Back last September I installed a plug-in that allows me to do ad-hoc reporting right from within my blog software. Since this is the same place I go to post content, I look at these stats more often than those provided by my web host. I checked tonight and ran a report of the most popular content by hits since last September. Of course, the RSS feeds are at the top, so I left those out and just focused on the links that lead to content:
1 – Podcasts: you might expect this given that most people access the site for my podcast. If you go there now, it is a pretty ugly category output that makes it difficult to download shows in bulk. I’ll be replacing this with it’s own page shortly.
2 – Pinot Noir: The Sideways effect and all that; might be a good time to do another podcast focused on this grape from another perspective than my past podcasts. Perhaps a three-way shootout between California, Oregon and Burgundy?
3 – About: No surprise here. Looks like I need to update this with more information and perhaps a photo.
4 – Winecast 40 ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ Grenache: This is mostly driven from the link on the front page of CellarTracker (I interviewed Eric LeVine on the show). Thanks for the traffic, Eric 😉
5 – Cabernet Sauvignon: Hmm, I haven’t covered this varietal since Winecast 29 and have yet to tackle Bordeaux. Now on my list for a podcast or two this fall.
6 – Tasting Notes: I post only about half of the notes I write. I will endeavor to do more frequently and even post older notes.
7 – Zinfandel: I love Zin and seems other do as well. Not sure if I need to do anything more on this varietal right now, however.
8 – Wine Blogging Wednesday: Lenn Thompson’s monthly virtual tasting that I have been participating in for the past 16 months. Viva WBW!
9 – Wine News: I’ve posted over 100 stories since I started, but have gotten out of the habit of late. I’ll have to get back into the groove here.
10 – Riesling: Another of my personal favorite varletals that I should revisit this summer. Maybe some New World Riesling?
Once I figure out how to pull a report of my most commented posts, I’ll list those and make some comments. This type of thing helps me to make sure the content of the podcast and blog are in tune with what you are looking for. Thanks for the clicks…
Very good reading. Peace until next time.
