Top Content by Top Content Creators for Handshake 2.0

I would like to celebrate and thank all the content creators – writers, artists, photographers, and videographers - who joined me in sharing the best business news, information and ideas we could find in 2009 with Handshake 2.0's audience.

In particular, I'd like to note the posts and their writers that brought the most people, a.k.a. site traffic, to Handshake 2.0.  Listed below are the top ten traffic-producing posts on Handshake 2.0 from January 1, 2009 – December 10, 2009, according to Google Analytics.  Interestingly enough, the top post is not by the site's founder, nor are the majority.  My simple conclusion:  It takes a team.

This team's shining star is Z. Kelly Queijo whose top ranking post has triple the traffic of the next highest ranking post, all of the rest of which have similar numbers.
