I always get a kick out of looking at my own analytics. Mostly because my blog has no focus and you never know what is going to stick and what won’t. To be honest it doesn’t really matter what sticks since I don’t write any of this for financial gain, more as an online diary.
So the top post of the year was “Top posts of 2011“. Perhaps it is a glitch in the matrix? Again it was because of the word “nudity”. What is interesting is the traffic completely vanishes on August 1, 2012. I imagine Google did an update to the search algorithm or to the safe search functionality to remove nudity. Funny that even with half the year missing it was still the top post.
Of the actual posts written in 2012 here are the top posts Jan 9, 2012 Cycling hierarchy I had posted it to Reddit which got a fair amount of traffic, but wasn’t well received. Someone had already written something similar, and wrote it better so…live and learn.
Then in March 22nd I wrote Good Lord, I agree with Ford again posted on Reddit under the Toronto sub-reddit. I was sensing a pattern here!
Nexpoint went to shit was a post in August that did well. This was because my hosting web down and after some research and emails, I realized that they had been purchased and then they totally blew up. I got a lot of traffic from other people who were in the same boat similar to what happened with the Butchers.
I wrote FIFA 2013 is the best FIFA in September and it got a fair amount of traffic. It might be because I wrote it very shortly after the game was released and I had all the correct keywords.
So those were the top posts.
