Here are the Stats for Yesterday’s Slipknot / Corey Taylor Posts
I wrote a post yesterday about Corey Taylor’s new braids, positing that it would perform better than most anything else published on the site despite its completely ridiculous subject matter. Metal “journalism” in 2018, y’all! I promised to share all of the site’s stats with you all, and I’m going to do that now.
Then Slipknot had to go and release a new song, which threw my entire theory out of whack. Obviously that dwarfed Corey’s dumb braids, and probably even negatively impacted the performance of the braids post — because who wants to see Corey’s new ‘do when there’s a new friggin’ Slipknot song?? Still, these numbers show the relative popularity of Slipknot / Corey Taylor above all else and also give insight into the other kinds of content that are popular right now.
Here are ten most visited pages on MetalSucks yesterday, October 31st. Note that this list includes some content published before yesterday (with one from 2013!) and that the numbers do not include continued traffic into today; these stats only reflect traffic on October 31st, 2018.
