The key to great blog stats is all in the title. If you can figure out what search terms people are using to research a particular topic, you can rule the search for hits. I’ve found this true not only from this blog, but from other web projects. This blog has been active for 22 months. Below are the most popular postings by title:
Jesus Was A Polygamist? – Clearly no one is interested in my thoughts on a silly painting.
The Worst Chicken Coop Ever Made – If you misspell “Chicken Coop” in your title, the URL keeps your typo and everyone else who misspells that word finds your religious blog
Jesus and the Mayans – I’m thanking the Hemispheric Theory of the Book of Mormon for this one.
We Need to Apologize – This isn’t popular in search terms so it must be that I put it front and center (and it’s so different than what most LDS hear from Evangelicals).
Joseph Saved Me From Getting Hung Up On Jesus – A big thanks to ex-mormon.org for discussing this thread.
We Push Them Out Into What? – My big splash into the Bloggernacle. A number of blogs linked to this article.
Calvary Chapel is a Cult – Calvary Chapel should be worried about the number of people using this search term.
