Today I took a look at the 2016 top 10 posts on StevenCombs.com. Review of top posts is an annual event. This year though, I decided to create a post to capture and share. Below is a list of the 2016 top 10 posts. It includes the post title (as a link), number of 2016 page views and brief commentary.
Total 2016 pages views for the entire site = 63,038
How does that number compare to the previous year? During 2015, page views were 32,358. 2016 saw a 51% increase in traffic. The Pocket C.H.I.P. post was a huge draw to the site. This single post most likely led to additional page views for other posts.
What I’ve learned from this top 10 review is that the most popular posts are those that help others to either make a decision or find a solution to a problem. These types of posts are the posts I most enjoy writing.
Fun/Annoying Fact: I wrote this post on New Year’s eve at 8pm. Xfinity decided this was the evening to have an outage, so I had to use my mobile hotspot to publish this post. Nikki and I are still wondering if we will be able to watch the ball drop in Times Square this year. Yeah, Happy New Year to you too Comcast/Xfinity. Sheesh!
That closes out the 2016 blog posts. My 2017 blog New Year’s resolution is to provide posts that continue to be beneficial to readers and expand readership. If you have suggestions, drop a comment below. See you in 2017!
