Last year GoFISHn had 4.1 million pageviews, which is pretty good for a site that's barely two years old.
We went back into the data from Google Analytics to figure out our most popular posts and came up with this top 12 list. We chose the top 12 based on pageviews, but as you'll see below, we also included how many Facebook "likes" each post has to date.
You can see some pretty clear trends here. Big fish, like the Fat rainbow trout, really rule the ratings, and they get the most Facebook likes. Butch Brown's amazing catch of largemouth bass ("five bass, 65 pounds) was by far the biggest viral hits of the year. But folks also like oddball stories, like videos/11505-garrison-keillor-on-carp-vasectomys-the-answer” />Garrison Keillor's hilarious skit on carp vasectomies and cyclops sharks. Pretty angler girls also attract attention, predictably enough.
We hope you'll enjoy this trip down GoFIShn's 2011 memory lane.
