Wikipedia is the best thing ever… Making it even better? Its public list of stats, shedding light on what the collective world is thinking about.[1]

The Multiyear ranking of most viewed Wikipedia pages from December 1, 2007 to the present demonstrates human interests during that period. The views data for Wikipedia’s first years (2001–2007) is fragmentary and complete data on mobile views is available only since July 1, 2015. This presently precludes the possibility of all-time ranking with the multiyear perspective being the closest we can get to.

The lists below include desktop views since December 1, 2007 and mobile views since July 1, 2015.

Being one of the best indicators of “what the collective world is thinking about,” the list of most viewed Wikipedia pages receives wide attention in unassociated institutions and external popular media sources. University Degli Studi di Milano created an engine of the complete ranking of all Wikipedia articles for 2014–2017.[2] In 2013, an external media source attempted to determine the 10 most popular Wikipedia pages of all time.[3] The same year the BBC news website published an article discussing most searched Wikipedia articles in 2012 in different languages.[4] Other versions of top-lists for shorter periods are regularly published and discussed by external popular media.[5][6][7][8] [9][10][11]



Most-viewed pages were detected from earlier lists for shorter periods (named in “See also” and “External links” below) and such engines as Wikitally (existed until 2017) and Massview.[12] Massview counts views by category since July 1, 2015. The number of views for the detected pages were found in Multiyear ranking of Wikipedia pages views.[13] This site gives the approximate number of desktop views since December 1, 2007 and mobile views since July 1, 2015. Views on this site until June 2015 for desktop include bot pageviews, while those July 2015 for both desktop and mobile exclude identifiable bots and spiders (but may still end up counting many views by bots and spiders as legitimate human views). This might explain differences in view numbers between this site and the lists of Andrew West for 2015–2018.[14][15][16][17]

The leading page

The undisputed leader is Wikipedia’s Main page, with over 41 billion views as of January 2020 — more than the rest of the Top-100 list combined including non-ranked pages. For comparison, Despacito which leads YouTube[18] has 6.6 billion views. According to its information page, the Main page was created as Wikipedia marked its first year, on January 26, 2002. Wikipedia:Most popular pages October 2001, however, states that the Main page had existed and led by wide margin already in October 2001. It is not known which pages had led the ranking during Wikipedia’s first months, although by the end of the first month (January 31, 2001) the most viewed page was Usenet cabal.[19]

Pre-modern people

This category includes personalities born before AD 1400 (exception is made for Joan of Arc born in 1412) who cannot compete with our contemporaries, like Barack Obama and Michael Jackson. The general top-30 list of people includes 23 living people as of January 2020. This is a feature of the “nascent” Wikipedia. In the course of generations, such top-lists will contain only people passed away, for view-count continues posthumously.

In total, as of October 12, 2019, Wikipedia counts 1,609,522 people.[22] Of them, 929,502 are living,[23] or 57.75% (more than a half). 143,573 more were living in the Wikipedia period,[24] raising the percentage of this period’s people to 66.67 (precisely two-thirds). 341,079 more were living in the century preceeding Wikipedia (1901-2000),[25] raising the percentage of the contemporaries to 87.86. That is, people who lived from the beginning of history until 1900 – 98% of history – constitute only 12.14%.

3rd-millennium people

(December 1, 2007 – October 1, 2020)

Of people born in the 3rd millennium (which is defined here as starting in 2000), the first to receive a personal page in Wikipedia was Princess Elisabeth, Duchess of Brabant (born October 25, 2001). Her page was created on August 4, 2003. She was followed by two other princesses later that year: Lady Louise Windsor of Wessex obtained her page on November 26, 2003, at the age of 18 days; the page of Catharina-Amalia, Princess of Orange, was created on December 9, 2003.

Lady Louise Windsor, probably, gained the all-time leadership the following year (2004), as her page was much more viewed during the years we have data (December 2007–present). By the end of 2016, she was 4th in the multiyear list. Lady Louise Windsor was, probably, overcome in 2010 by Willow Smith—the undisputed leader of the 2010s. The page of Willow Smith was created on April 23, 2005 (year and a half after Lady Louise Windsor’s). During 2008–2009 the two had similar number of views, while in 2010 Willow Smith counted an extraordinary number of 3,100,000 views.[26] By August 31, 2016, she had total 12 million views, nearly three times more than the closest contender, Jackie Evancho.

In July 2019, Willow Smith was synchronously surpassed by two persons–Billie Eilish and Millie Bobby Brown–after leading over 100 months. Billie Eilish was the first to surpass Smith. On 7/24/2019 Millie Bobby Brown passed Billie Eilish in page views, and held the lead until 7/26/2019. She regained the title on 7/29/2019 and held it until 7/31/2019, and Billie EIlish has held it ever since.[27][28]

The undisputed leader of the year 2019 is Billie Eilish. She began the year on the 22nd place and gained the all time lead in July. For 2019, she was the most viewed among living people of all ages and her page was 10th in the general ranking.[29]

In the 2010s, the hereditary princes are gradually being overtaken by the “princes” of music and movies.

The first sportsperson to make this list is artistic gymnast Laurie Hernandez. She entered the list in August 2016, peaked at the 19th rank by the end of the year and dropped from the list in June 2018. She was followed and surpassed by LaMelo Ball in December 2017 (21st rank as of January 2020). LaMelo was joined and surpassed by his colleague, Zion Williamson, in 2019 (17th rank since October 2019, the highest a millennial athlete ever rose).RankPageViews in millions1Billie Eilish242Millie Bobby Brown 193Willow Smith174Maddie Ziegler135Lil Pump105Prince George of Cambridge107Noah Cyrus9.68Finn Wolfhard8.29Gaten Matarazzo8.110Greta Thunberg7.911Lady Louise Windsor6.812JoJo Siwa6.713Danielle Bregoli6.613Princess Charlotte of Cambridge6.615Mackenzie Foy6.516Jackie Evancho6.4*Barron Trump6.317Jacob Tremblay5.817Zion Williamson5.819Isabela Moner5.420James, Viscount Severn5.120LaMelo Ball5.122Yara Shahidi5.023Rowan Blanchard4.624Frankie Jonas4.525Skai Jackson4.326Jazz Jennings4.027Zaira Wasim3.928Dafne Keen3.829Noah Schnapp3.530Auli’i Cravalho3.430Grace VanderWaal3.430Mckenna Grace3.4
