[edit] Abstract

This paper compares the monthly lists of the 100 most visited Wikipedia pages for the period of September 2006 to January 2007. {searchCrystal} is used to visualize the overlap between the five monthly Top 100 lists to show which pages are highly visited in all five months; which pages in four of the five months and so on. It is shown that almost 40 percent of a month's top 100 pages are visited in all five months, whereas 25 percent are highly visited only in a single month. The presented visualizations make it possible to gain quick insights into the overlap and topical relationships between the monthly lists.
