I am surprised how quickly MESE questions can accumulate views. It seems the views increase at a rate faster than on MO or MSE. What triggered my interest is a question (Justifications for: Why learn mathematics?) that garnered ~1700 views in 24 hrs, although there are other MESE questions which equally quickly amassed views (e.g., Why are triangles so prevalent in high school geometry?). Whereas I can point to many MO questions that get, say, 1 view per hr in their 1st few days, or MSE questions that barely get 1 view per day for a month.
Of course, MESE, MO, and MSE experience rather different traffic. I would be interested in any explanation of these views differences, either supported by stats, or just speculative.
