2015 - Year In Review

Rebrickable has been running for four years now, with 2015 seeing plenty of growth.

The Stats

The below chart shows the daily page views for the last 4 years. This last week has seen a big surge in users which I hope continues into 2016!

Some stats for 2015:

  • 1 Million Visitors
  • 16 Million Page Views
  • Visitors are from: Europe (48%), Americas (33%), Asia (14%), Oceana (4%)
  • Or if you prefer countries: United States (26%), United Kingdom (8%), Germany (7%), France (5%), Netherlands (5%)
  • 25 000 New users registered
  • 1300 MOCs added

In 2015, about 35% of all traffic was from mobile devices (up from 30% in 2014). Rebrickable was never built with them in mind, so I will be looking at something for 2016 to make Rebrickable easier to use on mobiles/tablets. This will probably involve rewriting the entire site and may not actually finish in 2016 :)

New stuff

Some highlights of the new stuff that have been added in 2015:

  • Rebuilt Bricksafe to use modern web frameworks and improve it's functionality.
  • Plenty of new integration with BrickLink and BrickOwl, giving Rebrickable access to nearly all the stores out there to help you find the best bargain.
  • You can now Follow Designers and be notified when they have submitted new MOCs. Also a great way for designers to know how much they're loved :)
  • Started the Top MOC Competition - a new way for me to give away LEGO to the most liked MOCs submitted each month.
  • I released Rebrickable's first mobile app - The LEGO Shopper on Android which is doing pretty well. I will release an iOS version soon, and possibly a Windows version after that.

There were plenty more, but nothing I bothered to write about so I've forgotten :)
