Eclipses 3.2 Million Pageviews in 2015


2015 was another stellar year for The group has just finished up its year-end work, and we are thrilled to report that we will end 2015 with more than 3.2 million pageviews, an average of about 8,767 pageviews a day or 266,666 pageviews per month. This 2015 number is a 113% growth from 2014, when the site received about 1.5 million pageviews.

This year was a year of transitions. We have new leadership, we are in the middle of a new website design and our plans for 2016 are pretty lofty (some would say, “pretty insane”). Still, even with transitions and challenges, our group has always believed in being at the forefront of the Latino digital media space. In 2015, we achieved that.

We would like to thank all the outlets that linked to us or featured us, including The Huffington Post, NPRCNNNBC News, El PaísBuzzFeed, Mashable, MSNBCThe Boston Globe, MicVox, Mother JonesColorlinesThe Guardian, Truth Out, Daily KosSlateRemezcla, Daily MailSalon, Latina, Latino USA, Feministing, CosmopolitanFlamaMetro PR, Daily Caller, CBS San Francisco, Latin Times, Latin Post, Fox News Latino and Drudge.

We would also like to thank our 180+ contributors who continue to produce stories and commentary few in the Latino media space can match.

In closing, we wanted to take a moment and share some of the top posts of 2015. Together, these posts combined for about 60% of all our 2015 traffic, around 1.9 million pageviews. Not bad for a group that really has no staff, a few volunteer editors, a great collective of doers who believe in this site and very little budget. (SIDENOTE: The following list is quite telling, because if the Latino digital media space still believes a topic like Puerto Rico, for example, lacks interest or audience, think again.)

We are very aware that the English-language Latino digital space has gotten very crowded the past few years, as more and more sites see the early successes of pages like ours and try to quickly replicate that with more money and staff, so we truly want to THANK ALL OF YOU who are loyal to our site, what we have done for close to five years now and what we plan to do in 2016. Without you, we would just be in an echo chamber, and that’s just not as fun.

¡Gracias, familia!

Con cariño,

Los Rebeldes
