    Best of Local @ the Local Search Forum: The Big 2014 Countdown

    2014Countdown

    BEST OF LOCAL - 2014 COUNTDOWN


    As the New Year approaches I wanted to do several top 10 countdowns to highlight our top posts of the year and to honor our most active members.

    TOP LISTS WILL INCLUDE:

    1) Top posts of the year, as determined by you, our loyal readers - based on # of views

    2) Top contributors based on # of posts

    3) Top contributors based on # of thanks

    4) Top contributors based on # of NEW threads started.


    There are 3 days left in the year so I'm breaking our top 10 lists down as follows:

    Monday #10, 9, 8

    Tuesday #7, 6, 5

    Wednesday: New Year's Eve we'll feature our top #4, #3, #2 and #1


    So here we go... the next post will highlight our top #10, 9, 8 posts and members of the year!

    Re: Best of Local @ the Local Search Forum: The Big 2014 Countdown

    I excluded myself from all the stats above because this post is to honor all our loyal members and mods.
    But since I'm being transparent about all our stats for the year, below are my numbers too:

    MY STATS
    # of posts 4,010
    # of thanks 1,387
    # threads started 574

    But it's the members that make this place rock!

    And the Top Contributors and Moderators above, along with my Forum Admin, David Baxter are the ones that help me keep this place going with new content and insights every day!

    And I'd be remiss if I did not thank our sponsor Yext! who helps keep the lights on.


    Thanks to all and once again, Happy New Year!
