I have just came up with an idea how to test the wikipedia search traffic visualisation functions that I wrote about in my previous post. I decided to check if R is really gaining popularity that fast.

What we can see here is that there is a steady growth in number of people who want to find out what is it all about. There is also one large spike. Initially I thought that it may be simply due to some kind of a bug in Wikipedia traffic statistics. But maybe something happened in January 2009?

It seems that The New York Times made quite a good job by popularizing R. Since this publication there is a real boost in number of people searching for “R (programming language)” on wikipedia.
