Need some fresh ideas for content on your Extension website? You’re not alone! As part of our bi-monthly series “Hottest Extension Topics,” we’re here to give you some topics that have traditionally performed well in November and December!

If we look back at the last few years of traffic (for all of our sites), these were the pages and posts that consistently drew the most traffic during the last two months of the year (or were written during those months and became popular later). While some posts are no longer published, many still are and continue to thrive even years after being written.

Posts and Topics Popular in November and December

No Longer Published, But Historically Popular in November/December

  • Horse Comfort During Cold Weather
  • Why Is It Important to Prune Fruit Trees?
  • Pecans Falling Way Too Soon, What to Do
  • Great Evergreens for Screens and Hedges
  • Preserving Pumpkins and Gourds Properly

The overwhelming trend here is not much of a surprise. There’s an increased interest in Holiday-related content (Mistletoe and Evergreens), the usual interest in landscape problems (for this time of year), and of course winterization and rotation.
