Most popular pages on QuirksMode.org
Recently Google released the very handy Webmaster Tools app, with which you can see how many links to pages there are, plus quite a few other goodies. This allowed me to create a Top Ten list of the most popular pages on this site, as measured by incoming links.
- Homepage: 23,913 links
An unsurprising first place.
- CSS contents page: 5007 links
- QuirksBlog index: 3565 links
A surprise, too. Sure, I expected some links to QuirksBlog, but also expected most of them to point to specific stories.
- Conditional comments: 2398 links
The fourth place of this page doesn't surprise me in the sense that I already knew it was popular. When querying Google for conditional comments this page comes up second or third, directly after Microsoft's official explanation.
Nonetheless I don't really see why this is the fourth most popular page on my site; there must be many more explanations of conditional comments all over the Web. Apparently people think I'm doing a good job of explaining them.
- Multiple Explorers: 2161 links
Same remarks as the previous. Apparently this page is filling a void.
- Tableless forms: 1748 links
Again a surprise. I created this page back in 2003 and quickly lost interest. There must be many better other examples of the same effect.
- Styling an input type="file": 1708 links
This page was quite popular just after I released it, and apparently this popularity is lasting.
- The AJAX response: XML, HTML, or JSON?: 1455 links
The single QuirksBlog entry in the Top Ten. It generated quite a bit of discussion back in December 2005, and apparently that has had a lasting effect.
- Quirks Mode and Strict Mode: 1240 links
The popularity of this page is probably due to this site's name; when searching for "Quirks Mode" a page on "QuirksMode" obviously has a high ranking.
- Clearing floats: 1007 links
Again a surprise. This is just an overview page.
So be it. My readers have spoken.
