Have you ever wondered what people read about on Wikipedia? Are you curious about what articles are the most popular?
It is now possible to see how many page views an article has had in a certain month at the Wikipedia article traffic statistics site. The site also shows a “Top 1000” articles per month as well as a graph of daily page views for an article.
Although the stats are susceptible to manipulation, it still can give a good insight into what people are viewing and searching for over time.
I would like be able to chart how the volume changes over longer periods of time but getting access to this data in an accessible format is cool in of itself.
