Wikipedia Releases Clickstream Data
Wikipedia has released a data set of clickstream data for January 2015. A clickstream is the path a user requests to get to a desired web page or article by using a referer—clicking on a link or performing a search. The dataset contains 22 million referer-article pairs from the English language, desktop version of Wikipedia—just a sample of the 4 billion total requests made in January. Clickstream data is a valuable analytical tool as it can determine things like the most popular links in a web page and how users navigate through a website.
