Just a suggestion.
We have now hits for pageviews on matomo on our new and shinny techblog.
The way urls are shaped there are three levels of directories before you get to the actual content. Example:
A url structure like the following would be better suited for absolute ranking of pageviews per blogpost (dates removed):
With the date structure included, to be clear, it is also possible to intercompare blogposts but just not as easy or obvious as pageviews will be counted for the intermediate levels 2020, 2020/03, 2020/03/26 and so forth and those are probably not that helpful.
