Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I wrote a quick query to find out the most viewed question on the electronics SE but the views are different. For example here:

Good Tools for Drawing Schematics | 9876

While if you visit the question it says it has:

VIEWED 10018 TIMES

So why is there a difference? Here is the query.

The data in the data explorer is not real-time.

It gets updated weekly, so you can expect such a discrepancy.
