I'm still fairly new to this Stack, but I've been trying to get involved with writing good questions and answers, and I decided to ask a question that had been on my mind for a while.
Relatively quickly, it got an answer that pointed out I had mis-remembered the relevant passage in Genesis, and that the answer was clearly in the text. I accepted the answer straight away (without waiting 24hr), because I didn't see much point in leaving such a simple question open.
Today, I've discovered that the question has earned me the "Popular Question" badge, as it's had over 1000 views. Looking at other new questions, that's order of magnitude higher than the average question, which barely reach 20 views. Given it was answered relatively simply, it doesn't feel like a question that deserves such an anomalous number of views.
Can anyone with more experience on this stack, and possibly access to statistics (if such things exist), suggest a reason why this question in particular has been viewed so many times?
