* not listed in the top 20 last year. 6 posts were new to the top 20 list this year (posts from 2004, 2010, 2011, 2013 [2] and 2014)

5 of the top ten this year were also in the top 10 in 2014 and 2015. 1 other was in the top 10 in 2014 and was 12th in 2016. So there is a fair amount of consistency over the years but also some changes over time.

One of the things this illustrates is why it is so important to have urls (web addresses) live forever. The idea that old (in web thinking) content doesn’t matter is not accurate. My site is a tiny population and shouldn’t be used to make a judgement but it illustrates what is very common for sites with high quality content. If the content is good, the shelf life usually isn’t just 1 week (or even 1 decade).
