The State of the Hardy Boys Encyclopedia - 2012 Edition
« on: December 10, 2012, 08:57:44 PM »
As we near the end of 2012, we look back and see where we have come in the past year.  Like last year we have added a couple Casefiles Encyclopedia updates, yet unlike last year we are no longer wondering about the future of the Undercover Brothers. The UB series has come to an end and the new Adventures series is about to begin.

But what makes modern technology even more exciting is that we can track what is popular and what is not.  Below are a few interesting tidbits taken from the sites web statistics based upon most visits to these sections of the website.

An asterisk(*) denotes that a particular item was not in the top list last year.

Thanks for posting the statistics, Skywarp. As always, very interesting to see. I find it particularly interesting that the "Reading Levels" thread (a thread which was started in 2007 and hasn't been posted in since 2008) had the most views- I wonder if that's mainly for people doing Web searches for reading levels for The Hardy Boys, in relation to using the books in classes and libraries, etc.

Yes, that is my guess by looking at the data.
