Definition of “Most Popular Post”

This new item requires some explanation. It’s the sum of the following:
permalink views x 10
home views x 2
archive views x 4
category views x 6
feed views (full content only) x 1
comments x 20
pingbacks x 50
trackbacks x 80

Add all of these together, and the percentage popularity rating listed at the bottom of each post is the percentage of the highest rated post on the blog. Too bad I didn’t have this running from the beginning…

UPDATE: I’ve changed the weighting per Keith’s suggestions in his comment on “New Stuff” so that comments, pingbacks, and trackbacks are irrelevant, and views are all weighted equally. And I’ll change “Most Popular” to “Most Read”.
