Reviewing our stats on ActiveRain I noticed a few posts that we wrote this year that received several thousands of views. So I decided to write a post that summarizes these posts for those of you who may have missed them when they were originally posted.

There is definitely an obvious relationship between being featured on ActiveRain and the view count. Our Facebook related posts seem to get great attention and reblogs too and since ActiveRain added the Facebook Like button to the footer of the posts, the sharing on Facebook by our readers seems to help in gaining additional traffic as well. Those posts with 0 Facebook Likes were posted before this feature.
So what are your most popular posts? Do you see a common theme among them?
