“Mongolia Today” in 2011

By Julian Dierkes

We started this blog in July 2011 based on the numerous conversations that Byambajav Dalaibuyan, Mendee Jargalsaikhan and I were having about Mongolia around the office at the Institute of Asian Research at UBC. It has been a great way to put some of those conversations down in pixels and to share them with readers.

And readers we’ve had… Over 1,200 unique visitors to the site have added up to over 5,000 page views. In the average over 3 min that people visit the blog, they read 2.3 pages on average. Not surprisingly, visitors from Canada and Mongolia are our most frequent readers. About a third of traffic comes from referrals which seems relatively high compared to other sites, while keywords seem to generate relatively less traffic.

Out five most-read posts have been:

  1. No stable anti-mining coalition
  2. Dalai Lama on surprise visit to Mongolia
  3. OT: In danger of becoming a hostage in domestic politics, again
  4. Presentation: How stable is Mongolian democracy?
  5. Bill Rafoss: Mongolia looks to change electoral system

Most-read category: Politics/Mining
