Cool write up!
On the topic of "wiki" queries (adding "wiki" or "wikipedia"
to a query to
get more results from Wikipedia), I saw just under 3% of queries
from Google (among those with recoverable query strings) had some wiki
terms in them. That's queries, not users, so I'm guessing a lot of people
do it (I do it!).

We recently wrapped up survey participant sessions that were centered
around the Wikipedia.org
portal: how did they get there, what did they do
when they arrived, do they know that the footer (with sister project
descriptive text) exists, new language by article count dropdown proposal
and search satisfaction.
We were able to chat with these participants because they took one of our
surveys (in May
and June <https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T136874#2418095> 2016) that
we ran on the portal page; which was run to attempt to determine why and
how users arrived at Wikipedia.org
Daisy Chen conducted the sessions, sifted and compiled the data and it's
written up here
Daisy will also present the findings and conclusions during July's Research
next week. This research is also instrumental to the new page layout
discussion we have ongoing here
If there are any questions, please feel free to ping Daisy or myself on
the research and/or the Wikipedia portal and search work.
