If I could figure this out, I suppose my blog would be a lot more popular. Over the course of the past 3 months, if I look at the most popular pages on the blog and exclude the home page, these are the top ten:
Machete – My review of the film includes two photos side-by-side of Jessica Alba showing how her nude scene was the product of CGI. And also a picture of the very hot Avellan twins. People are searching for both of those and seem to end up here.
HK Links – I’ve got a fairly large list of HK blogs here, not maintained as rigorously as I should.
Pay Duty to Bring Your Own iPad to China – Obvious why people would be interested in this.
Gay Marriages Will Save the Economy – From two years ago, this includes the video of the same name from Funny or Die, and when people search on that title I’m the number 3 result. There’s also a very nice picture of Anne Hathaway and people searching for pictures of her seem to end up here.
Singapore Fail Whale – Showing how a tourism poster for Singapore seems to have copied Twitter’s famous fail whale.
Best Albums 2010 – This post ended up being in Largehearted Boy’s year end round-up of listings on this subject.
Chrissie Chau Grows a Cup Size – Everyone is always searching for more pictures of Chrissie. She’s a Facebook friend and she’s done at least one shoot at my photo studio but I’ve never met her IRL.
iPad and VPN – People outside the US want Hulu and others on their iPad.
iPhone 4 No Longer Available From Apple HK Web Site – Pretty much what it says.
Osteria Ristorante Italiano at the Holiday Inn Golden Mile – When the Holiday Inn offered me a free night in exchange for a possible review and then ended up comping me on meals as well, I wasn’t sure if it fell too far outside of what I normally cover here but gave it a shot.
So, there you have the top ten. There is no common thread. Sex figures in 3 of the 10 (with photos that I got from elsewhere.) News about Apple products also make up 3 of the 10. One post on music. One restaurant review. And the Singapore fail whale.
As near as I can figure it, if I want the blog to be more popular, I should be concentrating on posts that have news about Apple products combined with photos of relatively famous women showing a lot of cleavage. Look for lots of future posts about iPhone 5 rumors combined with photos of Bar Rafaeli in a bikini.
