…and I found a post called ‘Most Popular Memes – Febuary 09’.

Was just wondering what the most popular KYM entries of the moment are?
(This is more directed at Jamie or Chris…)

We get a new analytics report each monday. I’ll try to post the results for the last week once I get the report.

Top 10 searched-for memes for the week

Courage Wolf : 2759
Tenso: 1301
Zalgo: 1141
Philosoraptor: 1120
son I am disappoint: 969
Socially Awkward Penguin: 910
fsjal: 871
pedobear: 793
Yo dawg: 721

Note: The “how fast can you click” forum topic got over 18,000 visits, more than any single meme entry.


Most Popular memes for the week.
X Doesn’t change facial expressions: 13,390
Auto-tune: 12,239

Unfortunately, the rest of the visits on the site were mostly spent browsing the Confirmed pages rather than centering on any specific meme. I imagine that has something to do with the more obscure meme submissions coming in lately.

Also, all the memes people know about are covered up by the FAIL entry.

Ooh, looks like people are liking a bit of the Courage Wolf at the moment.
I’m suprised at Tenso, I didn’t realise that one was so popular…

I’ve noticed that recently confirmed memes seem to be edging away from the popular ones that everyones heard of and the ones that circulate around 4chan (I suppose there can only be a finite number of them after all). Its nice to see more memes from around the world, gives a good representation of the internet as a whole rather than just the parts that relate specifically to America and Britain.

Thanks for that Chris, its rather interesting seeing what sort of memes people seem to be drawn to :)

Yeah, I was surprised by Tenso’s popularity as well. It’s an important reminder that there’s more to the internet than the English-speaking web.


I know, you’re absolutely right. The more time that goes by, the more memes get covered up by Fail in Confirmed and The King in Submissions. I can’t wait until we get that bug worked out.

Tenso’s popularity may have something to do with this.

It’s part of the cheezburger network.

/agree with Capt. B, I’ve been seeing a lot of Tenso on
