I want to display in a webpart whats the top 5 ( recenlty updated and Most Popular wiki Pages). By most Popular I mean not be STAR rating but the most visited Wiki page.

How do I do it? My idea is to add a custom feild to a list and update the increment Counter when ever the page is visited and then display the pages with the maximum count.

  • You could pull from the site usage page for each wiki site...

  • Not out of the box, but you can create a simple webpart that pulls from the data in the site usage... Why reinvent the wheel by incrementing a value for each site hit?

  • How do I get the data in the site usage? Can you point me in the direction on how to go about it. I can create the webpart using coding from Visual studio 2010. I have sharepoint 2010.Also access to Sharepoint Designer

is using web analytics a possibility for you? see http://blogs.msdn.com/b/ecm/archive/2010/03/21/introducing-web-analytics-in-sharepoint-2010.aspx

I believe there are some out of the box webparts that can show most visited pages and things like that

  • Now this will get me the most visited pages. I need to check from the user if they want the most clicked paged or the most viewed page. Will post later.

  • another, complete different solution, would be to use google analytics and use that info to integrate in your site. javascript can be included using a CEWP

There is a web analytics web part with SharePoint 2010 that will give you the popularity ratings and most viewed content. It is included in SharePoint Server.
