Not to mention, Puppy has been releasing on new versions on a regular basis (monthly, from a quick glance on DistroWatch using the news filter) and recently made a release. On top of that, DistroWatch themselves ran a story/review... so duh, obviously it's going to get more page hits at their site.

Face it, the more often a distro puts out a new version, the more often DistroWatch puts it on its front page, the more often it's listed in DistroWatch Weekly, the more often that distro's page gets visited. More news means more visibility, and therefore more clicks. People like news, it interests them... simple. It's human nature.
