October post

Another month has gone and it is time for me to share my most popular posts for October. The posts below are the posts that has been my most popular once in October month. Hopefully those posts will still get a lot of visitors in November, but I will also try to analyze them closer to see if I can figure out what have made them the most popular once. Hopeful I can use this knowledge in my future posts here on Techwork to write even better posts about the stuff that you my readers are looking for. If you have not yet read the posts please go ahead and dig in.

My Top 5 posts in October

  1. Review of Samsung BD-D8500 HDD Recorder
  2. Usb 3.0 Superspeed Vs ESATA
  3. Upcoming Phones With Windows 7.5 Mango
  4. My Google Analytics Stats for Q3 2011
  5. 10 Great Windows 7 Keyboard Shortcuts

Once thing I for sure can see is that reviews and tips about specific devices and gadgets are very popular. So are How-to articles and posts about troubleshooting a specific issue like when I wrote the post about the issues with the Arras WordPress themes that I use on this blog.

Now I would like to hear which post you liked the best and why? You are also very welcome to come with suggestions for new topics you would like me to blog about.

    Hey Thomas,

    It’s been awhile since I’ve been by but wanted to stop by today and see what your top posts have been for the previous month.

    I can’t believe October has already come and gone. I have no doubt you’ve got a lot of interesting topics under your belt for this month too.

    Hope you are doing well.

  3. How do you measure top 5 posts? Do you base primarily on traffic or engagement level? I personally would rate a post with 50 comments and 200 visits more popular than one that has 2000 visits all from a Stumbleupon spike with no traffic.

    I find that in 3 years of blogging, I am trying to be more focused on engagement vs traffic for each specific article. Being remembered in the reader’s mind and as somebody they connected with is more important than just visits to an article.

  4. Okay, when I switched my Twitter ID for this comment looks like it fixed the last one. Thank goodness.

  5. In my case the top post on my site tends to be contests by # of comments, but traffic is often a different story and follows trends quite often. I had one post bring 30k visits for a single post in a month, yet only yield about 10 comments.

    Hi Thomas,

    My favorite post is your Google Analytics for Q3 2011. You made me realized that i should include StumbleUpon in my linkbuilding strategy. I’m getting a decent hits from that site just like you said. Thanks a lot.

    Hi, Thomas.

    Long time no see. I love the way you check back on the articles you’ve written and analyze them. What a great idea. I must confess, I haven’t read each of the posts on your list, but I really enjoyed posts #4 and 5. They were both very interesting and helpful.

    Keep up the great work!

    Great idea for a post Thomas – nice way to help with interlinking. Two of my all time most visited posts were written by my sister-in-law. I wish she’d write more posts. :) Although I just had a post get some attention that is currently taking the top spot so I still have bragging rights. ;)
