The most popular web pages on RePEc services

We have occasionally been asked what the most popular web pages are on RePEc. This is somewhat difficult to determine, as there are many RePEc services, and they may log traffic in different ways. Only the counting of abstract views and downloads is treated uniformly, at LogEc. The list below should thus be taken with a grain of salt, and may be subject to measurement error and seasonal factors. In fact, one page is missing and should be somewhere in the top of the list, the EconPapers search page. Here we go:


  1. IDEAS search result
  2. IDEAS home
  3. Rankings
  4. RePEc Author Service home
  5. IDEAS journal list
  6. IDEAS paper series list
  7. IDEAS author list
  8. Top authors
  9. Top journals by simple impact factor
  10. Top economics departments
  11. Fantasy league
  12. EDIRC home
  13. MyIDEAS
  14. IDEAS advanced search page
  15. EDIRC alphabetical listing
  16. RePEc Author Service automatic suggestions
  17. IDEAS book series list
  18. EconPapers home
  19. MyIDEAS login
  20. Top US economics departments
  21. Top young economists
  22. Top institutions
  23. IDEAS JEL classification home
  24. CitEc home

A surprisingly large number of links to the rankings are in the list above. That should not indicate that economists are obsessed with rankings. IDEAS for example, has about two million web pages. The ranking pages actually represent only a small fraction of total traffic.
