Is it possible to do a list of SE sites sorted by the highest appearance of questions with a given tag? for example [markdown]?

Something like:

StackOverflow 3970 questions
TeX 119 questions

I was thinking about running a script looping on all sites:

for site in ['tex', 'math', 'meta', ...]
   open URL '<site>.stackexchange.com/questions/tagged/markdown'
   get the number "xxx questions tagged"

but I can imagine there's a more clever solution?

  • I assume you can craft something from those SEDE queries: user reputation accross sites and Q by tag – Tensibai Sep 26 '17 at 13:57
  • A first draft here, I was unable to use a variable for the tag, so you'll have to edit the query and then order the resulting table. – Tensibai Sep 26 '17 at 14:21

I've been using (for a lot of multi-site queries) a SEDE query template by @rene for a while now, which does exactly that. This is the SEDE query you're looking for: is used the most on Stack Overflow.

enter image description here

I should probably remove the tagname column, because it's irrelevant and links to the site the query is executed on; the first column contains a direct link to the tag on that specific site.

Note that SEDE is updated once a week, on Sunday morning, so the results might be a bit stale, but overall it gives a good impression.
