I think tye
made some changes to site policy with respect to robots a few weeks after Are monks hibernating?
. Would it be possible to compare the last three months, say, with the same period last year and previous years?
Update: Here is that information, number of top nodes for each month May-Sep, obtained from jcwren's PTAV (as referenced by grinder in Re: Are monks hibernating?), followed by the same data normalized to the month in 2002:
|Sep|| 665|| 650|| 958|| 921|| 966|| 951|
|Aug|| 802|| 733|| 995||1000||1022||1149|
|Jul|| 722|| 725||1024||1010||1176||1203|
|Jun|| 651|| 758||1046||1038||1095||1037|
|May|| 673|| 735||1088||1020||972||1142|
|Aug||69||63|| 86|| 87|| 88||100|
|Jul||60||60|| 85|| 83|| 97||100|
|May||58||64|| 95|| 89|| 85||100|
|SUM||64||65|| 93|| 91|| 95||100|
I am sure to have made some mistakes, but the general idea should stay in the same ballpark:
- There was a steep drop (by one third) going from '05 to '06
- No change this year compared to last year, though the meaning of last year's numbers depends on the state of the robots file at that time
