How we got this information about GitHub

About crawling

Most of the data we display to you here is collected through a process called Crawling. That means we use an autonomous algorithm to retrieve a site and infer as much information from it as we can.

We do our best to crawl GitHub as often as possible. Sites have a habit to get altered suddenly, as a consequence our information could be out of date. In the following we show you when we last crawled this web site (3 months ago), and what page we consulted.

Sometimes web sites do serve different content based on the country of their clients. We use servers in the United States, so any localized results we received will most certainly be adjusted to a US viewership.
