We had a great June on Opensource.com bringing in 373,457 page views and 206,314 unique visits. We focused more of our content on resources that our readers can reference anytime for valuable information in open source, publishing the 2014 Annual Reading List, which included 12 book reviews and a week-long Twitter contest, and Top 3 open source business intelligence and reporting tools, researched and written by one of our Community Moderators.

Rankings

Open Science Week coverage ran from June 9 - 20. We published 19 total articles and had 11 new authors contribute their work. Nine articles had more than 1,000 page views and two articles had more than 2,000 page views.

Covering OpenStack, we published 13 articles and began a weekly OpenStack news roundup as well as a monthly tutorials roundup. Search rankings are improving, and we currently have a Google page rank of 5 for 'OpenStack' and 2 for 'what is OpenStack'.

Our "What is open source?" page maintained the #1 position in search results and generated 13,069 page views.

For the sixth month in a row, the top article was Top 5 open source project management tools in 2014, written by one of our community moderators. It continues to get steady search traffic and was the most visited page on the site with more than 40,000 page views.
