Déjà Vu is officially popular! · 2:44am Sep 15th, 2016

Now, to some writers, making the popular stories section wouldn't mean a thing. I, however, am not one of those writers (I've only made it there once before), so when I logged on and saw this:

I was quite a happy camper.

Thank you, everyone who's checked this story out, liked it, favorited it, and generally enjoyed it! I'm so glad to see that my story is getting such great feedback! Stay awesome, everyone! Cheers :pinkiesmile:

One of these is broken. · 4:54am Oct 11th, 2015

I found my fic in the Popular Stories side bar.

It has 19 views, and you can't find it on any of the pages when sorting all stories by Heat, aka clicking More Popular Stories.
Either my view count is broken or the Popular Stories side bar uses a very different and broken algorithm for finding what's popular than the normal sorting by Heat.

I'm willing to bet it's the latter.

Wielder of the Orb is STILL going up! · 8:46pm May 22nd, 2016

Wow... even though it's only '26 views', The Wielder of the Orb is actually at the top of the popular stories list! (I have absolutely no idea how it got up there with so few views...)

But here's a look at the front page when I came on:

Look at the top right, there's the triple author collab story I made with Forestshadows and Dreadnought, "The Wielder of the Orb"

Final Note: Heading off the Inevitable · 12:17am Aug 19th, 2016

I probably should have said this in advance, even though I figured it would be obvious at this point.

Yes, I know Ashes is rather convoluted, dark, expositiony, and not everypony's cup of tea. This isn't a story I expected to be popular, even among readers who have grown to expect this as my signature style.

In this particular case, I am totally okay with this.

What makes stories popular on fimfiction? · 10:15pm Feb 15th, 2018

Or more accurately: What factors except writing quality make stories popular?

To answer this question, I extracted the metadata from all published stories on fimfiction.net in July 2016. This includes number of views, likes, dislikes and comments, tagged characters and genres, content rating (everyone, teen, mature), status (complete, incomplete, on hiatus, cancelled), date of publishing and last modification, and whether there is a story image.

Online shopping for blank t shirts @ “www.shirtcotton.com”. · 6:44am Aug 19th, 2016

With the advancement in technology, and with the help of internet, we can enjoy shopping just by sitting home. Online shopping allows you to comparison shop for prices, and save a lot of time in the process. You can also save time in choosing the right size of yours, instead of roaming around the mall. Stores offering wholesale clothing will normally offer a good selection of different brands for blank apparel, men’s apparel, women’s apparel, and kids’ apparel as well

Pinkie's *Bug* Surprise is popular?! · 4:09am January 24th

I turn around for a second, and when I turn back, one of my stories is in the 'Popular' tab?

...I genuinely don't know what to say, other than "I'm flattered".

Here I am, just a guy who thought "Y'know what? I wanna write some stories!" And now, I'm being semi-featured on a site that I know for a fact has better authors than me?

I'm really touched.

What tags correlate with popularity on Fimfiction · 3:44am Jul 3rd, 2015

Ever wondered which story tags are most likely to lead to a high view count? You can find out, sort of, by doing a linear regression. You take a big set of stories, and you want to come up with a linear function like

views = a1 * Adventure + a2 * Comedy + a3 * Romance + a4 * WasOnEQD + a5 * Words + a6 * AuthorFollowers + a7 * Age

Story tag results simplified · 7:13pm Jul 3rd, 2015

I did a terrible job of explaining how to interpret the results I presented in my last blog post. Let me try again, without so much math. There's an easier way to interpret the results for the binary independent variables. (The tags. 'Binary independent variables' = 'tags'.)

But first, snu-snu math! (You can skip to the end if you hate math and understanding things.)

The most important difference between using the equation
