location data?[edit]

Hello Henrik, Great stuff here! I was wondering if it's possible to capture any other data off the page views, for instance where they are coming from? Either a base location for the user or a general country-level location for the ip or something.

Thanks, (talk) 13:02, 21 April 2015 (UTC)Seth

Dear Seth, no, it's not possible. I added a What about referrers and locations? FAQ entry with more information. --Nemo 07:29, 13 May 2015 (UTC)

mistake in traffic stats[edit]


I found a mistake in the traffic stats:

Line 268 with

" line1 = [['2008-06-21 10 AM'" etc.

has the date "['2008-06-31 10 AM', 141" which is supposed to be July 1st and therefore not in this month statistic. July 1st is missing in the stats for July, though.

The problem occurs only for year 2008, but for every other statistic i´ve seen as well.

Question on statistics[edit]

Is counted in the statistics also the creator of the article? It would be easier for the user to understand when his views are not counted. Greeting Petrus3743 --Petrus3743 (talk) 21:20, 26 April 2015 (UTC)

The stats count every "hit." That is, every time someone hits a button that leads to the article, even if the article does not yet exist. Yes, that includes the creator. That's not to say there aren't backdoors, such as redirect pages. Redirects have their own stats. I'm not sure about others, like piped links directly to a certain section.

Dear Henrik,

The page view statistics for May 9, 2015 are missing. MC Potbelly (talk) 11:36, 12 May 2015 (UTC)Anthony Oertel

Hi, any update on the missing 9 May 2015 data? Will it be corrected?--Wolbo (talk) 14:58, 21 May 2015 (UTC)
Now, May 9, 24 and 25 are missing.--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 05:35, 26 May 2015 (UTC)
I did email Henrik earlier today about this. Not expecting a direct reply to the email. However, I also see no stats for the missing days. — Maile (talk) 18:37, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

High-five for the Wikipedia article traffic statistics tool[edit]

Hey Henrik, wanted to send a big hug from here for this fabulous tool called "Wikipedia article traffic statistics" that you have built. It helps me so much to keep track of articles I edit on Wikipedia and coordinating work of others I touchbase in outreach. However, this tool does not list the Oriya language. Could you please add this to the tool so many like me will be benefited? --Psubhashish (talk) 12:43, 19 May 2015 (UTC)


Hi Henrik. I was wondering, when would be updated with the March 2015 data ? (I hope that I am sending this message to the right person) WikiJunkie (talk) 19:50, 20 May 2015 (UTC)
