The Ten Most Popular Lifehacker Australia Posts Of All Time

Lifehacker Australia is celebrating its tenth anniversary this year. Since 2007, we’ve dispensed tens of thousands of tips, guides and life hacks on every conceivable topic – from setting up a VPN to nude selfie-taking. To commemorate our tenth birthday, here are the ten most popular Lifehacker Australia articles of all time…

According to Google Analytics data, the following ten stories are the most popular in Lifehacker Australia’s history. Some were viral sensations on social media while others slowly accumulated a boatload of traffic through Google search. Naturally, older stories tend to do well simply by virtue of being around longer to amass traffic.

Note: We’ve omitted international content to focus on the issues local readers cared about most. For the sake of variety, we’ve also limited certain topics to one post only. (Our Census 2016 coverage, for example, garnered multiple entries in the top 10.)

Without further ado, here are the top ten most popular Lifehacker Australia posts ever: click on the headlines to go to each story!
