Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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 tried to find similar question on meta, but without result.

I want to know which questions I answered are most popular to improve them and make them more helpful for new viewers.

I remember seeing a query for this in the data explorer. I'll see if I can find it. – Mysticial Mar 7 '13 at 7:10
This is tough, not sure it can be done with the current Advanced Search options. The views:xxx option overrides the is:answer option (and that still wouldn't get you there). – Lance Roberts Mar 7 '13 at 7:11

Found it.

Although it's not perfect, here is the query:

This lists your answers in descending order of "most helpful" as defined by:

(views on question) / (# of answers)

Which can be significantly skewed by lot of answers. But you can fork the query to remove that factor.

A better query would be to weight it based on the score of your answer to the rest of the answers. There's lots of room to play around. Enjoy!
(I'd do this myself if I could. But I suck at SQL.)
