I have been doing a short research on page hit rankings on Distrowatch after +Jocix made a cheering post earlier about getting elementary OS to the top. And I found some interesting results. If you open the website linuxmint.com which is currently #1, you will find all usual things along with a section for monthly news about the development of the OS and upstream updates. If you open manjaro.org which is currently #2, there is also a section for news. debian.org #3, also a section for news and one for updates. In https://solus-project.com/ (#4) it has a link to the blog page, which is an open discussion and news page of the same website. Same for antergos.com (#5) which has a section called "Latest news from our blog". Why am I talking about this common feature in all the above mentioned websites that is blog or news section? If you are a new user to a distro, you visit the website to download the distro. But once you start getting used to the distro, getting excited about it, or becoming a "fan" of it, you wanna get updates about what new features are coming, and what is the latest version, who are doing reviews, etc. So you keep visiting the website, long after you have download it. The common thing in all the above mentioned websites are the fact that the users who have already downloaded the distro keep visiting the websites frequently for news and updates. But in case of https://elementary.io/, there is no news or blog integrated in to the website and for good reasons (it keeps things simple). Once a guy downloads elementary OS from the website he is done with the website, he/she would then visit the google plus page or facebook page of elementary OS for news and updates. No further reason to revisit the website what so ever. This is one big reason why the rank of elementary is always down compared to the above ones and why page hit rankings on Distrowatch don't necessarily mean popularity of the distro. It is also supported by the fact that the rankings are calculated per day basis. So if I am a fan of a distro and keep visiting the website every day for news and updates, its rankings would go up compared to elementary where people would go only to download the OS. In reality, it could be that a far more users are using elementary OS, compared to the above mentioned ones but have no reason what so ever to revisit the website. So you see, elementary might be sitting in a far better position than it seems to be.

Looks like you can't even trust top gear for a bit of honestly. An old video - but good to reflect that you can't stop good idea.
