Here are the Top 10 Posts for 2006 for my blog based on traffic (highest to lowest):

  1. A Hitchhiker’s Guide to Visual Studio 2005 Team System, Part I - (4/15/2005)
  2. Free Download: MSDN Library May 2006 Edition - (7/26/2006)
  3. Viewing Downloaded CHM Files - (6/23/2005)
  4. Visual Studio 2005 Service Pack 1 - (11/9/2005)
  5. A Hitchhiker’s Guide to Visual Studio 2005 Team System, Part II - (4/20/2005)
  6. Free Download: Virtual PC 2004 & 2007 - (7/14/2006)
  7. June CTP - Install Team Explorer for Team Foundation Functionality - (6/17/2005)
  8. Now Available: Visual Studio 2005 SP1 - (12/14/2006)
  9. A Hitchhiker's Guide to Team Foundation Server Workgroup Edition - (3/16/2006)
  10. Visual Studio .NET 2003 SP1 Available - (8/16/2006)

It seems like the Hitchhiker's Guides are popular, so I'll look at doing more of those in 2007. Posts in bold are new for 2006, but they only comprise half of the Top 10.

I'm a bit surprised to see that #7, June CTP - Install Team Explorer for Team Foundation Functionality, is in the Top 10. However, the content of that post explains that Team Explorer is a separate install, but not why. Earlier releases of the Team Editions of Visual Studio included that functionality, but we separated it when it became evident that Team Foundation Server would ship a few months after the rest of Visual Studio 2005. I suspect people are finding that post when searching to know why they can't find Team Explorer functionality after installing one of the Team Editions for Visual Studio.

Friday, December 15, 2006 (the day after Now Available: Visual Studio 2005 SP1 post) was #13.

Hmm...the majority of those days occurred in the first three months of the year. I guess interest waned a bit after Team Foundation Server shipped in March.

Here's the list of the Top 10 Busiest Days by number of readers:

  1. Wednesday, August 16, 2006
  2. Friday, December 15, 2006
  3. Monday, July 31, 2006
  4. Wednesday, February 08, 2006
  5. Friday, March 17, 2006
  6. Tuesday, August 15, 2006
  7. Thursday, March 16, 2006
  8. Monday, March 20, 2006
  9. Tuesday, September 26, 2006
  10. Tuesday, March 21, 2006

That's a slightly better distribution, but it still looks like March was the most popular time to visit this blog.
