[Research] Get data on page actions usage
Open, NormalPublic

Description

What's requested:
We would like to understand the relative frequency of usage (i.e. clickthrough rate per desktop pageview) of the following page actions:

  • What links here
  • Related changes
  • Permanent link
  • Page information
  • Wikidata item
  • Cite this page
  • Create a book
  • Download as PDF
  • Printable version (see also T167237#3402915 - corresponding to very roughly 0.15 - 0.2% clickthrough rate on desktop)
  • In other projects links (if possible)
  • Move

Why it's requested:
The data will inform the order of the page actions in the new AMC page actions menu:

When it's requested:
Ideally we would have the data before we're ready to ship the feature (assuming the order of the menu items is trivial to change, therefore we wouldn't need the data before we begin work in the feature).

Other helpful information:
[From @Tbayer on Slack}

clicks on these are are all registered in the webrequest logs, so not very difficult, with the possible exception of the sister project links. (And apart from a general concern right now about the validity of our referrer data, which also holds up finalizing the action=history analysis @phuedx and i did at All Hands - i actually spent some time looking into that that yesterday, should have a ticket later today and get input from people to better understand how much of a problem it is.)

@phuedx @ovasileva I lost site of this task, then in the process of discussing T222630 remembered it. My apologies. Could we get this prioritized by any chance?

Prioritizing now, but I'm assuming that this time we need it for next year's annual plan?

@ovasileva I was thinking in the case that we find some extreme results (e.g. one or two of the items are used way more frequently than the others) we could make an update before pushing AMC out more broadly. I checked with @pmiazga and the menu items are easy to re-order. Though I'm also fine with that being out of scope for AMC.
