The Most-Read Posts of 2012

As the year winds down, it's time to see what people found on the blog this year, and once again, the most-read posts are generally older ones. Clearly, search-engine traffic favors older posts, and the visits add up through the year. But look at it this way: these are the posts on topics people searched for this year. Does that say something useful?

  1. What Does Salesforce-Radian6 Deal Mean for Everyone Else? - March 2011 (#3 in 2011)
  2. Applying Social Network Analysis to Social Media - September 2010
  3. Human vs. machine analysis - April 2007 (#5 in 2011)
  4. Visual text analysis - April 2007 (#6 in 2011)

  10. Five Modes of Listening - September 2009
