Based upon some sound advice by Len Morse on my last post about this I’m going to explore the most popular titles of the last 3, 6, and 12 months.

In this case, I’m only going to concentrate on knowledge since – based upon the stats I’m using – it gets significantly more views than debates.  Also, debates are not eligible for upfront payments.

As last time, this data is measured solely by number of visits to list page i.e. http://www.helium.com/knowledge/%5Bsome id].  Repeats show up in italics.
