Perhaps the most reliable indicator here is the lowest "best node" because the highest one often tends to be an "outlier" (that is, a freakishly popular node) while the lowest ones in the top 10 and top 20 lists tend to have similar values. The lowest best node has declined for the past four years, though the rate of decline appears to be slowing this year.
