What Were Our Most Successful Articles in 2015?

At the end of each we anxiously look to see what were the 10 most visited blog articles on our website. We had thousands of visitors read hundreds of articles this past year. Our team infuses huge amounts of expertise, insights and hours into each article, so it's very rewarding to see visitors' consuming our content.

Of course, certain articles have an advantage. Some articles are promoted via our newsletter. Some rise higher in search results than others. Some have social media ad spend behind them. But, at the end of the day, it's still interesting to see what content visitors read, share, and engage with most. 

Full disclosure: for this list we highlight the biggest articles not dedicated to internal announcements. For instance, we are excluding an article announcing that the former journalist Joe Lawler joined our team (an article that technically would rank #7 on this list). Sorry Joe ...but congrats on being featured in our #1 team announcement Email this year!

Without further ado, here are the results:
