Pareto principle

The blog post on sorted by frequency of clicks that could be traced back to specific posts. We can only count clicks and not really tell whether people actually read the post. When looking at the distribution of the posts, it becomes apparent that the Pareto rule doesn’t hold as with other easily accessible data on the internet. In contrast, the frequency distribution appears to have a Long Tail, i.e. the majority of clicks are hidden in the various posts with lower click count.
