The majority of people won't even read the articles, which is why so many websites always have "Top 10" articles, and those are always the most viewed as well. I'm sure David will go into more detail in his next actual prospect article, but he was following guidelines set by his employers to gain the most views possible.
Well HF hasn't really had very good articles on our prospects for several years imo, so I never bother to read them. Prospect rankings though always seem to get the most interest as I think people just like to see things rated in some kind of order, I know on my site the top 20 articles always seem to get the most hits along with anything draft related but there's nothing wrong with doing "awards" type articles and I wasn't saying there was. I didn't read the article which is why I didn't comment on it, just was pointing out that I used to do them on my site years ago.
