It’s the sizzle (err, sex) that sells (i.e., gets the hits)

The sad truth is that cute and/or sexy women are what bring in the numbers. Just look at the top three posts bringing in the unique hits this week.

Top3withsizzle

Don’t get excited by the hit counts shown in the above snippet. They are for the week! Not the day.

But right up there at the top is Emilia Clarke from Game of Thrones. I posted that on the 7th of July 2012 and Emilia has been my top daily hit every day since then except for 37 days!

ManTranceSnapComing in second—with about 40 percent of the hits Emilia has—is my posting about males been massively visually stimulated when it comes to things sexual. Interestingly this has seven comments, which for my blog is a very high number. I have not done the actual math but I figure that about 98 percent of my posts have zero comments. It is quite possible that this post has the highest number of comments posted (but I have not checked).

Also, even though it was posted back in November 2010 there are comments post in November 2012 and March 2013.

Following are some of the comments. You can go to the actual post by clicking on the comments below.

Coming in third is the ‘Amazing Transformation’ and this posting is always somewhere in the Top 10 and often in the Top 5. Four or five times it has been in the top spot. And again this was posted way back in August, 2010. It has five comments, which, as I noted before, is high for a posting at my site.

I sort of drifted away from doing ‘babe’ posts, but I am thinking I might have to re-think this strategy in order to get the unique count back up.

Any thoughts on this from readers?
