Super User does not have the huge traffic Stack Overflow has, but this week a question got 243k views in just 3 days. However: even though this question right now still gets 500 views per hour, the "Most viewed" list in the 10k tools does not show that in the stats for today, and nor did it yesterday when still at 2,000 views per hour:

Statistics for most viewed today

Likewise: not for the last 2 days. Only when looking at 7 days or more, one gets to see it:

Statistics for most viewed last 7 days

This makes me wonder about the other entries in the list. (And how we could validate that. The question was originally migrated from Stack Overflow, but I doubt that matters.)


I think I'm going to add some subtitles to that screen; but to explain: the key here is that the date-filter is on the creation date - so the "today" view there is "posts created today, by highest view-count". That post was created on the 10th.

  • Amai, somehow I feel stupid for not even thinking about that! :-) (But the new subtitles are nice, thanks.) – Arjan Jan 17 '11 at 10:12
  • Ugh. Could you please move these descriptions to a tooltip or something? After the major changes on that page, it's even more cluttered now. :( – Jon Seigel Jan 17 '11 at 18:08
