I think it is helpful to have access to as much statistical data as available. Just by looking at the numbers sometimes some amazing revelations are possible like in the movie Moneyball…

Yes, the amount of emails which carried the article link is indeed amazing! That must require some pretty neat analytics.
I also like where you can see how you rate as an expert author in the niche. Cool!
