Use queries.php tool to improve your HowTo wikis

Edited by Eng

As a wiki becomes popular, looking at user search data can be used to greatly improve the wiki usefulness. Often search data will show us what a user wants to see. We can use this the user search query data to then improve and add to the wiki. In some cases, starting a new wiki to address the user's needs may be appropriate, but when appropriate, adding a new section the existing HowTo wiki is usually best.
