I am working on my project based on wikipedia. For
that i require
number of backlinks for each page in wiki.Is it possible to find them
using the pagelinks table.
Yes, you can use the pagelinks table for that. You need something like
SELECT COUNT(*) FROM pagelinks WHERE pl_namespace=0 AND pl_title='Page_title'
Or it there some other method. I tried the
mediawiki-api as well but was not able to understand how they can be
AFAIK, there is no method to get a *count* of backlinks in the API;
you could get a complete list with something like
and count those, but that would be wasting resources.
