Wikidata QRank

CI Data License: CC0-1.0 Code License: MIT REUSE status

QRank is a ranking signal for Wikidata entities. It gets computed by aggregating page view statistics for Wikipedia, Wikitravel, Wikibooks, Wikispecies and other Wikimedia projects. For example, according to the QRank signal, the fictional character Pippi Longstocking ranks lower than Harry Potter, but still much higher than the obscure Äffle & Pferdle.

Entity Label QRank
Q8337 Harry Potter 17602336
Q6668 Pippi Longstocking 2470590
Q252869 Äffle & Pferdle 24545

A ranking signal is useful when time or space are too limited to handle everything. When fixing data problems, use QRank for maximal impact of your work. In cartography, use QRank to display important features more prominently; this map of Swiss castles uses QRank to decide which castles deserve a large symbol.
