If you’re interested in how much traffic your article on Wikipedia is receiving, or what the most popular topics are on Wikipedia, visit the Wikipedia Article Traffic Statistic site. It’s very simple to use: choose your language, the year and month and a keyword and ‘go.’

Here some sample searches:

– Views of Google+ article in July 2011
– Views of 405 freeway article in July 2011
– Views of Harry Potter article in July 2011

Spelling makes a difference: when you use harrypotter instead of Harry Potter, the statistics are different, even though the article is the same.

The site states that it “is very much a beta service and may disappear or change at any time.”
