Google Analytics has a page that allows us to rank the posts by the click-through rate (CTR). This is a measure of the rate at which a user clicks on a link if it is presented in a search result. Note that this ranking corresponds to the entire content on the page, not just the question.

Here is the current top 10 with CTR ranges from 87% to 72%:

  1. Does bedops have a command similar to the bedtools makewindows?
  2. Statistical comparison between position-specific scoring matrices
  3. Public SPARQL end points for PubMed?
  4. Levenshtein distance vs smith-waterman algorithm
  5. eQTL analysis in Plink
  6. difference between blastall and blastn?
  7. UCSC Genome Browser automation: command line scripting.
  8. seed and extend algorithm
  9. Cell segmentation and quantification of immunofluorescence in Python
  10. Nobel Prize and Bioinformatics

Also here is the top ten of the most popular pages on Biostar. These are pages that come up most often in searches:

  1. forward and reverse strand conventions
  2. tools to calculate average coverage for a bam file?
  3. Gene ID conversion tool
  4. Where can I download human reference genome in fasta format? hgref.fa file
  5. What is the difference between sequencing depth and coverage
  6. Economics of a career in bioinformatics
  7. How to calculate FPKM (fragments per kilobase of exon per million fragments mapped)
  8. What is the sequencing 'depth' ?
  9. How do I draw a heatmap in R with both a color key and multiple color side bars?
  10. How to efficiently parse a huge fastq file?

This is cool. Can you clarify the time frame we are looking at here? Is it all pages for the history of the site? Thanks.
