How do I get the number of views in the past day (or within a specific time-range) on a question with the Stack Exchange API?

1 Answer 1


As far as I know the attribute view_count is not stored each time a view for an unique IP is processed. Instead view_count is a simple counter without history.

If you want to know the number of views for a question over a period of time you have to keep track of the view_count yourself by querying it and storing the result.

The above is also true for SEDE. You could determine viewcount for a post per quarter if you download the posts.xml from each Stack Exchange datadump.
