Mangle

Statistics: January

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.

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.

A little bit of shuffling with the top spots. Somewhere near the end of January, netnews.org started pointing to beaskund.helloyou.ws, which is the same site. If you take into account both sites, netnews.org took over the top spot! We'll see what happens next month.

** Note that the site wortschatz.uni-leipzig.de contains a 10000+ word list of the english language, and so this page is generally found if an odd combination of rarely used words are used in the search.
