This question, Dozens of earthworms came on my terrace and died there, has, as of this posting, garnered 4,584 views. 4,584 people were attracted by a question about earthworms? Or did the word "dying" bring out ghouls? Or did the bizarreness of the question pique curiousity?
Do we know? Has anyone on this SE or any other SE analyzed what words or phrases attract views? (The results would differ with the SE, of course.)
Do we have a clue as to what the most attention-getting question would be on TGO? Is it possible to get a list of the most-viewed 25 or 50 questions? Of course, older questions have time to get more views, but even so, this would be an interesting list.
PS Don't take this personally, @OddDeer; I upvoted your question, I know how important earthworms are to the environment, but I am still amazed at the response.
