One of my Arqade Questions has an insane whopping 323K views - more than many of the top-voted questions of the site.

I doubt that it's the highest-viewed question on the site itself, but I'd like to see how it stacks up against the other questions.

Is there any way to see a site's questions ranked by number of views? I would like to see how many questions are higher-ranked in view count than mine, and by how many views they outrank my own question.

  • @nicael While I'm looking for something that is in SE itself rather than a query on SE info, that is the data I'm looking for, and I'd gladly upvote such a comment as an answer.

    @ᔕᖺᘎᕊ That's a good sort (the question that THAT question is a duplicate of) but it doesn't provide the actual view count of the questions that it returns - which is what I'm really looking for. I much prefer the results nicael provided.

    @Zibbobz: It seems nicael is not in a position to post an answer. You should probably post the answer yourself. May 15, 2015 at 20:01

As @nicael suggested, the SE Data Explorer can be used to create a query that will return a result set with this information. The query to use is:

select top 500 id as [Post Link], ViewCount

from posts

order by ViewCount desc

Which will return a list of the top 500 highest-viewed questions. From there, you can choose any SE site you wish to query for your results.
