It was a momentous year for news — and with that came record numbers of visitors to msnbc.com. (Thank you for that!)
But what were the stories that users clicked on most?
To find out, we've compiled the top 15 most-clicked pages of 2008. You'll see some of the big stories of the year — the presidential election, Sarah Palin, the raid on the polygamist ranch in Texas, the death of Heath Ledger — and several surprises.
Please note: These figures are for individual stories. Quite often, stories — such as the earthquake that hit China — are updated over several days, meaning that the traffic to them is split over several files. In addition, we have not included such features as slideshows, which attract multiple clicks per visit.
We look forward to seeing you again in 2009!
