The Museum Turns 4 Years Old, Part 2: Individual Tap Statistics

This is an update to a feature I first introduced last year. To revisit the concept, I'm listing which taps generate the most page views on the site. I've divided the rankings based on the year that I profiled the tap, so I've listed the 20 taps with the most views for Year 1, Year 2, Year 3, and Year 4. The number in parenthesis is the previous year's ranking if different; "NR" means the tap was not on the list last year. The first tap on the list has the most views, and the other taps follow in descending order.

As predicted, year 3 changed dramatically, with changes in position on almost every entry, 7 new entries in the top 20, and correspondingly 7 falling off the list. I'm predicting that Year 4 will experience a similar shift next year.
