Briefly about the method

Wikipedia currently has over 53 million articles in over 300 languages. Despite the impressive number of articles, not all topics can be written in this free encyclopedia. At the same time, the community of each language version has the ability to decide which topic can be described in the encyclopedia, and which is not (for example, article must be notable). In addition, each language version can describe the same topic in its own way – it all depends on the number and experience of interested authors (Wikipedia users who edit articles).

Almost every Wikipedia article has an alignment to certain categories. Additionally, based on the content, you can specify the subject of the article – for example, using semantic relations on Wikidata or DBpedia. More details on the automatic classification process can be found in various scholarly papers (e.g. for articles or sources).

This article selected the most-developed language versions of Wikipedia with more than 1 million articles, including English, German, French, Spanish, Russian, Polish and other. After the classification of articles, only those that are dedicated to individual events. As a result for English Wikipedia 59160 articles about events were found, for French – 22438 events, for Italian – 19690 events, for German – 18462 events, for Spanish – 15275 events, for Russian – 13887 events, for Portuguese – 11891 events, for Polish – 10564 events, for Japanese – 7061 events, for Arabic – 6917 events and for Chinese – 5916 events.

As mentioned earlier, every Wikipedia article can have different language versions, so we can find out different names of the same object (event). Using open data on Wikipedia article views we can find out how many times a given article has been viewed on specific days. After collecting data for viewing all Wikipedia articles on events in the appropriate language versions May 2020 ranking of the most popular was made. First, the positions of events in the ranking are shown, which were obtained by adding up the page views from different language versions for a given event. Later, the most popular events are shown for only one language version of Wikipedia.

Recently we observed that visitors number for some articles was “overclocked” in some periods of time. Therefore, we decide to provide additional modification of the pageview statistics for such cases and change this number (usually by reduction). Fairness of statistics for each article in selected language version in selected months can be assessed using such indicators as: number of the edits and authors, page protection, the rate of citation increasing of the article, popularity statistics of related keywords (phrases) in Google Trends and others.
