What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 149 Stack Exchange communities.

Sometimes when I browse older questions I find questions that are clearly off topic for StackOverflow and should be migrated.

So I vote close - off-topic on the question. But the problem is the question was asked one year ago has totally 100 views. This means that the question will not get 5 close votes for ages.

Do the question I voted "off-topic" get more attention by e.g. moderators or 10k users, so it makes sense for me to vote "off-topic"? or should I flag the question for moderator attention instead?

We have tools where we can see recent off-topic (and other close) flags, so yes; it is useful to do that. There will be lots of different cases of old questions/answers that will eventually be moderated in some way due to refining of the focus of the sites over time.
