How we got this information about Wikipedia

About crawling

A lot of the data we show to you here is procured through a technology called Crawling. In other words we utilize an automated system to load a web site and extract as much intel from it as is feasible.

We intend to crawl Wikipedia as often as possible. Sites have a habit to get altered suddenly, which means our information could be a little stale. In the following we show you when the last time was we crawled this web site (6 months ago), and what results we used.

Some sites will serve varying content based on the origin of their clients. Our computers are located in the United States of America, so any localized information we got will most certainly be adapted to an American public.
