How we got this information about GitHub

About crawling

Most of the intel we display to you here is procured through a approach called Crawling. That means we utilize an autonomous algorithm to load a website and obtain as much data from it as possible.

We intend to crawl GitHub frequently. Sites have a tendency to change suddenly, so this information might be a little stale. Below we show you when we last visited this site (6 months ago), and what page we analyzed.

Some web sites do serve varying content based on the country of their clients. Our systems are located in the United States of America, so any localized information we got will be adapted to an American viewership.
