Via Steffen's blog I found an interesting site that published visitors' statistics of Wikipedia.
Having a look at the statistics of the article on the 2009 EU Parliament elections, which appears on top of Google's list when you search for "European Parliament Elections 2009", one can see that between 70-250 people have been visiting this site per day during the last 3-4 month; in average around 120-130.
And although this is double the amount of the beginning of 2008, it is still a clear sign of low interest in the matter. The article on the European Parliament receives 7 times more attention these days.
Interesting to see is that the German and the French version of the article attract more interest than the English version, while the Italien version has less visitors. Any blind guesses, why this could be the case?
I will keep track of the development of these statistics in order to see whether there will be raising interest in the matter. Interesting to see would be a "turning point".
Under the category "Tracking: European parliament elections 2009" I am following up national and European activities on the path to the European Parliament elections 2009.
For an overview over all articles in this category have a look at the overview article.
