ProSoundWeb presents at least two feature articles every day of the working week, meaning that there are 40-plus long-form articles highlighted each and every month.
That’s a lot. In fact, so much so that we got to thinking that it would be handy to present a round-up of the most-read articles for those who might have missed at least some of them the first time around.
What follows is the top 5 most-read articles on PSW for the month of December 2015. Note that since the articles aren’t all posted at the same time, we apply the same timeframe (length of time) for each when measuring total readership.
Also note that immediately following the top 5, PSW editor Keith Clark offers some additional suggestions of recently published articles worth checking out. These articles also scored quite well in terms of readership but were just outside the head of the list.
Without further adieu, here are the top 5 articles on PSW in December.
