Last month, I decided to start a new series that helps track the statistics of Eazy Cheezy, using Google Analytics. Within my first post, January Traffic, Visitor and Content Analysis, I included the top 10 posts. I’ve since decided to branch out and create a separate post to track the most visited content. I love statistics and this is a ton of fun for me.
During my time as a regular blogger, I’ve quickly learned that you cannot predict what will or won’t be successful. Some of my best work (in my opinion) failed to be noticed, while I’ve been surprised by other posts that have done so well. Of the 10 below, you’ll notice that 60% were originally published in 2008, while 4 new ones jumped into the top 10.
