No pages at an obscure technical site are ever really hot, but many nowadays attract more than 100 views per month. There are nearing 2,000 pages at this site. Most are very detailed descriptions of functionality in Windows. Though they are the sort of thing that may be the key to some advanced programmer being able to complete his work, they are beyond arcane to everyone else. I am astonished that any of these pages get looked at even once a day.
This site had 16,095 visits in November 2011, from 11,957 unique visitors. This continues a sharp decrease on previous months. It seems that Google is again losing track of pages here. Inspection of search results and of information at the Google Webmaster Tools suggests there has been yet another change in Google’s disposition to frames and scripts and to this website’s admittedly peculiar redirection of URLs to implement a Table Of Contents using lowest common functionality. A revision of these scripts in December may return me to Google’s favour in the New Year.
There follows a list of pages that were each viewed at least 100 times in November 2011. The faded titles are just index pages which I presume are viewed only or mainly on the way to others, especially while moving from one Table of Contents to another. Two of these index pages are just the skimpiest of placeholders, pending my writing an introduction. The rank in brackets is from the previous month.
