As 2009 comes to a close, we thought we'd share which stories were read the most on sanluisobispo.com this year. The list is based strictly on page views, which are counted each time the page is opened or refreshed.
Stories that make the most-read list on the website are usually pretty different than what's considered a "top local story" or even most read in the print edition. Many readers come to the website after doing a Google search, or a link to a story on sanluisobispo.com may get picked up from an outside website. Other times, it is San Luis Obispo County readers trying to find information on a big story.
What did you think were the top stories of 2009? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
Hope you all have a happy and prosperous 2010.
