Just announcing the 5th anniversary of the MobileRead wiki which happens this April and providing a status update. The wiki has now been visited almost 13 million times (12,992,230), up from a bit more than 7 million this time last year. For a history of our wiki see last years announcement
. You can also visit the wiki page Wiki Statistics
for details on the milestones. If you are interested in the most popular pages there are month to month statistics for 2010
. To compare one month to another tap the history tab and pick which moths to compare. The top page in the wiki continues to be the E-book Reader Matrix
with more than a million and a half views of this one page.
This year we have broadened the scope of the wiki to appeal to the influx of new tablet and eReading devices. There is now info on video capabilities for example and several comparison tables. Many new devices have been added and if you don't see yours please add it yourself.
I would like to focus a bit on the multi-language feature. We don't have very good support of multi-languages but they are very popular with users. It would be nice to have a few more pages.
We have 4 German pages in the top 100 and the top one has 81,888 views. It contains all of the German language eBooks posted here at MobileRead in a sortable table taking care of a deficiency in our current database. It was a lot of work to build and maintain. I am sure there are 81 thousand happy users. We only have a total of 13 information pages in German.
We have 2 French pages in the top 100 and the top up has 33,578 views. Lots of interest but we only have 9 information pages in French.
We have 1 Spanish page in the top 100 with 26,734 views. We only have a total of 2 information pages.
We also have 2 Russian pages and one Dutch.
Help your fellow citizens who's language skills are not as good as your own.
