How we got this information about Wikipedia

About crawling

Most of the intel we display to you here is procured through a process called Crawling. In other words we utilize an autonomous system to retrieve a web site and extract as much data from it as we can.

We do our best to crawl Wikipedia regularly. Sites sometimes will get altered rapidly, so our information could be out of date. In the following we indicate when we last visited this web site (4 months ago), and what results we inspected.

Sometimes sites do show different content depending on the country of their visitors. We use servers in the United States, so any localized information we received will most certainly be adapted to a Northern-American viewership.
