Bayesian top title learner
I finished my wordpress plugin, and, after fixing a few bugs, I think it’s at a usable version. Here is the plugin page, including source code and theory. The basic gist is that it creates a sidebar in your blog with links to some of your posts. At first, it experiments by displaying random posts, then it analyzes the resulting data using a bayesian learning algorithm to determine which post titles are most likely to get clicked. Why am I not using it on my own blog? I’m hosted at wordpress.com which doesn’t let you add your own plugins. Also, there’s nothing of general interest on my blog.
