This page is a collection of overall statistics, milestones, and page statistics for this wiki.
 Page Statistics
For the latest updates see: Daily Statistics. Monthly archives are available at:
- Wiki 2010, Wiki 2011, Wiki 2012, Wiki 2013,Wiki 2014, Wiki 2015, Wiki 2016, Wiki 2017, Wiki 2018, and Wiki 2019.
View and compare monthly pages using history view or open two windows and set them side by side to compare. The pages include both main namespace and category pages that were in the top 100 pages. Over time pages outside the main namespace and category namespace were also listed if their total view count would place them in the top 100 pages for the site. Pages from other groups were added when their popularity reached values within the top 100. In early 2017 this view count for the top 100 exceeded 50,000 views and collection of pages statistics began on pages beyond the top 100. These pages in all namespaces are added to the list as the individual pages exceeded 50,000.
- At the end of 2017 there were 107 pages beyond 50,000 views and 6 pages outside the main namespace.
- At the end of 2018 there were 112 pages beyond 50,000 views and 7 pages outside the main namespace.
There are more detailed Page Statistics on select wiki pages when they have more than 100,000 views or were once in the top ten for the site. These include pages in the main namespace and two category pages which included information on a specific model. The policy of this wiki has been changed to exclude specific product descriptions in category pages.

- 15/2/9 The Main Page surpassed 1.5 million hits. It was the second page to reach this milestone.
- 15/1/31 The E-book Reader Matrix has reached 2 million hits and is the first page to do so.
- 15/1/22 There have now been over 25 million or more likely 31 million page views.

- 14/2/15 There have now been over 21 million or more likely 27 million
- 13/11/20 There have now been over 20 million hits or likely 26 million actual hits.
- 13/8/28 There have now been over 19 million hits on the wiki. Based on a calculation of the impact of the error mentioned below on milestone 13/3/17 and subsequent hit rate the correct milestone values should have been 6 million more hits on the wiki. Therefore the current hits are more reasonably 25 million hits.
- 13/6/11 There have now been over 18 million hits on the wiki. This is more properly 24 million hits.
- 13/4/21 The main page reached 1,000,071 views. It was the third page to reach a million views.
- 13/3/26 There have now been over 17 million hits on the wiki. This is more properly 23 million hits.
- 13/3/17 An error was discovered and corrected in the wiki statistics. In an effort to speed up wiki access recently accessed pages have been cached since the 11/11/1 change. These cached pages were not counted in any of the access statistics, neither page nor total. This is why the statistics have only moved slightly since that time.
- 12/4/24 E-book conversion reached 1,000,011 views. It is only the second page in the wiki to reach a million views.
- 12/1/29 There are now 1000 pages in the main namespace.
- 11/11/23 There now 1000 register users on the wiki with all banned users removed.
- 11/11/1 There is a new version of the wiki available with addition editing features. This version seems to keep track of users revisiting a wiki page thus the total access for a given page has slowed down significantly. Milestones for hits will be effected. (The original assumption on this change was incorrect. See milestone 13/3/17.)
- 11/10/30 The top ten pages reached 200,000 views or more.

The wiki was declared ready on April 10th 2006. At that time there was the Main Page (reached its final form on April 23), the comparison of E-book Reader Matrix, a Hanlin eBook Reader page, a Sony eBook Reader page, an iRex ILiad:owners page, a Jinke page, a Mobile links, and the sandbox. The eBook Reader matrix contained 4 devices, The Hanlin V8, the Hanlin V2, the Sony PRS-500 and the iRex iLiad (although the individual device pages came much later). The SunriseXP tutorial was added on April 12th and the SunriseXP reference was added on the 19th.
It struggled through the summer and by August 20, 2006 it had 31 pages. Interest was pretty high with 21,133 views and 8 pages had more than 1,000 hits. (When the same person revisits a page it doesn't count.) In the top 10 were 4 pages about the iLiad, 2 pages on the SunriseXP, the Main Page, the e-book Reader Matrix, and the Sony Portable Reader page. The rest of the pages had 6 more iLiad pages and two more on the PRS 500 as well as a page on the Sony Librie. There was more about the SunriseXP and the beginnings of pages on converting eBook formats and the technology of ePaper. For a list see: Wiki oldest archive. The Fujitsu 4096 Color E-Paper appeared in this wiki on Oct 7, 2006 and is still being talked about as a future device.
On nearly its first anniversary in April 27, 2007 there were 183,542 total page views and the top 30 had 1,000 views. The e-book Reader Matrix had risen to first place with 28,545 views. It would eventually dominate as the most popular page on the the site. The top 9 pages had more than 5,000 views and the top 3 more than 12,000.
In January 2008 the wiki had just over 200 entries. The MobileRead wiki was starting to take off by April 17, 2008 (the second anniversary) with well over a million page views. The top 20 pages all had better that 10,000 accesses.
 Page Statistics Comparison
Here are the statistics which shows what people are most interested in (roughly the top 20 or so) as of the middle of April for each year. (2009 is the end of Feb/first of Mar which is as close as we have data for) A monthly archive of page statistics can be found at at the links under the category:Statistics. (use the history tab to compare any two months). Up to date data can be seen at: Popular Pages

 The big picture History
The overall access to the wiki exceeded a million hits sometime in March 2008. It was at 1,085,462 on April 16, 2008. Each million milestone is in the table below. Due to a software bug the hits in cache were not counted between for about 18 months starting at the end of 2011. This bug is likely to have lost 6 million hits during that period. The table has been adjusted for the 540 days. Hits are in millions.
