Heads up! This blog post hasn't been updated in over 2 years. CodePen is an ever changing place, so if this post references features, you're probably better off checking the docs. Get in touch with support if you have further questions.

Early this week, we crossed the Seven Million mark for unique Pens created on CodePen!

With that big number in mind, we thought it would be fun to share the top 3 Pens by views on CodePen.

Pens with over 1 million views get a little bit of flair on their details page, ’cause they deserve it!
