I periodically post places to find resources that are supposedly the “most popular” of something or other. I might or might not agree with the criteria used to determine that popularity, but I nevertheless find some useful pieces of information.

You can find a collection of these sites at The Best Places To Find The Most Popular (& Useful) Resources For Educators – 2013 (So Far).

Today, The New York Times published What It Means to Be Popular (When Everything Is Popular), which includes “most popular” lists of a variety of topics, including:

Top Pet Names in the USA
Top Baby Names in NYC
Most-Stolen Author
Top-Rated Shakespeare
Most Pirated Movie
