It's been a little over six million minutes since I put the very first post on this website. I don't really know how many
visitors and page views we've had since then because I've only been using Google Analytics since July of 2005. That's almost two million minutes though, which is a pretty long time, so I thought I'd ask Analytics to give me Top Content for the time that it knows at least.
Surprisingly, it only takes a few seconds for Analytics to churn through and add all that up; the results are in the table below. I understand the popularity of most of these pages. There are two that make no sense: The "Google Earth Street View"
and the "Panasonic LF-D201U DVD-RAM" get traffic for no reason that I can guess.
If you aren't using Analytics, you are missing out on a lot of useful and interesting data. I wish I could go all
the way back to 1997 with this, but having it from 2005 isn't shabby either.
====> This little exercise made me wonder just what is
the highest page view tally for a single "real" page. That is, a real
post that people read: not AOL's home page or anything else that
changes constantly, but a static page like these.
I tried Googling but all I find is pages like this or references to
Orkut, Facebook, etc. Those aren't what I want to know. Any ideas?
