There's another option: the 2020 pandemic lockdowns made a huge peak on views, so year on year, 2021 has worse results.

2022(e)ko urt. 7(a) 18:41 erabiltzaileak hau idatzi du (Anders Wennersten <>):

When I look at statistics for mature wikipedias: en, de pl, nl they all
show a decrease of views of 13-15% in last 12 months from a year ago,
and number of active editors down 10- 20 % (with exception of en).

Has this been analysed somewhere, are we losing our readers and
contributors or is it mostly Google that access our info "smarter" not
creating "views"
