Chanced upon this site that roughly checks traffic statistics for Wikipedia.
The importance of this tool checker is that we get an idea how popular a page is to be able to rank number one in the Google search page. With that, we also get an idea how many visitors- more or less that we need for our own sites (depending on our niche or popularity) to be number 1 in Google search.
For example, the Wiki page for “gravity” appears number one on the Google search. In the statistics checker, the said article “gravity” has been viewed 115447 in February 2008. Views through out the month ranges between 2,300 to 5,000 views per day.
The checker is still on beta and of course carries a disclaimer that it is prone to manipulation and or attack so we shouldn’t “base any important decisions on these stats,” according to the independent site.
Never mind if it’s inaccurate or inconclusive (for now?), use the checker for fun and general information. It doesn’t hurt to know a few stats on important keywords in Wikipedia translating into rankings in Google search.
