Happy New Year 2020! To follow yearly tradition, I would like to share some statistics of SimplySfdc in 2019 -- here is the statistic for 2018.

In 2019, lesser blogs where written compare to 2018 (41% less), but the total Pageviews and total Sessions increase.

Similar to previous years, organic search always contributes to the largest portion of traffic source in 2019, and this year it crosses the 70% mark. Direct traffic, referral and social weaker in 2019.

There is no change in the top 6 countries of the visitors, however, US visitors gain almost 2% of the total number of visitors. All other countries contribute lesser visitors in terms of the percentage of visitors. The top six countries represent almost 79 % of the visitors.

From the cities' perspective, Chicago out of nowhere takes the 1st spot in 2019, while it was not in the top 10 in 2018, I guess probably this is related to intensive Einstein Analytics posts in 2019. New York climb to spot #4, and London drop to #6.  The top 6 cities represent almost 22% of the total visitors.

This statistic includes access from desktop and mobile. Total top 5 web browsers contribute more than 98% of the visitors. All browsers position stay the same as in 2018, but Internet Explorer gains a higher contribution percentage by visitors.

Top Visitor Web Browser 2019 2018 2017

4. Safari  2.91% 3.28% 5.32%
5. Edge 1.58% 1.71% 1.11%


In terms of the operating system, there is no change in the top 5 web browsers. There is a slight decrease in Windows users. While mobile and tablet users stay the same with close to 6% contribution of the total visitors, this makes sense because most of the visitors access this blog when they have difficulty in configuring Salesforce using the desktop/laptop.

Top Visitor Operating System 2019 2018 2017
1. Windows 74.19% 75.13% 73.36%

5. Linux 1.65% 1.36% 1.23%


As mentioned in last year's blog, screen resolution 1536x864 probably is 1920x1080 resolution with the display set to 125% zoom, and 1280x720 is 150% zoom of 1920x1080. In total, 1920x1080 is contributing to more than 42%. I have no idea with 1024x768, but some of the contributions probably are tablets and mobile.

Top Visitor Screen Resolution 2019 2018 2017
1. 1920x1080 24.38% 21.87% 20.87%
2. 1366x768 15.62% 20.09% 21.63%
