Convenience hop: [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/inboundlinks.php inbound links for today]], [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/inbound_referrals.php?pagename=main.InsertTropeHere inbound link sources for a given page]], and [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/relatedsearch.php?term=Main/InsertTropeHere "related to" for any page]].
----
July.14: [[http://kotaku.com/this-smash-bros-fan-fiction-has-3-5-million-words-s-899629991 Kotaku made an article]] on Fanfic.TheSubspaceEmissarysWorldsConquest, which is noted as one of the longest FanFics. Note that the number is ''exaggerated'', since the author goes on rants in the afterwords to deliberately lengthen the count, so the core story is somewhere over a ''million and a half or two, give or take''.
----
Mar.12:[[Tropers/IlVit Il Vit]]: Apparently, [[WizardsOfTheCoast Research and Development]] (of [[MagicTheGathering Magic]] fame) likes TV Tropes, as [[http://www.wizards.com/magic/magazine/article.aspx?x=mtg/daily/rc/238 this article on combo decks]] with a link to NoodleIncident at the bottom has brought in the most people today (so far).
----
Jan. 12: @/{{G-Mon}}: It's only about 7:25 AM CST, and already MathematiciansAnswer has ~9,400 inbounds. Wonder why it's so popular....
----
1/9: @/{{Earnest}}: A [[http://www.cracked.com/article_20178_the-5-most-badass-movie-scenes-that-happened-in-real-life_p2.html Cracked article]] about badass movie scenes is bringing in upwards of 6,200 inbounds to RammingAlwaysWorks.
----
1/9: @/{{Frank 75}}: ChunkySalsaRule gained a lot of inbounds from various programmer sites, probably caused by [[http://www.codinghorror.com/blog/2012/07/new-programming-jargon.html this "Coding Horror" entry]].
----
10/9: @/{{Telcontar}}: The Wiki/{{Wikipedia}} article for [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Space_activity_suit space activity suits]] uses our LatexSpaceSuit page as a cite note.
----
8/24: @/{{TropeEater}}: KnowYourMeme article on "[[StupidSexyFlanders Everyone's gay for]] [[GuiltyGear Bridget]]" linked to the page "Dropped A Bridget On Him", which not only had little to do with the meme, but was renamed a long time ago to UnsettlingGenderReveal.
----
6/3: @/{{Elbruno}}: We've gotten 193 inbounds for {{FanFic.Sweet Apple Massacre}}. Doesn't sound that astonishing until you consider that this is a work article axed by the P5 many weeks ago.
----
5 May: @/{{Telcontar}}: [[http://www.reddit.com/r/pics/comments/ulo7l/a_photo_from_many_years_ago_buried_in_my_closet/c4wh5ih?context=2# When someone on reddit mentions us]], we get 7,435 inbounds in 4 hours. Total inbounds so far today? 13,328. That one commenter has sent ''more than half'' of our hits. Total inbounds for TheGlassesComeOff, ever? 8,150. That page only about 715 inbounds before now.

By the end of the day, clearly that page wasn't at the top any more; we only got a thousand from that link in eight hours. Final number: 11,833.
----
3/27: @/LooneyToons: Reiterating the note that the inbound links are no longer detailed, but now it's TooAwesomeToUse which has an amazing number of hits -- 4,169 as of 9AM EDT this date. (And 4,178 just a minute or two later... could this be some kind of spambot?)

1:10 PM EDT -- 5,142 links, and the hits seem to have slowed down to one every couple minutes now.
----
3/26: Stumbleupon.com linked to us, and in these past few hours FunnyAneurysmMoment.WesternAnimation has gotten 1444 hits and counting; it wasn't on the list at all earlier. The page has only brought 2106 people here in total, so three quarters of those hits are from at most the past 8 hours.
----
2/23: There's [[http://animeng.blog5.fc2.com/blog-entry-795.html this FC2 (Japanese blog)]] linking to GhibliHills. Currently OneHundredEight inbound as of 4 PM Pacific Time.
----
@/{{G-Mon}}: Oddly, we're getting inbounds for the nonexistent MichaelWhelan page from [[http://james-nicoll.livejournal.com/ a LiveJournal page]] ([[http://james-nicoll.livejournal.com/3526685.html convenience link to the entry in question]]). As of January 2, 2012, 2:09 PM CST, we have 71 inbounds to that page this day (~180 total).
----
(December 1st, 2011) Website/{{Cracked}}'s article on [[http://www.cracked.com/blog/5-reasons-money-can-buy-happiness/ 5 reasons why money can buy happiness]] had a link to WhenYouComingHomeDad and RichSuitorPoorSuitor.
----
November 19th, 2011) Website/{{Cracked}}'s article on [[http://www.cracked.com/article_19549_5-old-timey-prejudices-that-still-show-up-in-every-movie.html 5 old-timey prejudices that show up in every movie]] had mentions of and links to VasquezAlwaysDies and WaifFu, and a link to DeathBySex.
----
[[@/DaPatman DaPatman]]: Today's (November 16th, 2011) word on [[http://wordsmith.org/words/yob.html A.Word.A.Day]] includes a link to SdrawkcabName.
----
@/{{Earnest}}: (November 3rd, 2011) Reading through the list of commonly used tropes on ''ScoobyDoo'' is now [[http://www.ya-honk.net/2011/11/03/orestes-doo-where-are-you/ part of the homework]] for a college class on Classical literature.

----
@/{{Specialist290}}: Less of a weird inbound link than a weird target, but it seems like InspectorSpacetime is getting hits from ''absolutely everywhere''. The page is only a couple of days old, too, and seems to be related to ''Series/DoctorWho'' somehow. Not sure what's going on...

@/{{G-Mon}}: No kidding. Just checked the stats, and it's brought in nearly ''15,000 inbounds'' in a little over three days. We are working with a monster here.

@/{{iamthedoctor}}: We've basically created a meme. It helps that io9 posted the link for the page on their website.
----
PZ Myers of [[http://scienceblogs.com/pharyngula/2011/06/the_final_tally_on_the_camp_qu.php Pharyngula]] gives a link to XanatosGambit.
----
A blog post about an octopus linked to NaughtyTentacles with some prime AccidentalInnuendo on display...[[SincerityMode it's safe for work, promise,]] as long as you don't laugh loud enough for your boss to overhear. http://www.passiveaggressivenotes.com/2011/03/10/dont-flash-the-octopus/
----
@/{{Earnest}}: Not really weird, but it made me happy. Aaron Williams, the guy behind ''{{Nodwick}}'' and ''North 40'', is [[http://ps238principal.livejournal.com/155739.html pleased that North 40]] illustrated AnimalEyeSpy.
----
A mailbag session at KirbysRainbowResort mentioned how a quote of the Ometon's popped up here.
----
[[TheSpoonyExperiment Spoony's]] rather understandable [[http://twitter.com/TheSpoonyOne/status/21453522591547392 reaction]] to his show's FetishFuel page.
----
@/{{Luc}}: Something of an odd case; we're not directly linked to, but clearly referred to, by a monster in KingdomOfLoathing's XMas event, [[http://kol.coldfront.net/thekolwiki/index.php/Tome_of_Tropes The Tome Of Tropes]].
----
@/{{G-Mon}}: We've been listed in ''Maximum PC's'' [[http://www.maximumpc.com/article/features/100_websites_see_you_die_part_1 100 Websites to See Before You Die]].
----
We're linked from the [[http://blogs.abc.net.au/canberra/2009/12/dan-browned.html website for a Canberra morning radio show]] that took the old definition of DanBrowned and made it a call-in feature
----
[[MythBusters Grant Imahara]] finally checked out his picture on AsianAndNerdy - and [[http://twitter.com/grantimahara/status/20720636411 tweeted about it]].
----
Check [[http://www.fanhistory.com/wiki/LadySybilla this]] out. It's a page on notorious ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' fanficcer Lady Sybillia, and it features a troper-written description that used to be on SmallNameBigEgo.
----
Lore Sjöberg of ''Wired'' features us [[http://www.wired.com/underwire/2010/08/alt-text-procrastinators/ here]]. The page on the screen is RidiculousProcrastinator.
----
JohnAugust appears to have discovered us and has written a [[http://johnaugust.com/archives/2010/all-of-the-other-reindeer blog post]] praising the page for AllOfTheOtherReindeer.
----
Of all the things to link to YourPrincessIsInAnotherCastle, it was [[http://failblog.org/2010/04/16/funny-signs-stickmen-in-peril-house-of-horrors/ a blog about funny signs]]?
----
@/KorKhan: [[http://www.cracked.com/funny-4796-t-shirts/ According to Cracked]], TV Tropes is the #1 source regarding [[ShirtlessScene shirtlessness]]. Make of that what you will!
----
@/Deuxhero: We are apparently the 200th most visited website on the internet... In [[http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/tvtropes.org Jamaica]].
----
@/PhoenixFire: The LA Times did an [[http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/news/la-ca-tropes28-2010feb28,0,4476148.story article about us]] on February 28th. They don't seem to have really gotten the hang of "TropesAreNotBad"...

@/ShayGuy: Better about it than most, though.
----
@/{{Ronka87}}: We've been featured again at [[http://www.cracked.com/article_18409_the-5-most-statistically-full-shit-national-stereotypes.html Cracked]], this time in an article about national stereotypes. Largest number coming in from CheeseEatingSurrenderMonkey, followed by BritishTeeth.
----
@/{{Earnest}}: This came up in a forum thread, but apparently if you Google DyingLikeAnimals, the trope page [[http://www.google.com/search?client=safari&rls=en&q=dying+like+animals&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8 is the #1 result.]]
----
@/FastEddie: Nice little bit about us [[http://www.businessinsider.com/30-best-blogs-of-2009-2010-1 in a year-ender]].
----
Tropers/{{G-Mon}}: [[http://www.cracked.com/forums/index.php?topic=60280.msg1381408;boardseen Apparently they're having a "Best of TV Tropes" topic on the Cracked.com forums.]] The first link was to ThrowItIn, but currently (Jan 1, 2010, ~4:45 PM CST) RememberWhenYouBlewUpASun is getting the most hits from them. Also, there's yet another example of TVTropesWillRuinYourLife in the third post.
----
I found something from ''BackwardCompatible'' the [[http://www.crispygamer.com/comics/backward/backward-2009-09-09.aspx 09/09/09]]. KatanasAreJustBetter!
----
Anon: This is from almost a year back, but the [[http://www.principiadiscordia.com/blog/cain/tv-tropes-has-infected-my-brain/ Principia Discordia blog]] linked us. So that's kinda cool.

[[http://chaosmarxism.blogspot.com/2009/02/im-goddamned-batman.html Um, also]]
----
@/{{Kerrah}}: BadassOfTheWeek linked us in the article for [[http://www.badassoftheweek.com/shinohara.html Hiromichi Shinohara]], released friday, 4th of December.
----
@/ShayGuy: [[http://www.zeit.de/kultur/literatur/2009-11/tv-tropes An article]] about us on the site for Die Zeit, by one Stefan Mesch.

@/{{Deuxhero}}:[[http://translate.google.com/translate?js=y&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.zeit.de%2Fkultur%2Fliteratur%2F2009-11%2Ftv-tropes&sl=de&tl=en To save the english onlys the trouble]]. Like most machine translations a little odd, but this one is understandable. The title is "Luckily not Wikipedia" or such. I like the line "Here, not literary scholars, but college students, role players, movie freaks, and genre authors write" (engrish removed as far as I can). If we could fix the engrish it could be useful for something. It also seems to feel the German version is lacking (content I hope). It also thinks we like Dan Brown on the first page, but notes that false research is "Fucked by Dan" (hehe) near the end (Is this a translation issue?).

@/Tzetze: The writer asked for some stuff on the forum here, although I don't remember the thread.

----
@/{{Katrika}}: Now we have some [[http://realwrestlecrap.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=WWE&action=display&thread=239113 wrestling forum]] linking to us for FetishFuel.
----
@/NotSoBadassLongcoat: Nov 6, 2009. Thirty seven references to {{Shotacon}} from boyloverlinks? They must be having real [[HaveAGayOldTime Gay Old Time]] there...

Tropers/{{G-Mon}}: Wow, that site's ''still'' bringing us links? Well, at least the people coming in from there [[TVTropesWillRuinYourLife won't be going back for a while]]....

@/Deuxhero:Did I just hear that site in the news? Eww.
----
@/{{Deuxhero}} We have gotten a few (highest inbound count as of posting)... [[IncrediblyLamePun links]] to AmericanKirbyIsHardcore thanks to an article on how in Spirit Tracks [[http://www.pressthebuttons.com/2009/10/american-link-is-hardcore.html American Link Is Hardcore]] and various sites linking to it and having another link in the comments.
----
@/{{Tzetze}}: [[http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/film/film-news/6274053/The-20-worst-science-and-technology-errors-in-films.html The Daily Telegraph.]] They even used the word "{{egregious}}".

@/{{Medinoc}}: ''particularly'' egregious. [[TVTropesWikiDrinkingGame That's * four* drinks!]]

@/{{Deuxhero}}:They didn't just reference us, they ''cited'' us. This should be used on TheOtherWiki's page on us.

@/SilentHunter: They have four article links in that article. I was hoping for the oddity section in ''Metro'', but the ''Daily Telegraph''. Woot!

@/{{Madrugada}} ''Six'' article links and a "Thank you to". Tres Cool.

@/{{Lemurian}} ''TEN'' article links, counting the main page-link.
----
October 7, 2009: We got a post about us on [[http://www.wow.com/2009/10/07/breakfast-topic-what-tropes-does-your-character-embody/ a prominent World of Warcraft blog]]. As of this writing, seven out of our top ten inbound links are from this post, with three more a little ways down, and a smattering of other links giving us about a couple dozen hits each on average. All in all, it's given us over ten thousand hits, out of a total of around 27,000 today.
----
@/{{Earnest}}: We're part of a T-Shirt advertising blurb in ''[[http://www.thinkgeek.com/tshirts-apparel/c36d/ Think Geek]]''. I do hope they realize that link will drive more people away from their site than in...

@/LooneyToons: You know, when advertisers quote us in their text, I think it means we're now an indispensable part of the culture...
----
September 20, 2009: Apparently, there's this thing called "Stumbleupon" that we've been put on. Oddly, the one that's getting the most inbound links is HistoryOfEnglish, with over 2000--the only other one with 1000 is ''Series/DoctorWho'', also through stumbleupon.

@/ShayGuy: SU's given us loads of links as long as I can remember. There rarely seems to be any sort of rhyme or reason as to which page it links to most.
----
September 2, 2009:

@/{{SAMAS}}: On a ''much'' more lighthearted note, the link to SpikesOfDoom from [[http://arstechnica.com/apple/reviews/2009/08/mac-os-x-10-6.ars/11 this]] article. What gets me is that is has nothing to do with tropes or movies, or games or anything. It's a review of an ''Operating System''. So it's like he just put it there [[TVTropesWillRuinYourLife to be a dick. ^_^]]
----
August 25th: {{Shotacon}} is getting hits from... "boyloverlinks". [[{{Squick}} Ewwwwwwww]]. I feel like I'm going to get arrested for clicking on that.

rsm109: Beat me to it. Ugh.

@/ShayGuy: ...More than...any other link today? This thing's sending more links than the main ''Webcomic/{{xkcd}}'' #609 and the top [=StumbleUpon=] link? Good God.

@/{{SAMAS}}: August 29, and it's ''still'' hitting links!
----
August 4th: BreastExpansion is getting tons of hits from [[http://www.process-productions.com "Process Productions"]], which is "is a website dedicated to fetish material centering on gradual changes in a woman's form."
----
July 29: Those inbound links from forums at http://crystalhall.org/chboards/ are all WhateleyUniverse readers. Like me. (I didn't post any of the links in the forums, though.)
----
July 13: http://xkcd.com/609/
It's not a direct link, but methinks we're going to see a significant spike in new users over the next while :P

@/{{Adam850}}: Now the comic image links to UniversalTropes. As of when I posted this, 22,601 inbounds were directly from Webcomic/{{xkcd}}. Many others were from referral sites referencing the comic.

@/ShayGuy: This is more than ''IrregularWebcomic'' has ever sent us, and those links are usually right at the top. How much ''has'' traffic spiked?

@/CodeMan38: Enough that the server was down for a little while this afternoon.

@/ShayGuy: And three weeks later, it's ''still'' the #1 source of inbound links. Damn.
----
June 21: http://forums.gleemax.com is linking to ItsPopularNowItSucks. This from the ''WizardsOfTheCoast'' boards?

@/calronmoonflower: I posted that link in response to the reaction to a "What if?" question of DungeonsAndDragons being the most popular pastime.
----
July 17: [[http://www.warseer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=204410 This link]] on Warseer. A 40K fansite mentioning our portrayal on the site, no big deal, right? Then I checked the thread in general, and found it was comparing us to ''[[http://www.pbsblog.com/projects/spacemarines/deathtoys.html this.]]'' Words fail me.

@/{{Earnest}}: To be fair, they do say we're more [[http://www.warseer.com/forums/showpost.php?p=3670541&postcount=97 "even handed and funny"]]... then again, compared to that site a root canal is more even handed and funny.
----
June 10th: People over at bootytorrents.com seem to like {{Transformers}}. Arrr!
----
June 4th: ''Reddit.com'' has gotten us some 400+ inbound links to YouFailEconomicsForever. They seem to have a [[http://www.reddit.com/r/Economics/comments/8pmpt/the_nice_thing_about_mathematics_and_other_hard/ large number of hard science buffs]] who snigger at "2 + 2 = 4". Hmm, maybe add that in as a hottip?
----
June 2nd: A [[http://www.stumbleupon.com/url/tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php//Math stumbleupon.com link]] has given us an assload of hits for /{{Math}}.
----
May 19th:We have been getting various links to DanBrowned (like [[http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/today/tomfeilden/2009/05/does_it_matter_about_antimatte.html here]] and [[http://io9.com/5256841/this-may-come-as-a-shock-the-anti+matter-science-in-angels--demons-is-wrong here]] (both in comments), but plenty of single hits as well) thanks a new movie based on a book of DanBrown's not doing the research.
----
May 7th: Series/TheColbertReport's [[http://www.colbertnation.com/home official website]] is linking to [[Quotes/StephenColbert Quotes/Stephen Colbert]] and requesting people add their favorite quotes.

@/FreezairForALimitedTime: Pardon the netspeaks, but: OMG. We love you, whoever decided to do this. If it's you yourself, Mr. Colbert, all the better. <3

@/ShayGuy: Noticed it on the inbound links page a couple of days ago. The page itself is only about a week old.
----
May 8th: PottyEmergency. [[http://www.wetting-forum.net/community/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=3038 Wetting-Forum.net]]. That's all I have to say.

@/LooneyToons: Geeze. A little warning about that forum, guy. If I get in trouble at work for clicking that link... <shakes head>

@/{{fleb}}: SchmuckBait, {{NSFW}} ''and'' RuleThirtyFour in action. Trifecta.
----
May 1: ''[[http://www.escapistmagazine.com/articles/view/comics/stolen-pixels/6018-Stolen-Pixels-86-Left-4-Dumb-Part-8 Stolen Pixels]]'' links to MarySue.
----
April 29: Yet another not-a-link in [[http://www.errantstory.com/comic.php?date=2009-04-29 today's Errant Story filler]], referencing TheWorfEffect.
----
April 16th: Little old, and not a link but TheNamelessMod has an abridged version of the VideoGame/DeusEx page "hidden" as a book in game [[spoiler:in an office desk in ABI]]. [[http://img524.imageshack.us/img524/5045/shot0015.png picture]]
----
April 11th: This isn't really an inbound link, but they're talking about us on /u/. Or well, flaming about us. [[http://orz.4chan.org/u/res/486442.html#487706 WARNING PORN BOARD ON 4CHAN NSFW]]
----
April '09: To make the semantic web, you needs you some [[http://www.semanticuniverse.com/blogs-mary-sue-magnificent-bastards-tv-tropes-and-spontaneous-linked-data.html TV Tropes]].

@/FalconPain: I find it significant that, on the writer's first visit to a site called "TV Tropes", he jumped to the conclusion that the site was originally designed to discuss tropes in ''anime''. Maybe the complainers have a point.

@/SilentHunter: Is that our first academic article link?
----
Wikipedia's article on "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sex_in_space Sex in space]]" has a link to [[ZeroGSpot our article on sex in space]]. In the middle of the article, not at the end where the references are. I clicked on it multiple times just to drive the count up.
----
February 2009: TanzderVampire is now the FIRST image result when you Google search "vampire". No wonder it keeps getting hits.
----
The ''Transformers'' [[http://tfwiki.net/ wiki]] now has a link to {{Narm}} in one of its page tags which indicates a corruption during software update knocked the page back to where it was last June (saying the page was "NARM'd by by the Bookworm Virus which reset Wiki/TFWikiDotNet back to June 2008"). [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Sari_Sumdac This one]], for example.
----
9th of March, -09: [[http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/linkara/at4w/5252-linkaras-take-on-watchmen Linkara mentions "Crowning Moment of Awesome"]]. No link though. :(
----
Feb. 28, 2009: [[http://chizumatic.mee.nu/indian_summer_--_into_the_abyss This Link]], which led to {{Squick}}. Notable to This Troper at least because the linker refers to this site as "The Hitchhiker's Guide To Anime". Is that a mistaken link, or...
----
Feb. 24, 2009: [[http://xkcdsucks.blogspot.com/2009/02/comic-542-bloody-hell.html It's the anti-xkcd backlash]]! And NoodleIncident is its PetPeeveTrope! I'm amused.
----
Feb. 11, 2009: Not quite an inbound link, but the wiki got a shout-out in today's [[SomethingPositive Super Stupor]]: http://www.superstupor.com/
----
Feb. 11, 2009: An article in a blog about [[http://scienceblogs.com/denialism/2009/02/the_autismvaccines_fraud.php autism and vaccines]] gave us a surprising number of links to... DickDastardlyStopsToCheat. Pardon me while I scratch my head and try to figure ''that'' one out.
----
Jan. 26, 2009: [[http://lostpedia.wikia.com/wiki/Because_You_Left Lostpedia's article on episode 5x02]] has been giving us a surprisingly steady stream of links to HitlersTimeTravelExemptionAct.
----
Jan. 21, 2009: Bruce Sterling links to the main page and KarmaHoudini in a post on his [[http://blog.wired.com/sterling/2009/01/tv-tropes-the-a.html Wired blog]].
----

Dec. 23, 2008: Apparently, OlderThanDirt and HumongousMecha are the first two Google results for "hindu mythology mecha". I find it hard to believe that we're the only ones talking about ancient Hindu robots.
----

Dec. 21, 2008: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oBPzayKtpi0 An (old) mention by a vlogger.]] Doesn't quite grasp that TropesAreNotBad, though.
----

12th of December 2008: [[http://community.livejournal.com/fanficrants/7604480.html?thread=214621440#t214621440 LiveJournalists discuss TV Tropes's addictiveness.]]
----
8th of December 2008: Ask and ye shall receive, though perhaps a tad late. [[http://www.guardian.co.uk/culture/garethmcleanblog/2008/nov/26/television-real-life The Guardian]] has a link to TV tropes just after [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/discussion.php?id=ulqluu0ny6aszsv5dxvnr74t wikipedia deleted our article]] for not being notable. Whatever. Cool article anyway.

@/ShayGuy: Uh...I don't think comments count.
----
1st of November 2008: [[http://voices.washingtonpost.com/achenblog/2007/12/luckiest_man_alive.html This]] is from a Dec 2007 article in the Washington Post, discussing then Democratic presidential candidate Kucinich being an [[UglyGuyHotWife Ugly Guy with a Hot Wife]].
----
Overall, isn't it odd when you find that an inbound link was from a google porn search (often RuleThirtyFour related)? I just find it too funny the idea of someone searching for porn, seeing the link, wondering "what's this?", and then getting ''completely'' derailed from their initial task.

@/{{Haven}}: RuleThirtyFour means that not everyone would be derailed...
----
12 October 2008: StrawmanPolitical was used as the basis of an [[http://www.sbindependent.org/node/2414 editorial piece]] in a college paper, with some flattering praise:
-->''Tvtropes.org is, in fact, one of the best things the Internet has given us humans so far - a mirror.''
----
9 September 2008: Not a link, but NintendoHard was mentioned in the 9/4/2008 edition of [=1up=].com's Retronauts podcast (at approximately 2:29:05).
----
6 August 2008: There's been a little game on [[ImageBoards 4chan's]] /co/ involving tvtropes. Given that threads in 4chan die quickly, [[http://img299.imageshack.us/my.php?image=tvtropes2ux1.jpg here's]] an image of what happened. No worries, it's perfectly worksafe.
----
10 July 2008: A conservative columnist awaits the Obama campaign JumpingTheShark, with a high reliance in the article on other Troper-ese. [[http://www.townhall.com/columnists/JohnnieBByrd/2008/07/10/will_obama_jump_the_shark link]]

@/SilentHunter: Anything legal that gets us more traffic, I guess... provided it doesn't cause flame wars.


* Also, [[http://www.dsa4forum.de/viewtopic.php?p=707415 This link]], about a third of the way down the page, where a post is made entirely of trope links.

3 June 2008: Why, I wondered, was TanzDerVampire, an Austrian musical (a bit outside our usual range of popularity), tenth on the BigHitters list? Almost certainly because it's fourth for "vampire" on Google Images search. More impressively, the picture has only been up for around half the lifetime of the list.

21 May 2008: Some dude on a Spanish {{Pokemon}} forum posted something like half the damn index up in a thread. I don't speak spanish so I can't read what they're saying, but the sheer amount of time that must have taken is praiseworthy ina dn of itself.

@/{{Sikon}}: Indeed.

@/{{Rogue 7}}: I was slanted to play in that game (It's actually a homebrew using tropes for mechanics), but some real life issues for the DM came up, apparently, and the game's pretty much dead right now. I'll report back if it sparks up again. And incidentally, Giant In the Playground was how I found this site (and I'm pretty sure that's true for a lot of people)

@/ShayGuy: Uh...linkage plz?

@/SilentHunter: Not that weird, considering we reference them here.

----
20-AUG-07:@/{{Seth}}:Is anyone else worried we get more hits for BrotherSisterIncest and {{Lolicon}} off google than almost anything else?

@/FastEddie: Used to be. Analyzed it and saw that the host-addresses that come in on those searches take one look and head off. The subject matter is dealt with here in ways that are not interesting to pervs.

@/{{Shale}}: Still, the sheer number of people who search for that, especially relative to every other topic addressed on the site, is rather depressing. Stupid Internet.

@/TravisWells: It's not that surprising. I run [[http://rapidsearch.yi.org a link search site]] and [[http://macrochan.org an image macro site]] and "loli" or "lolicon" is always in the top referrals and search query lists. For the linksearch it make sense, but for the image macro it's a bit weirder. Why do they want [[http://macrochan.org/get.py?sha1=H5UDL6JXI3UQKYNVTNNIBAEN6CCS5XIO pictures which are mainly making fun of them]]?

'''@/KhymChanur''': Well, you also have to consider what rank the wiki gets for certain search terms: if it gets a low ranking, then not that many of the people searching for that term will go through enough pages of search results to get to our listing, but if it gets a high ranking then a very large percentage of the people who search for that term will click through to the wiki. For example, the term "lolicon" just by itslef ranks the wiki's {{Lolicon}} page as #31 at Google, but MagicalGirl isn't in the first 270 hits for Google, so anyone interested in lolicon will check out our page, but people interested in magical girls will have had their fill of magical girl pages before they find us. Also, we come in #29 for the phrase "brother sister incest", #5 for the word combination "incest brother" and #1 for "incest tv" (though only #151 for "incest sister", and that's the discussion page).

(Oh, and the latest lolicon search hit from google was me, while I was gathering statistics)

1-DEC-06: Anybody have any idea what Matrim is saying about us [[http://www.shadowdance.info/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2041 here]]?

@/Tulling: The language appears to be bulgarian. клишета would be cliche and забавен is similar to a russian (I studied the language) word for funny or entertaining. It seems he finds reading about anime tropes entertaining. Using an online dictionary it seems like he says it also contains that which you find everywhere like DramaticWind and that (ie those tropes) which you do not often see. At least, that is my educated guess.

@/{{Gus}}: Thanks, Tulling. Okay. He likes us. He gets to live.

@/SusanDavis: If it's the same Matrim that I'm thinking of (the link seems to hang for me), she's a she, not a he. I did post a couple of links to here on a forum where the Matrim that I know hangs out.

Like most machine translations a little odd, but this one is understandable. The title is "Luckily not Wikipedia" or such. I like the line "Here, not literary scholars, but college students, role players, movie freaks, and genre authors write" (engrish removed as far as I can). If we could fix the engrish it could be useful for something. It also seems to feel the German version is lacking (content I hope). It also thinks we like Dan Brown on the first page, but notes that false research is "Fucked by Dan" (hehe) near the end (Is this a translation issue?).

@/Tzetze: The writer asked for some stuff on the forum here, although I don't remember the thread.

@/{{Adam850}}: Now the comic image links to UniversalTropes. As of when I posted this, 22,601 inbounds were directly from Webcomic/{{xkcd}}. Many others were from referral sites referencing the comic.

July 17: [[http://www.warseer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=204410 This link]] on Warseer. A 40K fansite mentioning our portrayal on the site, no big deal, right? Then I checked the thread in general, and found it was comparing us to ''[[http://www.pbsblog.com/projects/spacemarines/deathtoys.html this.]]'' Words fail me.

@/{{Earnest}}: To be fair, they do say we're more [[http://www.warseer.com/forums/showpost.php?p=3670541&postcount=97 "even handed and funny"]]... then again, compared to that site a root canal is more even handed and funny.

@/FalconPain: I find it significant that, on the writer's first visit to a site called "TV Tropes", he jumped to the conclusion that the site was originally designed to discuss tropes in ''anime''. Maybe the complainers have a point.

@/SilentHunter: Is that our first academic article link?

Wikipedia's article on "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sex_in_space Sex in space]]" has a link to [[ZeroGSpot our article on sex in space]]. In the middle of the article, not at the end where the references are. I clicked on it multiple times just to drive the count up.

Overall, isn't it odd when you find that an inbound link was from a google porn search (often RuleThirtyFour related)? I just find it too funny the idea of someone searching for porn, seeing the link, wondering "what's this?", and then getting ''completely'' derailed from their initial task.

@/{{Haven}}: RuleThirtyFour means that not everyone would be derailed...

12 October 2008: StrawmanPolitical was used as the basis of an [[http://www.sbindependent.org/node/2414 editorial piece]] in a college paper, with some flattering praise:

10 July 2008: A conservative columnist awaits the Obama campaign JumpingTheShark, with a high reliance in the article on other Troper-ese. [[http://www.townhall.com/columnists/JohnnieBByrd/2008/07/10/will_obama_jump_the_shark link]]

@/SilentHunter: Anything legal that gets us more traffic, I guess... provided it doesn't cause flame wars.


* Also, [[http://www.dsa4forum.de/viewtopic.php?p=707415 This link]], about a third of the way down the page, where a post is made entirely of trope links.
** ...I don't know enough German to understand that. Given what it's linking to, do I ''want'' to?
*** A quick run through Babelfish seems to indicate they're discussing the Amazons of either Greek myth or a roleplaying game.

13 June 2008: [[http://news.toonzone.net/article.php?ID=24355 Toon Zone]] decided to link to EarthShatteringKaboom for the last example in their top 5 Takedowns. They even apologized for it really being a Planet X Shattering Kaboom. How thoughtful!
----
3 June 2008: Why, I wondered, was TanzDerVampire, an Austrian musical (a bit outside our usual range of popularity), tenth on the BigHitters list? Almost certainly because it's fourth for "vampire" on Google Images search. More impressively, the picture has only been up for around half the lifetime of the list.
----
2 JUN 08: Or, possibly, coolest link of the day: [[http://boards.gamefaqs.com/gfaqs/genmessage.php?board=203&topic=43432085 This forum]].

21 May 2008: Some dude on a Spanish {{Pokemon}} forum posted something like half the damn index up in a thread. I don't speak spanish so I can't read what they're saying, but the sheer amount of time that must have taken is praiseworthy ina dn of itself.

@/{{fleb}}: Uh, probably too late to ask, but... link?

14 May 2008: Some of the Google search strings are slightly worrying. Especially for BrotherSisterIncest and two directly related to the latest entry to SexySchoolwoman.

@/{{Tanto}}: I refer you to the August 20th discussion...

@/LooneyToons: And now there are ''no'' Google entries at all in the Inbound Links...?

@/FastEddie: Recently changed so that the default is "hide searches". Press the button to show them.

8 May 2008: The homepage has finally re-overtaken VideogameTropes on the Big Hitters list. Huzzahs are in order!
----
4 May 2008: Some people on the [[Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick Giant in the Playground forums]] (where this site is fairly well known) are actually using the TropePantheons page to make a trope-based RPG. Awesome.

@/{{Sikon}}: Indeed.

@/{{Rogue 7}}: I was slanted to play in that game (It's actually a homebrew using tropes for mechanics), but some real life issues for the DM came up, apparently, and the game's pretty much dead right now. I'll report back if it sparks up again. And incidentally, Giant In the Playground was how I found this site (and I'm pretty sure that's true for a lot of people)

@/ShayGuy: Uh...linkage plz?

@/{{Rogue 7}}: [[http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=75973 And There you go.]] It never really got off the ground much, but please report back any results.

29 March 2008: TheOtherWiki has apparently found us [[Administrivia/ThereIsNoSuchThingAsNotability notable]] enough to [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TV_Tropes_Wiki list us]]. At least two tropers find this ironic. A request has been for anybody who can to help out.
----
13 February 2008: Some guy is using us to mock game developer Rareware at one of their [[http://www.rareware.com/extras/scribes/20dec07/index.html online Q&A sessions]]. While I'll certainly concede that Rare deserves any and all mocking they receive, still...

19 January 2008: JohnCWright, famed eccentric SF/fantasy author and evangelican Christian, [[http://johncwright.livejournal.com/142776.html goes on at length]] about why CrystalDragonJesus Just Bugs Him.

19 December 2007: Stm177: [[http://corner.nationalreview.com/post/?q=YjYyNGQxNTg0ZjA4MjcyZWRmOThkMmYzNWMyN2NjZDk= The Corner]] -- the conservative group political blog of the US magazine National Review

@/FastEddie: Hah! I was just coming here to note that! Of all the MSM-attached blogs in the world, you had to come in from that this one.

----
19 October 2007: @/{{Sikon}}: [[http://www.irregularwebcomic.net/1718.html Irregular Webcomic]]!

@/SilentHunter: Not that weird, considering we reference them here.

----
20-AUG-07:@/{{Seth}}:Is anyone else worried we get more hits for BrotherSisterIncest and {{Lolicon}} off google than almost anything else?

@/FastEddie: Used to be. Analyzed it and saw that the host-addresses that come in on those searches take one look and head off. The subject matter is dealt with here in ways that are not interesting to pervs.

@/{{Shale}}: Still, the sheer number of people who search for that, especially relative to every other topic addressed on the site, is rather depressing. Stupid Internet.

@/TravisWells: It's not that surprising. I run [[http://rapidsearch.yi.org a link search site]] and [[http://macrochan.org an image macro site]] and "loli" or "lolicon" is always in the top referrals and search query lists. For the linksearch it make sense, but for the image macro it's a bit weirder. Why do they want [[http://macrochan.org/get.py?sha1=H5UDL6JXI3UQKYNVTNNIBAEN6CCS5XIO pictures which are mainly making fun of them]]?

'''@/KhymChanur''': Well, you also have to consider what rank the wiki gets for certain search terms: if it gets a low ranking, then not that many of the people searching for that term will go through enough pages of search results to get to our listing, but if it gets a high ranking then a very large percentage of the people who search for that term will click through to the wiki. For example, the term "lolicon" just by itslef ranks the wiki's {{Lolicon}} page as #31 at Google, but MagicalGirl isn't in the first 270 hits for Google, so anyone interested in lolicon will check out our page, but people interested in magical girls will have had their fill of magical girl pages before they find us. Also, we come in #29 for the phrase "brother sister incest", #5 for the word combination "incest brother" and #1 for "incest tv" (though only #151 for "incest sister", and that's the discussion page).

(Oh, and the latest lolicon search hit from google was me, while I was gathering statistics)
----
1-DEC-06: Anybody have any idea what Matrim is saying about us [[http://www.shadowdance.info/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2041 here]]?

@/Tulling: The language appears to be bulgarian. клишета would be cliche and забавен is similar to a russian (I studied the language) word for funny or entertaining. It seems he finds reading about anime tropes entertaining. Using an online dictionary it seems like he says it also contains that which you find everywhere like DramaticWind and that (ie those tropes) which you do not often see. At least, that is my educated guess.

@/{{Gus}}: Thanks, Tulling. Okay. He likes us. He gets to live.

@/SusanDavis: If it's the same Matrim that I'm thinking of (the link seems to hang for me), she's a she, not a he. I did post a couple of links to here on a forum where the Matrim that I know hangs out.
----
19-May-06: Not really a "weirdest" entry. The following links are way off the norm for sheer numbers of inbound hits:
* [[http://www.lastplanetojakarta.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=3537&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=1375 This LJ]] is generating thousands of hits on TheWoobie.
* This [[http://dcmstudiosonlinenews.blogspot.com/ sorta disturbed artist]] has sent over ten thousand hits to IdiotBall
* This [[http://nekketsu.wordpress.com/2006/05/14/anime-genres/ person]] likes us. As do about 5,000 people who read the site.
* This just in: A [[http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&safe=off&q=evil++idioms&btnG=Search google term search]] for "evil idioms" just blew up, with an an outstanding number of hits to SortingAlgorithmOfEvil. The term is #3 in the google results and we are getting ''pounded''.
* Holy Carp! This guy: [[http://kfmonkey.blogspot.com/2005/11/writing-tv-jargon-preservation-index.html link]] has some great stuff in his Jargon items. It is like ScriptSpeak on steroids.
** Weird how part 2 seems to have a completely different definition of SchmuckBait than ours; something partway between FailureIsTheOnlyOption and ForegoneConclusion. --DocumentN
----
30 Jan: We are still getting major hits from [[http://ptj-tsubasa.livejournal.com/?skip=20 this guy]]. Evidentally he is some kind of Finnish Web-hero.
