If you glanced at the sidebar, you would have noticed a new section called “Popular Posts”. This section lists a few posts which have been very popular among vc readers. This list is not created by us manually, but is done automatically based on certain parameters. The popularity of the post depends on the number of views, number of comments, trackbacks, permanent link views etc. Based on these factors, a number is computed and assigned to the post and the list is created.
Posts which have been linked by others get more weight, so do posts which have a large number of comments and track backs. As various posts are viewed and comments are made, the popularity rating of the post also changes and the list gets updated. We hope this list will give you a glimpse into what is popular here at vc.
