Blog RUVDS on Habré: three years

    From the very beginning of the year we had some kind of tactic and we followed it. As a result - right now we are in the first place in the rating of companies, and from no less pleasant - TM presented us with an award for second place in the nomination “The Best Corporate Blog in Habré”. Under the cut, we will tell you how it happened, and also treat you with PDFs of all translation cycles in our blog.



    2018 for RUVDS in a couple of paragraphs:

    All further calculations are based on the analysis of the XLS-file with information about all blog posts, which can be exported to the control panels of the corporate blog - thanks to Habr for this opportunity.

    Blog on Habré


    This post is the 500th in our blog on Habré :) We are keeping it for the third year, so we wind it back a little.

    2016: 72 publications were published in the blog , of which 58 (80%) were with a positive rating and 14 (20%) with a negative rating .

    2017: 170 publications were published in the blog , of which only one was negative (0.58%).

    2018: this year we freaked out and published 260 publications, of which 260 were positively rated . Aaaa !!! As far as we know, there are no more active companies on Habré.

    But maybe this is our ceiling. No, in theory we could have been more, but for understanding, in 2018 there were 247 working days, which means we did publications a little more often than every working day. If we come to the plan in 2 publications per day, then our blog will start you dreaming :) But in general it is even nice that we kept this pace - it feels like setting a goal to go to the gym every day and never walk.

    As for the posts. Sometimes (albeit rarely) we find comments about, say, “ ha, yes, they only do translations there, about web development — it’s not at all clear how sideways they are". Well, yes, translations, so what? Site rules allow it. Doing authoring publications on a hosting every day is rather impossible. Why are there every day - once a week, not every giant company will pull. And it would be much more resource-intensive, and the use of the service "Blog on Habré" is not so effective. Therefore, all of last year we “groped” the interests of the audience, studied the activity of readers and realized that our main target audience was the developers, for whom they decided to prepare interesting materials. We try to choose the freshest and most interesting, without water and advertising: just like a year ago, at the end of each publication we insert our little promo cod with Habraskidka - this is just as inconspicuous as a tag on clothes. Anyway, we like what we do,

    Returning to the numbers

    Of the 260 publications, there was not one with a negative rating or hidden in the drafts. A total of 8,639 votes were cast for them (7,580 pros and 1,059 minuses), the total rating of posts was 6,521, that is, the average rating of a post is +25.

    If we talk about business, then, damn it, these are steep numbers - we simply do not know of another such platform, where similar indicators are possible for more than reasonable money.

    Our blog's rating: last year we were not only on the 1st place in the rating of companies, but we never broke the 1000 level of the rating. This year it turned out :) Right now we are in the first place, and we are attacked by giants in which there are numerous authors.



    The themes of our blog are in many ways similar to those of the previous year:



    These are one of the most popular topics on Habré, although from the annual report on Toaster you can see that these same topics are the most in demand there.

    PDFs!


    Friends, I almost forgot the most important thing! Often we translate entire cycles of articles, after which we merge all translations into one big document. It is most convenient for us to give it in PDF-format, but if you need some other format - we are ready to provide the source of the document.

    At the moment we already have three large PDF documents:

    PDF version of the manual for Bash scripts / 150 pages, 5 MB
    PDF version of the manual for Node.js / 120 pages, 1.8 MB
    PDF version of the JavaScript manual / 103 pages, 2 MB



    It is not yet very clear how in 2019 we will jump over the bar with our own hands, but there is a desire. We will be extremely grateful if you tell in the comments what you (do not) like in our blog, what topics would be interesting to read, and in general any constructive.

    If you like what we do ...   oh, we almost asked to put a plus on this post, but remembered that this is prohibited by the Habr rules ... then we want to celebrate the new year well and achieve our goals in the new year!
