2016 Year in Review: 91,000+ views, 3 awards

Written by Faizan Patankar

As 2016 has passed, I decided to give a low down on how Career Geek got on in 2016. Bear in mind, I only came to running it (again) in August 2016.

In 2016 Career Geek had over 91,000 views (91,381) to be precise. That’s approx. 30,000 views less than 2015 (when I left Career Geek).

2016 was also the 5 year anniversary of Career Geek. Over the 5 year period, Career Geek has gathered ~ 650,000 views (this year we passed the 0.5 million mark in views).

It’s a bit disappointing to not reach 100,000 views in 2016. However that is slightly offset by being taking 3 awards in December 2016.

  • Feedspot awards Career Geek as one of the Top 100 Career Blogs (source)
  • Armstrong Recruitment Specialists lists Career Geek as one of The Best Career Blogs to Read in 2017 (source)
  • Career Naija awards Career Geek as one of the Top 100 Career Blogs For Amazing Advice (source)

That’s all for 2016. Hope you have a great year in 2017 and keep reading!
