I came across the Stack Exchange's Greatest Hits blog post on EL&U's meta, and found that ELL has a "greatest hits" page. This page lists the questions that have received a lot of attention in terms of views and interactions. The list is pretty interesting, and it might be a good idea to check it every so often to make sure that the questions and answers reflect well on the site.
This explanation is at the bottom of the page:
Questions that got a large amount of views or a large amount of feedback.
The current algorithm divides the number of page views with the total amount of question and answer feedback received (adding a bonus for high view counts), excluding questions with less views than the median :- 186.
The number displayed for the median is dynamic - the last time I checked the page it was down to 172.
