Most Read Articles Index: How it is Composed

The main index of articles numbered from 1-266 was compiled strictly from hard Google Analytics data on the number of unique page views each article in GWS Media and GWS Robotics attained during the period from August 1st 2016. The Top 266 was last updated on September 1st 2021 with data to August 31st. Position 1 represents the most read article and 266 the 266th most read.

Because the index combines data from both GWS Media and GWS Robotics, it cannot be programmed to update itself automatically in real time, but we hope to keep updating it manually on a periodic basis, time permitting. 

To get the most out of this index, we suggest using the Find function on your device (on Windows, this would be CTRL-F) to search for keywords of interest.


Presentational Restoration of Older Articles

All articles predating August 2016 but dated May 7th 2010 or later were automatically transferred from our old site at the time of the launch of the new one in August 2016. This accounts for the majority of the total archive.

Many of the articles imported from two earlier versions of our website (2010-2013 and 2013-2016) were found at a recent audit to have some formatting and coding issues, resulting in poor layout and display on our new site. In a few cases, text was corrupted, with parts of the original text needing to be restored. Embedded videos, where present, often no longer played. Many images were unnecessarily small, and quite a few no longer displayed at all.

We have attempted since the summer of 2019 to restore to a decent standard of presentation all articles in the then-Top 210, and all outside the current Top 266 that we have so far picked for our Selected Articles section.

In this restoration work, we have been limited only by the size of the largest available images and, in some cases, the non-availability of caches of the original versions of the articles. The work on the articles in the current Top 266 (then Top 210) was completed on Monday 21st October, 2019.

Most of the articles outside the Top 266 that have not yet been restored and added to the index fall into the category of 'Weekly Roundup' posts about topical news of the time. The presentational standard of these articles and others that are not linked directly from this index page may be imperfect.

Similarly, we cannot guarantee the integrity of links to pages at external sites in older articles, and advise you to approach these links with discretion and due caution while enjoying our articles.

Links to internal pages in GWS Media have been updated for all published articles in the Top 266 and some outside the Top 266 that are parts of a series.

To nominate an article outside the Top 266 that is of interest to you for presentational improvements, or to report bad links, typographical errors or other issues affecting any article at all, please don't hesitate to contact our lead copywriter Philip on [email protected].

Also, if you have any suggestions for articles you would like to read on GWS Media or GWS Robotics in the future, please feel welcome to email us your requests or suggestions!

We hope you enjoy the archive of our most read and selected other articles!
