Protocol Distribution

The URLs are gathered regardless of the field type, we count one URL per object_id. So, if the same URL appears in the same entry in the title and the description, then it’s counted as one. However, if it’s in a story and in a comment to this story, then they are counted as two separate URLs.

The number of https links started growing very fast in 2011. In the middle of 2013, the number of http links started decreasing. What’s more interesting, the http links haven’t disappeared, yet.

The number of comments for a month is growing almost linearly. The number of stories also grows, but much slower.
