As found in Wikipedia's live database on August 21st 2011, these are the most-referenced articles by incoming internal links. Only links from articles are counted.

Articles which are linked to from many places generally cover important topics. They are likely to be read often and therefore should be of the highest quality. It may also be the case that such a popular article covers too broad a topic and could benefit from being split into several more concise entries.

Suggestions for using this information[edit]

  • Track changes in rank.
  • Which are featured articles?
  • Which have no counterpart in any given foreign-language Wikipedia?
  • Which are popular only because of User:Rambot-created articles?
  • Which of these are redirects? Should they be bypassed?
  • Which of these are flagged for some kind of cleanup?

How to update[edit]
