2017: By The Numbers

Minnesota Sunset, WinterFor fun, we thought we’d share some highlights from the year that has been on streets.mn.

Audience Facts:

  • We had more than 250,000 unique visitors to the site.
  • They read, on average, 2.38 pages.
  • We served up more than 1 million pages of content!
  • 35% of our visitors were between ages 25 and 34, with an additional 25% between 35 and 44.
  • 62% of our visitors came from Minnesota IP addresses.
  • 9% came from non-US addresses.


The top posts of 2017 for total traffic, across all posts of all time — not just the 2017 stuff:


  • We had an awesome summer picnic.
  • We had an incredible winter fundraiser, featuring Theater of Public Policy and some great special guests.
  • We co-hosted a mayoral forum on transportation equity in Minneapolis, did candidate surveys for both the Minneapolis and St. Paul mayoral races, and talked to a bunch of city council candidates.

We think it was a pretty good year, and hope you think the same. Hope to see you through 2018!

    I’m looking forward to reading, writing, and socializing with streets.mn more in 2018!

    Oh, and I’m still trying to solve my commuter conundrum. May be worth a follow-up post.
