I just went ahead and did “print screen” for the stats pages for the year that I get to see and you don’t. So you can fully understand what I mean when I talk about this post or that post being far more popular, or this way of getting referrals being much better.
This is the top posts by views for all of 2018. You know how I mention that the SPOILERS stuff gets far more views than anything else? Well, now you can see what I mean. There’s also the Ratan Nanda and Karan Johar news posts in there, that’s just because people are searching for “Rishi Kapoor cancer” and “Karan Johar babies white” and those posts have those words in them. There’s also all the people searching “Netflix Tamil”. Madhavan re-tweeted the “Top Ten Crying Films” post, you can see the bump that gave me. Anyway, that’s the kind of analysis I do when I see these little anomaly posts, otherwise it’s a pretty straight forward “people like spoilers” kind of list.
And for another perspective on things, which is interesting not just for my stats but for Indian cinema in general, wanna see a map of the world color coded to show where my readers come from?
So next time somebody argues Indian film isn’t global or something stupid like that, show them this map. Except in countries where internet access is restricted and they could not even reach my blog, everywhere in the world reads about Indian film.
Also, for those of you in the lighter colored countries, get competitive! Australia, I really feel you should be able to do at least as good as Canada. Just hit “refresh” more often!
