This list of pages that either received the most visits or that are the best rated users. Unfortunately, there does not seem to be a way to list pages by number of visits, so until I find a way, I have to do it manually. This page is more useful for me because it allow me to know people interests. But having to do it manually might be too long for what it's worth.
