FANDOM


This is a list of sites that the community considers to be prime "must have" sites for the first crawl of the web. We are aiming for around 35 million URLs in the first index, which is of course very small (more to come soon of course!). This is a list of URLs (and notes about each of them) that should evolve to be a generally accepted consensus of a good starting point of sites that should be deep crawled and included.

The list is divided into 3 groups. You can loosely think of these as "top ten", "top 50" (i.e. 40 more sites) and "top 100" (i.e. 50 more sites), but to avoid pointless edit warring, there is no need to stick too rigidly to "10" things in the first rank. The idea though is just to get some kind of rough prioritized list.

Sites should be good content sites, as opposed to seed sites. They should be the kind of thing people will want to find in a good quality search result. The "must have" sites. A section at the bottom will list good "seed" sites in the sense of "sites with good external links but which are not really destination sites themselves".

Class I Edit

websites in many different languages Edit

  • *.wikipedia.org – Some hundred thousand more articles in different languages so wikia search will not be seen as en-only-engine
    • *.wiktionary.org - 2,500,000 words in the largest languages on Earth

  • LibraryThing - books (including data from libraries around the world, and user-provided content)
  • bbc.co.uk - relatively few links to other sites, solid content site - normally it has links out to sites that relate to a particular story
  • *.indymedia.org This is one of most POV-sites I know; It sure has its value but IMHO it's not suitable for class I.
  • www.imdb.com - Good for movies... is this the best choice? What else to include in this category? Not very useful as a crawl seed, since it has essentially zero links to other sites, good content site.
  • www.sourceforge.net - Open Source software development web site. Coming from the open source area, I think this is one that can't be missed -- this has few external links
  • ebay.com
  • amazon.com
Are ebay.com and amazon.com good choices for Class I? They really do not fit the good content (ie information) category as they are more of consumer e-commerce sites. Joe Jaxx 16:46, 31 December 2007 (UTC)
I tend to agree with you on Ebay but not Amazon. Amazon has a lot of useful reviews and such like that. However, I don't want anyone to accuse me of conflict of interest (Amazon is an investor in Wikia), so I defer to others. Certainly both Amazon and Ebay should be spidered, but whether they are top priority or not is a good question.----Jimbo Wales 22:53, 7 January 2008 (UTC)
Why should Ebay be spidered? What else expect auctions is on their site? It should be included in the index if someone search for auctions but why spider all of their offers as well when there is so much out there which isn't spidered? --195.14.26.130 13:22, 8 January 2008 (UTC)

So what? It's this sort of insider baseball thing that will cripple wikia. Is Wikia really about who you know?
Actually I wrote that as more of a joke, because Jason is not really a supporter of the project, but a competitor who likes to troll on the mailing list in favor of his proprietary alternative. :) But I like Jason nevertheless, and he seems to enjoy tweaking me, so this was just a way of teasing him back.
