Here are my most-viewed postings to date (Aug 2012) on the Shroud of Turin

WordPress has a splendid stats feature. Here’s a summary of my most-viewed postings (50 visits or more). Older ones will tend to have more visits (naturally), more recent ones fewer, so some of the more recent ones may be higher in say 3 months time and vice versa.

This list does not include postings to my two other sites, notably http://www.colinb-sciencebuzz.blogspot.com and www. strawshredder.wordpress.com. both of which have a substantial number of postings on Shroud-related issues, the first especially.

The entries below are all ‘hot links’ needless to say. Enjoy – or grind your teeth in fury as the case may be…

Afterthought: but for Shroudie news aggregation sites, one in particular, there would be far more hits and perhaps responses, here on my own site to my own original content. It’s the copying-and-pasting of most of one’s work – sometimes within minutes of posting – that I object to most. Visitors to those other sites then feel, probably correctly, that they have been supplied with the gist, and then  feel no incentive to visit one’s site. This pirating of others’ content (let’s not mince our words – it IS pirating) then impacts unfavourably, disastrously even, on one’s ranking in search engines under general search labels like “shroud of turin” since the inter-site linking and CLICKS that one needs to register with the Google and other algorithms simply does not occur. I see Google has just announced that sites that facilitate the pirating of films, books, music etc will now find themselves de-ranked.  I sincerely hope the same will apply in due course to ALL sites whose standard MO is the pirating of  large chunks of others’ content – often graphics an’ all –  with what can only be described as indecent haste.
