I you visit my blog with a browser, there is a good chance that you noticed I added most popular links list to the top of the left column.
I get a lot of visitors from Google or najdi.si searches and those visitors come directly to old posts. It seems to me like a good idea to give them opportunity to see which posts were viewed a lot and try to keep them on my page for a few clicks more. To complicate things a little bit more, the post ranks are displayed for posts posted in last 30, 90, 180, 360 days or since I started bloging. This way more posts get exposed.
I don't have any idea if this actually works, but I think it looks quite nice.
How it works? It is a .Text plug-in but it's not easily plugged in existing .Text installation. Some tricky configuration and a recompile or new dll file is required. If you would like to have this kind of list on your .Text blog, contact me and we will work something out.
