Wikipedia article traffic statistics
Q: What does the stats measure?
A: Page views.
Q: Where does the data come from?
A: Domas Mituzas
put together a
system to gather access statistics from wikipedia's squid cluster and
publishes it here
. This site
is a mere visualizer of that data.
Q: What is the logic for redirects and when a page gets moved
do the stats move?
A: It counts the title the page was accessed under, so
redirects and moves will unfortunately split the statistics across two
different statistics pages.
Q:Is the data reliable?
A: It is easily susceptible to deliberate attacks and
manipulations, but for most articles it should give a fair view of the
number of views. I wouldn't base any important decisions on these
Q:I have another question or comment!
