Total Views on a Forum

Can I see the total number of thread/message views on a particular forum? I’m interested in understanding how many total ‘hits’ a forum gets as a proxy to understand the overall volume of searches. If so, is this information available publicly?

How do views equate to searches?

If you can explain more about what you’re trying to achieve we may be able to advise on an approach.

It’s probably misleading to say that total views = total searches. What I’m trying to approximate is how many people are actually viewing the content on the forum to get a sense of how many customers actually have specific questions/concerns and seek out the forum to provide the answers. Does that make sense?

Why not just sort the topic list by the views column, click on it to do so. You can also do this per category.
