Key Metrics and Some "Thank You" Notes for 2015

Okay, I'm bored and watching the college football playoffs* (no skin in the game here, but I find myself rooting for Clemson with one of their top defensive players sidelined on the very first play). Upstairs, a Twilight Zone marathon is occurring (host Rod Serling sidling out with a lit cigarette to intro the show is classic).

This seems an opportune time to visit Google Analytics (GA) and find out who has been naughty and who's been nice.

(*You can tell when I started writing this post)


Note: I've omitted some longstanding "list" pages like the various Fabulous 50 Blog Awards and the Top 300 Conservative Websites that would otherwise be in the mix. Numbers represent 2015 page-views as reported by GA.

  1. 113,836: President Barack Obama's Complete List of Historic Firsts [Updated]
  2. 41,114: IMPORTING ISIS: See Where Obama Is Resettling Syrian "Refugees" in the United States
