A few months ago, we started using Google Analytics to rack track web traffic. It’s a bit addicting looking at all the different ways they present the data and seeing which posts are being read the most. I thought it might be fun to look at the top posts that were posted during the previous month. Here, then, are Top 10 SF Signal Posts for October 2006.

  1. 5 (Spoilery) Things About Heroes That Annoy the Begeezus Out Of Me
  2. Reader Challenge #5B – The Coolest Science Fiction Setting (TV/Film)
  3. What Are Your Favorite “Literary” Science Fiction Novels?
  4. Musings On The Current Science Fiction TV Scene
  5. REVIEW: The Android’s Dream by John Scalzi
  6. Science Fiction as Entertainment
  7. REVIEW: The World of Null-A by A.E. van Vogt
  8. REVIEW: Wings to the Kingdom by Cherie Priest
  9. Name the Next Sith Lord
  10. Star Wars Screen Tests

Looking at the top overall hits in October, which includes posts published earlier, we get a decidedly different – and much more telling – list:

  1. Review – The Prestige by Christopher Priest
  2. Numa Numa Dance Kid
  3. Top 10 Star Wars Spoofs
  4. Peter Pan In Scarlet
  5. 5 (Spoilery) Things About Heroes That Annoy the Begeezus Out Of Me
  6. REVIEW: The House of the Scorpion by Nancy Farmer
  7. SF/F Writers Who Blog
  8. Reader Challenge #5B – The Coolest Science Fiction Setting (TV/Film)
  9. What Are Your Favorite “Literary” Science Fiction Novels?
  10. Forklift Safety Video

I noticed that some of the less-expected post titles are the result of having been tagged in StumbleUpon, but that still doesn’t explain Numa Numa. Not that anything ever could… :)
