tend to visit between 8AM and 10 AM. #breakfastAndVkei

Devices

A lot of users visit the site on mobile, which is unsurprising in this day and age. Here's a breakdown of the kinds of devices they're visiting on:

And lastly, here are the pages that have had the most traffic in the past year.

Like last year, it seems like MATHILDA (マチルダ) gets a lot of traffic, but they were outdid this year by DIMLIM, gulu gulu, and -Shintenchikaibyaku Shuudan- ZIGZAG (-真天地開闢集団-ジグザグ).

From an editors perspective, editing the most popular pages is a daunting task because of the sheer volume of information required to do so. I hope that we (collectively) get going and actually do it. Some effort has been spent on X JAPAN's page, for instance, but yes - we really do need to improve overall.
