Gossip Machine v2 finds high interest days for Wikipedia articles and turns them into Google News searches.
Enter the name of the Wikipedia article you want to check, along with the year and the month you want to check. (Wikipedia did not start keeping page views until late 2015, so your year options start at 2016.)
Click the button and you’ll get page view data for that month along with a list of especially busy days in that month. The list is sorted by busy-ness with a red bar showing how much higher page views were than average, and each item includes a clickable Google News search for that specific date.
