What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 128 Stack Exchange communities.

I think it would be useful to expose some data on either:

  • View Rates (views/day, confined to say the last 3 months)
  • Redirects from google

...for individual questions.

These are sort of "hidden" statistics that should influence how much editorial attention a question gets. Just because a question doesn't have any activity recently doesn't mean it's not being read a whole lot.

How many questions do we have that are frequently viewed that could still be cleaned up and improved?

Is it possible to add a view to the toolbox that shows "High views in past month" for questions that were asked outside that timeframe (i.e. older than a month), or something similar for google redirects?

The anonymous user feedback might be a way to get some of the information you're looking for already. For example, on Stack Overflow. –  Cody Gray Aug 15 '11 at 13:01

@ChrisF - It's similar but I'm worried more about rates than absolute counts. I think it's possible/likely there are questions that get a steady 20 views a week that aren't high enough to show up on reports but still get a lot of exposure, and aren't getting editing attention. –  JNK Aug 15 '11 at 13:21
