    Everything is entertainment/celebrity related aside from Bundy (though you could argue he became a celebrity too).

    The top 0.1% of pages earn 25% of the views, the bottom 80% only earn 4%. This shows you just how much of Wikipedia's traffic is now devoted to manchild hobbies. It's a staggering figure when you consider they haven't tapped into all the potential markets yet.

    Glad to report that I looked up none of those last year

    What new happened with Ted Bundy that caused people to look him up?

    The Netflix doc. It turned him into a household name for a whole new generation.

    With the decline of network TV, the cultural zeitgeist is steered by Netflix.

    It makes sense that mindless entertainment would dominate the views. Look at those mobile% numbers, someone looking to research/learn something of substance is likely gonna be searching from a PC/laptop and they aren't gonna be in front of it their entire waking day whereas people have their phones with them 24/7
