I was a bit puzzled regarding the reasons why my blog has seen a significant increase in traffic over the past few days. Upon reviewing the keywords used by my readers to find LeapComp, I realized that there were 3 old posts in particular that were getting a lot of attention.
Super Bowl XLIV:
I wrote my first Super Bowl post last year with an analysis of how much football players participating to the Super Bowl received in bonus ever since the first Super Bowl. With yesterday’s great performance of the New Orleans Saints against the Indianapolis Colds, many people are intrigued by the player’s bonus once again.
But the Super Bowl was not the only thing on my reader’s mind. With the Oscar season quickly approaching, and with great movies in 2010 such as Avatar, District 9, Inglourious Basterds, and Up, my article about how much Oscars are worth is also seeing a surge in popularity.
2010 Winter Olympics
And that’s not all the excitement. On top of the Oscars and the Super Bowl, the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver are starting in a few days on February 12. My article “Olympics Pay-for-Performance, Cash-for-Medals” was a hit when I wrote it two years ago, and it is still a hit this week.
