Welcome to the Pageviews Analysis feedback forum

This is the forum to provide feature requests, bug reports, and general feedback for the Pageviews Analysis suite of tools.

Some key notes when making a post:


Mediaviews analysis on toolforgeEdit

The wikimedia file information page offers a mediaviews analysis on toolforge. This video constantly gets over a 1.000 requests every day. The wikipedia pages, where the video is embedded, are accessed much less often. How does this tool count? Presseteam Uni Innsbruck (talk) 07:41, 22 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Presseteam Uni Innsbruck It counts actual plays, and not simply views to a page that has the video on it (such as a Wikipedia article or the File page on Commons). wikitech:Analytics/Data Lake/Traffic/Mediacounts has more information on this metric.

Thanks for the ref! Presseteam Uni Innsbruck (talk) 09:22, 18 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

[Bug] Error queryEdit

If, i wanna see the statistic for the page, so i see the error, but if I look the RAW API (, so the none error. Dušan Kreheľ (talk) 12:37, 20 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Inconsistent values for pageEdit

I am collecting pageviews data for different endangered species through Wikimedia's REST API and came to the Pageviews Analysis site to double check the results I was getting. I am using Google Chrome Version 111.0.5563.65

Searching for the monthly pageviews from 2016-2020 for the scientific name of tiger, Panthera tigris, returns the peak around May-Jul 2016 around 4,000+ views. I have marked to include redirects in settings and the search query.

However, when I search for Tiger, there is a peak of 700,000 views in Mar 2020.

These should show the same result no? Since Panthera tigris redirects to Tiger. Most significantly, however, is that when you search the terms together, suddenly Panthera tigris is returning nearly the same amount of page views and peaks as Tiger, that it did not previously.

What is the reason for this difference? I could understand the fact that Panthera tigris and Tiger are technically two different pages, one of which results in a redirect to Tiger, but why is it that when they are queried together, they are the same? This seems to point to inconsistencies in the data, or in the ways in which it is being visualized.

if u wanna the original log data of pageviews, so You use the or in DKMF for year 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020. Dušan Kreheľ (talk) 21:28, 29 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Reddalisa See The pageviews pipeline will register the pageview for the redirect and not the target page, which (as odd as it may sound) is expected behaviour. The reason why they look similar if you compare side by side is probably because you have the "Include redirects" option enabled at the bottom-left. Here are the results with that option disabled, and as you can see the redirect has significantly fewer pageviews. Hope this helps, MusikAnimal (WMF) (talk) 20:09, 11 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Reddalisa: From pageviews logs, so example, if sk:Krehel is the redirect on sk:Kreheľ, so:
User pageviews in year 2022 (source)
Krehel Kreheľ
2 139

Добрый день, у меня каждая новая статья больше не появляется в списке статей на странице Анализ статей постоянно пишет Произошла ошибка во время обработки pageviews api - not found что я делаю не так? ссылка на страницу Genamb (talk) 16:39, 16 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Genamb: For the current UTC day, the data will be released when it ends. Dušan Kreheľ (talk) 17:11, 16 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Genamb В данном случае это означает, что за указанный диапазон дат не было просмотров страниц. Мне нужно исправить это, чтобы он показывал нули вместо ошибки. К сожалению, исправить это не так просто, как может показаться. Извините за путаницу! MusikAnimal (WMF) (talk) 04:14, 20 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@MusikAnimal (WMF): He wanted pageviews for the currently created page. From that point of view, I think it should remain as it is. The day is not over yet, we have no statistics. So the mistake is ok. Dušan Kreheľ (talk) 08:10, 20 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Link to clickstream data?Edit

I find WikiNav to be a very complementary tool to pageviews analysis. Would it be possible to put a link to WikiNav somewhere on the pageviews analysis page as a kind of "see also"? {{u|Sdkb}}talk 04:15, 22 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Userviews Analysis: missing pageEdit

Hallo! My Userviews-Analysis page for itwiki should also list the article it:Ahmad Mamduhi, because I am the initiator and hitherto only contributor of that article. (Reply in: de, en, eo, es, it) — Super nabla (talk) 08:09, 26 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Super nabla you created this article just yesterday, it seems like page view data from May 24 onwards is not yet available. Johannnes89 (talk) 11:37, 26 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  Comment Alright, thanks @Johannnes89. — Super nabla (talk) 11:43, 26 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
