Top 50 Instructables Authors Ranked by Pageview Density

This is the seventh in a series of data-analysis posts. Check out the first here. I love statistics, analysis, and raw data and so thought I'd share some of the really cool stuff with you. Thanks to trebuchet03 for helping with this and actually crafting the queries.

Here are the authors who have the greatest pageview density (total number of pageviews divided by number of Instructables).

Those are ... interesting statistics. It certainly looks like most "views" happen when an Instructable is mentioned and linked to from elsewhere, rather than by regular instructables users. Any ideas which the best sites to get mentioned on are?

Kipkay has his own site, and links this site for people to see the instructions.

Digg can do a tremendous amount of traffic, but something like Mouse Mouse never got on Digg but still did way more views then "Dugg" Instructables.

duh! I added a lot of new instructables... Only with my first one I did 90k views :D
