[Wikimedia-l] Increase in page views for the last 3 months
Hi,

Looking at the summary reports per language, I've noticed a linear,
significant increase in pageviews for many European languages (ro, bg,
hu, fr) Wikipedias in the last 3 months. This is not happening for
Asian languages or Russian and is not obvious from the report card.

Has anything changed in the reporting or the visit patterns for these
Wikipedias? It looks pretty weird to have a 100% increase for Romanian
in just 3 months [1].

Thanks,
Strainu

Hi Strainu,

We noticed and are investigating. It surely looks almost too good to be true.
Any suggestions for an explanation are welcome.

Cheers,
Erik

I would guess either national press, or a change in how the popular search
engines work?

Are we running & recording certain defaulted random queries from time to
time to compare?

[Wikimedia-l] Increase in page views for the last 3 months [ In reply to ]
Hi,

I closely monitor Indic WP stats and witnessed a similar near 100% spike
during April to June 2013. http://stats.wikimedia.org/EN/SummaryBN.htm

Tried very much to find out what triggered this but didn't come across
anything that significant to have caused this. Wondering if there is any
way to get a more nuanced understanding of such events? It would be helpful.

Pretty similar to Spanish and Catalan:

http://stats.wikimedia.org/EN/SummaryES.htm
http://stats.wikimedia.org/EN/SummaryCA.htm

Some Catalan editors {{vague}} were wondering how much the nice pannel
featuring Wikipedia text and image in Google searches had to do with
this. But yes, it's almost too nice to be true.

It would be interesting to see whether the increase in page views pulls
a vawe of increased edits and editors numbers.

Similar thing to Gujarati Wikipedia
http://stats.wikimedia.org/EN/SummaryGU.htm

Peak at August 2013
Down at April 2013

It may be possible that people who are using local language google search
increased.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Increase in page views for the last 3 months [ In reply to ]
I have assumed it is an effect of Google starting to show an extract
from Wikipedia on the page where they show hit results.

I raised the issue Sept 29 in a thread here called New Google interface
to Wikipedia

To address wild speculations on
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Knowledge_Graph , it would be quite
useless to have even just a simple thing as an archive of all updates to
http://stats.wikimedia.org/wikimedia/squids/SquidReportGoogle.htm . I
hope the server has space for 130 KB more each month. :)

Assumptions are dangerous. The feature was apprently enabled on
2012-12-04 for Spanish, French, German, Portuguese, Japanese, Russian
and Italian; all those languages show a decrease in page views on that
month (except Russian whose trend is constant though)...

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Increase in page views for the last 3 months [ In reply to ]
Thanks all for thinking along.

We have found the cause of the unbelievable growth in page views, and it turns out to be an bug indeed.

Around August 2013 a site change caused internal housekeeping messages to be counted as page views by our webstatscollector software.
As the patch was rolled out progressively, every month more bogus page views were added, up to several billion per month in November.

All page review reports now have a very clear warning about this issue.
http://stats.wikimedia.org/EN/TablesPageViewsMonthlyCombined.htm

Thanks to Christian Aistleitner for pinpointing the specific new url's that caused overcount, of up to 100 million per day in November:

Special:CentralAutoLogin/createSession
Special:CentralAutoLogin/start
../autonym.ttf

Knowing this we can patch the hourly projectcount files.
Original files: http://dumps.wikimedia.org/other/pagecounts-raw/2013/2013-11/
Patched files: http://dumps.wikimedia.org/other/pagecounts-ez/projectcounts/

I'll reply on this thread when the patch has been applied.

Erik Zachte

You should also remove anything else beginning with Special:CentralAutoLogin/.

Maybe Special:MWOAuth/ and Special:OAuth/ too.

Or they could be used via /w/index.php* URLs so that they're not counted?

However we have seen a 20-30% drop in pageviews coming out of this tool
http://toolserver.org/~alexz/pop/view.php

Mr.Z-man has looked into it here
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Mr.Z-man/pageview but has not seem to
have found the reason yet.

Thanks for pointing that out.

I have not fully caught up on reading up on the internals of our OAuth
implementation, but when looking at the sampled 1:1000 logs, I could
only find two requests to

Special:OAuth/initiate

. No other requests to Special:MWOAuth/ , Special:OAuth/ . Should we
already see traffic to those endpoints?

Best regards,
Christian

Not a whole lot, yet, and it may never really get to be *that* many.
On the other hand, maybe it will. It certainly shouldn't ever get
anywhere near the level of Special:CentralAutoLogin.

The /initiate you saw should have been followed by a call to
/authorize and then likely a call to /token, but of course those could
have missed the sampling. We've also got /verified, /identify, and
/grants in there.

Of all these, /authorize, /verified, and /grants are the only ones
that could remotely be considered a real pageview. You can see
/authorize by going to
https://tools.wmflabs.org/oauth-hello-world/enduser.php and clicking
the "Make an edit" button, /verified at
https://www.mediawiki.org/w/index.php?title=Special:OAuth/verified&oauth_verifier=1234&oauth_token=5678,
and /grants at https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Special:OAuth/grants.

Ok. Thanks for the clarification.

Yes, probably.

Thanks for explaining the course of actions for the endpoints, and the
examples.

[Wikimedia-l] Increase in page views for the last 3 months [ In reply to ]
Here is notice that this issue has been resolved.



A few days ago Christian Aistleitner patched webstatscollector to filter
bogus requests.

After that I patched the raw data files since last July, substracting all
bogus counts.



For an in-depth analysis of recent pageview trends after correction see

http://tinyurl.com/pmm66v4



I also marked the bug as resolved

https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=57980

http://tinyurl.com/psjd6oy Appears to be the correct tinyurl now (it
appears when you get to the error screen from the original one but... it's
very hidden underneath a single linked period)
