Statistics on image clicks from Wikipedia articles across time
Open, MediumPublic


From the parent task: […] last month, the tech department did some analysis on Wikipedia content and announced this: "By analyzing webrequest logs for english, spanish, arabic and french Wikipedia, we found that when readers visit a page on Wikipedia, around 3% of the time they also click on an image." We would love to see a consolidated dashboard of image clicks on a per wiki basis over time.

Event Timeline

This statistic was mentioned in the Technology Department's Quarter in Review for Q4 of FY 19/20. Looking further, I found out that it comes from the Understanding Engagement with Images in Wikipedia research project. More detailed statistics can be found on the First Round of Analysis page, which I'll dig into further. Looks like T250154 is the parent task for this work.
