|Surely these two aren't responsible?|
The three posts in question are: Mud, Solanum Sallet, and Cowbag, all from earlier this year. Surprisingly, both Mud and Solanum Sallet don't have page breaks/jumps, so the whole post can be read without having to click on it to see the rest of the content (like Cowbag). The following screen shots were all taken around midday today. As always, click to embigulate!
|As you can see, Solanum Sallet, Mud, and Cowbag, are trouncing the other posts in the page views department|
|For comparison purposes, these are the posts and stats from the same time in 2010 (I presume the Bizarrotron post garnered so many page views because of the Calvin & Hobbes content)...|
|... in 2013 (the top two posts' stats are easily explained as Star Trek and bulges are always popular)...|
|... and 2014 (See?! Star Trek is popular, hence the high page views for the Ships of the Line calendar post. Tin foil hats are also popular, it seems)...|
They constantly show up in the Weekly and Monthly stats - sometimes the Daily stats, too. And, yes, I realise that by linking to them now, I'm probably going to skew future stats, but I don't really care that much.
|Mud, Solanum Sallet, and Cowbag are second only to Tin Foil Hats in the Monthly stats.|
|They're pretty popular in this week's stats, too.|
|Sadly, Cowbag doesn't make it into the figures from the last 24 hours.|
Oh, and for some reason, there are no results for the Search Keywords, except when I select the All Time category, so I can't tell if there's a particular word or phrase in these posts that people are searching for.
|Here are the All Time pageviews, just in case you're interested. It says All Time, but I believe these pageviews are from May 2010 - There's a related post here.|
Why are they so popular? And who is looking at these posts?
Have any of you got any strange or unusual blog stats? What are your most popular posts?
