Mangle

Statistics: August 2004

A log is kept of the options and results for each random search. I wrote a small program to analyse everything based on the data from the past month.

Custom word searches were exluded from this analysis, as they would greatly influence the results.

Number of custom word searches 1465
Usable number of searches (minus custom word) 9841
Number of times the archive search was used 2504

Total number of words used in searches 24610
Number of times safemode was used 230
Number of times the query failed 113
Number of times no URL was found 83
Number of words in the database 7111


Website URL hits
The root URL was counted for each site visited. For example, If a web site address 'www.news.com/paper/june/00232.html' was hit, only 'www.news.com' was counted.
