What Drives Traffic and a Mystery

You'll note the "All time" box in the upper right corner is checked, so this means the five posts highlighted are the all-time page view champs here at EIP.  I cannot, for the life of me, figure out why Number One has so many apparent page views.  That 54,779 number is clearly bogus but that particular post is number one no matter if the criterion is all time, month, week, yadda, yadda.  I just don't get it.  So much for the mystery.  But what drives real traffic?

Well, just for drill, the all-time Top Four posts at EIP, counting up, are:
a drawing of a boiler system,  
a photo of a transrectal prostate biopsy procedure
photos of D-Day
and... drum roll, please... this is Numero Uno:

Yes, again.  Note the wind chill: six below.  But I take comfort in the fact that at least a few people are having a good time somewhere on the planet at this moment... perhaps in the south of France, on some Greek island in the Med, or down in Rio.  Like this:

Puritanism is sometimes defined as "the pervasive feeling that someone, somewhere is having a good time" and hedonism is the exact opposite.  You prolly know which camp beach I'm in on, Gentle Reader.
The message?  Titties get traffic.  LOTS of traffic.  The other message?  EIP is primarily a blog for googlers.  (sigh)


  1. I dunno, Buck, it appears a lot of traffic came your way from the Lexicans.

    1. You're right, Skip. I was wonderin' if anyone would notice that.

  2. I had a co-worker who did a TDY at Istres, France, and his daughter wanted some sea shells for souvenirs, so he drove to the beach one afternoon, and it was nude as far as he went. He's kind of a religious nut, so he didn't stay and wade through all that. He came back the next morning after the sun came up, and after a few feet down the beach he encountered a bunch of nude women, after he stepped off the slope. Crap! He went to a souvenir shack and bought the damned things. Course everyone else was laughing at the story. All I gotta say is: moo!...

    1. That's pretty funny! I suppose it takes all kinds, right?

  3. It sure wasn't the title of the post that got your traffic for you


Just be polite... that's all I ask.
