Before the clock strikes midnight tonight, ringing in a new year, I thought a trip down Homorazzi memory lane was called for. I don’t know about you, but I’m a sucker for year-end lists and Top 10 countdowns. It’s the inner nerd in me. I could analyze statistics all day long if time permitted. I’m sure I’m not alone which is why I decided to open up our statistics.

I pulled our Top 25 most popular posts in 2012. Not surprisingly, a few London 2012 Olympic-related posts made the cut. From our Sports Studs weekly feature to my ranking of the hottest gymnasts and divers, it all ranked on the list. What was surprising was which two ranked at No. 1 and No. 2 respectively. I’m pretty sure the fact we got on board this phenomenon early helped its numbers. We’re kinda SEO ninjas.

Speaking of which, I limited the Top 25 list to articles written only in 2012. If I opened it up, you’d find several posts from previous years on the list including our ANTM coverage and our article discussing the five worst celebrity plastic surgery mishaps to name a few. Without further ado, let’s get to what posts readers clicked on the most.
