Thanks for the interest, John! I put the list of the
top 250 up at
-- but I
didn't exactly publicize it. I guess this is my chance to do so now!
Also, a list of the top 1000 redlinked articles is up on a separate
and the entire dataset is up at
-- note that it is
If you have any other questions about the redlinks/bluelinks dataset,
feel free to ask me. And you can check out the meta page for more fun
links data, such as how many more links we added between 2009 and
2011, or incoming links to articles about countries / each country's

is just misleading: For instance,
one of the most ranking missing articles,
[[Alison Campbell]], has all 5000+ links leading not from other articles,
but from article talk pages, where it is not explicitly present, which
means someone put this red link into one of the highly used templates for
project evaluations (I did not investigate which one). I actually doubt
that the person is even notable, though there is a short stub in Dutch
Wikipedia. There is no way that this is really one of the most wanted
articles. Others I tried from the first page share the same problem.
