No pages at an obscure technical site are ever really hot, but many nowadays attract more than 100 views per month. There are nearing 2,000 pages at this site. Most are very detailed descriptions of functionality in Windows. Though they are the sort of thing that may be the key to some advanced programmer being able to complete his work, they are beyond arcane to everyone else. I am astonished that any of these pages get looked at even once a day.
This site had 18,885 visits in November 2010, from 14,413 unique visitors.
There follows a list of pages that were each viewed at least 100 times in November 2010. The faded titles are just index pages which I presume are viewed only or mainly on the way to others, especially while moving from one Table of Contents to another. Two of these index pages are just the skimpiest of placeholders, pending my writing an introduction. The rank in brackets is from the previous month.
It’s somewhere between pleasure and relief that nearly a dozen pages return to the list now that provision of a sitemap just for Google seems to have prompted Google to start finding these pages again. Quite why 123 visits should suddenly be made to a placeholder page about an obscure compiler option, I should perhaps not want to know.
