We’ve nearly made it to the end of another year and it’s time to wrap up the annual rewiew on SnookerHQ by recalling the top 10 most read stories in 2018.
Here, there’s an opportunity to reflect on another twelve months that provided countless moments of jubilation and joy, coupled with numerous instances of defeat and despair.
Over the last few days we have considered some of the highs, which included Mark Williams’ fantastic third Crucible crown and Ronnie O’Sullivan’s record breaking UK Championship title – the latter earning the Player of the Year for a second time in succession too.
There was also a look back on a few of the lows, fronted by the banning of two more cheats for match fixing.
For SnookerHQ, it was another hugely successful period as the website continues to provide daily coverage of the sport at professional and amateur level.
This year, the site attracted more than 635,000 page views – a staggering 94% increase from the 2017 figure.
In total, there have been 423 posts published while the website has also generated more interest on social media with almost 29,000 follows across Facebook and Twitter.
A huge thank you to all of those who contributed to SnookerHQ’s success in 2018 – especially all the readers, who, by continuing to support the site, help to make the devotion of time to this cause worthwhile.
With your help, we can make 2019 even better.
Here are the top 10 most read stories from 2018. Happy New Year!
