I'd be okay if they were added to a playlist as well.

It's different for different types of links.

Adding ?sort=p to the end of the link for a user's videos to sort by views:

https://www.youtube.com/user/USERNAMEHERE/videos?sort=p  

To sort by most recent, use sort=dd, or the reverse sort=da.

For sorting results of a search, use ?search_sort=video_view_count:

https://www.youtube.com/results?search_sort=video_view_count&search_query=SEARCH_TERM_HERE    

or by rating: search_sort=video_avg_rating
or by upload date: search_sort=video_date_uploaded

To limit search results to videos, add filters=video:

https://www.youtube.com/results?search_sort=video_view_count&filters=video&search_query=SEARCH_TERM_HERE  

You can also limit search results by
channels: filter=channel
playlists: filter=playlist

Having said all that, it appears the features seem to come and go.

Add this to the end of a YouTube video link on the channel:

&feature=mfu_in_order&list=UL
  • Doesn't work. going to youtube.com/… doesn't show ordered list by most popular, and clicking on Next, it doesn't jump to the next popular one (1. 44k views, 2. 17 views). – kenorb Sep 24 '14 at 13:48
