Looking at the analytics for the LinkUp website – in particular, the blog entries – is something else I like to do at the end of each year. Discovering what entries resonate with our customers and website visitors really helps me get a glimpse into your thoughts, and understand what issues you may want to know more about.

So, in case you missed them, let me share the top three blog entries from last year, based on the number of viewers to each page:

You could have knocked me over with a feather when I realized that THE TOP THREE blogs from 2021 were actually pinned in 2020. Even more surprising? They were the exact same top three blogs from that year, only now in different order.

Number three: The C-band Transition: Here’s One Big Mistake You Won’t Want To Make

I wasn’t surprised at all that this blog entry was one of our top three. We have had countless conversations with industry leaders, influencers, clients, and techs from coast to coast about the C-band transition. The topic of discussion? How important it is for registered C-band uplink and downlink owners who chose the lump sum option to make efforts to protect their antennas from the encroachment of 5G filter, even if they do not have antennas located in the top 46 markets.

In fact, in preparation for this month’s newsletter I updated this blog and added a second point that bears a second look.

Holding the second spot in our top blog entries for the year is: Snow, Ice And Your Antenna: Essential Advice On Keeping Your Signal from Going Into Deep Freeze.

Initially, the popularity of this entry was a surprise last year; that it’s still has high analytics is amazing! But the more I thought about it, the more it fits as one of the more popular write-ups for both years.

If you experience tough winter weather in your neck of the woods, then of course you’re curious about what tools you have in the battle with accumulating snow and ice. You also learn that a broom CAN be your best friend.

And the number one blog entry – the one that keeps performing month after month, year after year – is, hands-down: The Truth About 5G Filters, And Why You Should Hold On To Your Wallet.

This blog entry was updated last month for two reasons. For one thing, the filters designed to mitigate 5G are currently on the market and available. Number Two? We continue to reassure those with downlinks not located in the top 46 markets that – while they should keep the scheduling of their 5G filters on their to-do list, they can put it on the back burner for a year or so.

So there you have it; the best of our blog entries for 2020 AND 2021! We’ll keep providing you pertinent info about content delivery each and every month, but — at this rate — I would be surprised if these three blog entries don’t continue to have a strong presence in 2022.

Please feel free to suggest to us any tech topics you may find helpful – not only to you but to other folks who are responsible for the delivery of content.

We’d love to have your input!
