Forums: Village pump → Wowpedia site stats

Hello everyone! Yesterday evening, thanks to Pcj, I could access some fresh data about the site: the amount of daily, weekly and monthly unique visitors, and the list of the pages with the most views. So here are the numbers!

Unique visitors:

  • Daily: about 45.000
  • Weekly: about 270.000
  • Monthly: about 1.010.000

Honestly, I was surprised at the amount. I was expecting a few thousands at best! This really gives me motivation to continue working further.

Now, about the most viewed pages, in order:

All of these pages are lore-related, indicating there is still a very strong interest in the lore of Warcraft, and it seems people are really interested into learning more about the characters of the "A Thousand Years of War" story. I say this because while Turalyon and Alleria appear in-game, Argus the Unmaker doesn't yet, so people looking about him must have read the story. Illidan Stormrage is already pretty well known by the majority of the fanbase, so people are not as much interested into his background.

Finally, this may not be a surprise to those of you who already follow my talk page, but I've been exchanging some mails with Blizzard lately and here is what Matt Burns has to say to the wowpedians:

"Also, I just wanted to say THANK YOU for all the work you and others do on the wowpedia site. I’m in awe of how much information you guys have to juggle!"

So, millions of people are still interested into reading Warcraft lore, and Blizzard-sempai has noticed us ;) Not bad, uh? And the next expansion pack isn't even announced yet! Let's keep wowpedia strong for a long time more! Xporc (talk) 09:16, 27 September 2017 (UTC)

Senpai has noticed us way back in the day, from the conversation I had back in 2008 at the Blizzard Worldwide Invitational with some staff (including creative development teammembers). But keeping it up is the hard part ,)--KIROCHI) 21:51, 27 September 2017 (UTC)
I know I haven't been the most active here lately, but this is uplifting news nonetheless. -- IconSmall TrollDeathKnight Male.gif DeludedTroll (talkcontribs) 13:22, 28 September 2017 (UTC)

I honestly didn't expect a million unique visitors per month. Thanks for the data. -- MyMindWontQuiet 13:17, 3 October 2017 (UTC)
