Top 10 Articles of Sysprobs in 2012 – Have You Missed Them Earlier?

Here are the top 10 articles in 2012 based on number of user visits (hits). Sysprobs blog’s performance was just average in 2012, no excitements and big jumps. The traffic level remained same in whole year, and in fact it dropped at the end of year. At last, this blog had served to many internet users who were looking for tips, tricks and how-to-do guides in Windows, Hackintosh and virtualization technologies..

I could not spent more time on this blog to write useful articles in 2012 like how I did in 2011, also I allowed only limited number of guest posts here. These all affected the growth of Sysprobs in 2012. I’m sure year 2013 will be much better for me and blog visitors.

Sysprobs is still being famous on specific topics. Users do visit and leave comments frequently. In case you missed any of the famous articles in 2012, this could be the correct time to view them.

    Hi Dinesh, Its my first visit here. I really liked this blog but one thing that really annoyed me is that you haven’t implemented any technique for the readers to navigate to older posts. I mean something like a numbered navigation or kind’a next page links at the end of homepage.
    Please don’t get me wrong, as I just wanted to give you a feedback about the experience of a first time visitor on this blog.
