    All are excellent articles. #1 and #2 have been very useful resources (along with many other articles on JCD) and #9 was just plain cool.

    Happy Holidays Jacob!!!

    Thanks for this mashup Jason! Really invaluable information here. You might already know this, so this is for everyone else just the same. The popularity/age irregularity is most likely from getting more traffic from google/SE’s. As the article pages get older, they get more trust/authority from google, and ultimately end up higher in the search results. This also in turn results in more links from people who wouldn’t otherwise find you, and the process repeats itself many times over. Trust and authority play a huge part in Google’s PR algorithm, so you can look forward to these posts only growing in popularity =D. I’m not sure if this is the case for you, as I would have to see the analytics, but I’d be willing to bet it is. You should definitely make this a “most popular on JCD as of 2010 post,” and make a new one based only on the 2010 stats; I for one, really hope you do. If you or anyone else has any questions/comments about this, hit me up on twitter. Thanks again for the resources.

    Great round up post!
    One thing: I didn’t get an update from your blog for the looongest time!! Is it Feedburner acting up or what?

    My favorite BY FAR was the post that was just made from the guys over at We Graphics. It talks about how to become a self-made graphic designer but has some very interesting insights and basically covers everything I have learned myself in the past 3 years in only 1 blog post! Check it out :)

    Kyle,
    Some valid points… how would you get the stats just for the 2010 posts though? To get these stats I made the date range from Jan 1 2010 to the current date. How can I say ‘just posts from 2010′?

    Momekh,
    It should be working… is this the feed you are using? http://feeds.feedburner.com/JustCreativeDesignBlog

    Nick,
    Thanks for the share, quite an article.

    Sorry, I followed the comments for a few days, but unsubscribed right before that response. You obviously found a way already =D, but a quick and easy method for stuff like this would’ve been: Traffic sources > content > top content and at the bottom, Filter page: containing \2010\. This might not always be the most efficient way though.

    I also noticed you’re using a plug-in to display the same Analytics code on every page. You should really look into all the features Analytics offers. It can dramatically improve the insight into your visitors, help improve their experience, and also convert more traffic into leads. For instance, if the 300k people that visited your portfolio page in 2010 spent a couple seconds there then went back to reading or left the site you could deduce them as simply interested readers. Now what if they came directly from a search engine after searching for logo design company, then immediately spent 5+ minutes on the portfolio page, and left the site. That, on the other hand, was a potentially lost customer. They should have continued to the hire me page, but for a million possible reasons they left the site instead. If you monitor those types of analytic campaigns you can funnel the visitor where you what them to go, as efficiently as possible. If a substantial amount of potential customers continue leaving that funnel before reaching the goal, you can then conclude why the problem exist, and it’s usually always something so simple that there would’ve been no possible way to have guessed why it was happening. Trust me when I say it’s one of the best tools a site owner can ever learn. Best of luck to ya!
