What were the most-read stories published by Wireless Estimator this year? It’s not surprising to learn that any media with a large audience of contractors, tower owners, tower techs, engineers, safety professionals, and vendors would find that two topics – fatalities and structural failures — dominate the list.
According to Google Analytics, the most viewed article in 2020 was the sad story about two cell site electricians being shot to death while performing an AT&T project in Florida with 395,155 unique views with over 36,000 Facebook likes. Subsequent stories about the tragic event and updates brought the page views close to one-half million.
To date, the Jacksonville Police Department has no credible leads.
A June article regarding an Alabama miracle where two men lived after a rigging failure collapsed a 349-foot tower was the second most-read story of the year.
The third most viewed article was a Spokane, Washington fatality.
Wireless Estimator’s in-depth coverage of lawsuits also captures key readership interest as well as its business news.
As in previous years, articles regarding the FCC are not well read, but are important to a segment of the site’s viewers.
Wireless Estimator steps away from reporting and provides fake news on April 1 and can always be assured of one of the highest viewed articles of the year, such as this shocking 5G study proving that tower techs are 8.7% smarter than the general public.
