This Did you know statistics (DYK STATS) page is an attempt to recognize the DYK entries that have distinguished themselves, either by receiving an unusually high number of page views while being featured on DYK, or by going on to become some of Wikipedia's best content after appearing at DYK. The page illustrates the types of hooks that have been particularly successful in attracting readers. The statistics can be manually or semi-automatically updated.

For page view counts, there are separate lists for the all-time top hooks and the most effective hooks on a monthly basis. If you have thoughts on the format of this page, or whether it is useful, please post your comments on the Discussion page.

Please do not see this list as a competition, but rather a celebration of some of the most effective DYK hooks.

Please note that hits from outside the DYK section of the main page are also included here. That might include random clicks or direct searches, but also views from other parts of the main page which feature the same article on the same day.
