Find out how popular is a Wikipedia article

how popular is a Wikipedia article
I have been reading Wikipedia article(s) almost everyday and was eager to find out how popular is somebody on Wikipedia.

We can compare Wikipedia articles (pages) of artists, actors, actresses, politician, famous personality etc. to find out which one is most popular on Wikipedia.

For Example:
Is Narendra Modi more popular than Rahul Ghandhi?
Is Salman Khan more popular than Shahrukh Khan?

Find out how popular is a Wikipedia article?

1. Access the Wikipedia article for which you want to see the usages (popularity, pageviews), example: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amitabh_Bachchan

2. Now click 'Page Information' link under Toolbox section in left pane.

Note: If Toolbox is not expanded already than click icon next to it to expand it.

3. Now scroll down and click 'Page view statistics' link under External tools at the bottom of the page.

This will redirect you to http://stats.grok.se URL, and if you are in office, you may get error: Web Page Blocked!

Click here to fix Web Page Blocked error.

4. Please see attached screenshot and extracted text from grok.se site.

"Wikipedia article traffic statistics
 Amitabh_Bachchan has been viewed 251052 times in the last 30 days. This article ranked 1659 in traffic on en.wikipedia.org."

- From Qrok.se site you can check previous (old) pageview history of a article.
- You can directly access "stats.grok.se" site and access pageviews as well.
