Happy New Year! There's something about the new year that prompts many bloggers to take stock of their previous year's content. Whether it's to analyze the popularity of one's previous year's topics or just to get a general sense of what readers liked, doing the most viewed of the previous year is a popular subject for many in bloggers. So, without further ado, here are some of the most viewed posts from the AttorneySync Lawyer Marketing Blog from 2010:

From this review, it looks like social media was still hot in 2010. I wonder if the social media bubble will bust this year. It also appears that our 2009 posts beat our 2010 posts by a landslide. Looks like we need to pay more attention to our blog in 2011. Have a great year!

Google has no economic incentive to help your site […]
