Website Update - Top 10 Page List for March 2011

Top 10 ListIt's time for the monthly update to the top 10 list. But first, a quick note about a small update to a page. Prodded by a blog comment, I revisited one of the factoids on the page, Factoids Debunked & Verified, Part V. The particular factoid was "Woodward Avenue in Detroit, Michigan, carries the designation M-1, so named because it was the first paved road anywhere." The commenter added that "it is claimed in 1909 to be the first highway mile paved with concrete." Go read that page to find out whether those factoids are true or not.

I was a bit surprised this month. My Autogyro History & Theory page had been the most popular page on my site ever since I first published it back when this site was still hosted on my college account. This month, for the first time ever, not just one, but two pages have exceeded the autogyro page in views - the blog entries, A Skeptical Look at MBT Shoes and My Favorite Airplanes. It's not that the autogyro page has gotten less traffic, but that those pages are getting more.

My popular pages are actually spread pretty evenly over when I wrote them. The top 10 list this month has 3 blog entries from 2007, 1 from 2008, 3 from 2009, and 2 from 2010, along with the autogyro page. So far, nothing I've written in 2011 has made the list. Maybe I'm not writing as well anymore, or maybe it's just taking time for enough people to link to those pages to get the traffic coming in.

My total monthly traffic just keeps going up and up. I wonder if this blog finally is getting popular, or if spammers are just all of a sudden getting more prolific. Anyone else out there with a blog care to comment?

Anyway, here's the top 10 list for March:

  1. Blog - A Skeptical Look at MBT Shoes
  2. Blog - My Favorite Airplanes
  3. Autogyro History & Theory
  4. Blog - Origin of Arabic Numerals - Was It Really for Counting Angles?
  5. Blog - Running AutoCAD R14 in XP Pro 64
  6. Blog - Excel 2010 - Fixing a Slow Solver, XP 64
  7. Blog - Letter to Pharmacy about MBT Shoes
  8. Blog - Response to Anti-Liberal Article by Gary Hubbell
  9. Blog - Casio EX-F1 - First Impression of the High Speed Video
  10. Blog - Book Review - Voyage of the Beagle
