Wikipedia’s Most-Viewed Articles of 2023

Recall your 2023 internet searches. Well, Wikipedia has the data. The Wikimedia Foundation, overseeing the freely edited online encyclopedia, revealed that English Wikipedia amassed over 84 billion views this year. Notably, the most frequented article centered on ChatGPT, the omnipresent AI chatbot that has rapidly permeated diverse fields such as education, healthcare, law, and even religious discourse. OpenAI’s ChatGPT launched just over a year ago, has stirred discussions about the promises and potential risks of generative AI, comprehensively chronicled on its Wikipedia page.

Wikipedia’s Top Articles

In the 2023 rankings, the second most-read article on Wikipedia was the annual compilation of deaths, maintaining its high traffic as observed in 2022 and 2021, securing the #4 and #1 positions, respectively. Specific entries for notable individuals, including Matthew Perry and Lisa Marie Presley, drew substantial interest this year.

The third spot was claimed by the highly anticipated 2023 Cricket World Cup, with cricket-related entries dominating Wikipedia’s top 25 articles for the first time since tracking began in 2015. Notable mentions influencing internet-reading habits in 2023 included Barbenheimer, Taylor Swift, and more. The top 25 articles on English Wikipedia for the year are as follows:
