Updating this one today. I mentioned recently that the posts I think are my best posts are some of my least read. I also posted on Facebook that my most views in one day is still from 2014 when a Twitter celebrity retweeted my Michael Vick post. I decided to look to see if there has been any change in my top viewed posts since I wrote this 5 years ago. There has been a bit of change see below for the big reveal
Link or It Didn’t Happen This one is weird. A lot of hits from Google searches and for a while if I googled the phrase this post was a top option. Again, a lot of disappointed customers. Still number one after all these years. I did just recently update the post, so the date looks more current than it really is.
Eastern Travel Services/Megabus – A Review – I somehow left this one off last time. Still number 2 after many years. My review of a bus service to NYC from years ago.
The Alan Meme A lot of the hits for this one come from overseas. I think they were looking for something else. A lot of disappointed customers there. Still solidly in third place. Weird
Michael Vick This one was helped by a popular Twitter user retweeting it and it still only has 252 hits. That’s how small my audience is. This one is now up to 326. It’s actually behind my About page, but I’m not counting that.
The Lori Loughlin Scandal in Full House GIFS –Finally a newer one jumps into the top five. This was helped by Twitter as well and my relentless sharing of it whenever the scandal is in the news.
On Marches and Life – What I think is one of my better posts. I’m glad it has cracked the top five. This also benefits from a lot of sharing after various news stories.
Dropping out of the top five were these two. They actually dropped 5 spaces each and some other news ones jumped over them. I have a feeling the Washington Post Detective Bracket post will surge into the top five soon as it seems Google is directing people to my blog as much as it is directing people to the actual bracket.
Facebook Again This one I can’t explain. Just an average run of the mill post about Facebook. I’m not sure why it was read more than the rest of my boring run of the mill posts.
No Time is a Good Time for Goodbye This is the one I wrote in the aftermath of the loss of my mom. No surprise why it was read so many times. It is still hard.
So, there you have it. My five most read blog posts since I’ve started this thing. I’ve written much better than most of these. Weird that these are the ones that people read.
