Now that we’ve counted down the top posts from the archives, we’re going to count down the top posts of the year, based on direct page-views. (These could be slightly out of order as most posts are accessed by main page accesses, but, as daily visits are fairly consistent, the relative order should not be off two much.) Our expectation is that many of these posts will continue to be read in the years to come as SI posts, which focus on education and not entertainment, truly do stand the test of time (as explained in our previous posts)!
What does all this mean? Come back tomorrow for our analysis.
