Today I got up early. Not to go for a morning walk but to perform an Internet analysis. Crazy thought? But I did it. Not the whole of the Internet, but a small fraction of it. I wanted to know how all types of websites sum up and give a brief picture of the Internet. For this analysis I had to choose a set of random websites which I never came across in the past. After thinking deeply for an hour I thought I should drop the idea and rather write a post on something else as it seemed impossible to find a set of random websites for analysis. But suddenly something struck my mind. I thought why shouldn’t I consider websites from one.com to onehundred.com. The thought was great, but it made me feel dizzy as I knew that analyzing 100 websites would definitely test my patience and consume my day. Anyways after twelve hours of digging, I am up with this Internet analysis.
|Type of Website||Number||Percent
|Websites containing only advertisements||29||24.37%||redirects-5
|Websites which are registered but inactive||17||14.30%||N/A|
|Websites which redirects to other domains||16||13.44%||suitable-7
|Websites for sale||12||10.08%||advertisements-9
|Websites under construction||9||7.56%||advertisements-2|
|Websites which are just Parked domains||8||6.72%||N/A|
|Websites containing adult content||5||4.20%||redirects-3|
Out of the analyzed 100 websites, only 23 (19.33%) of them are “suitable” for all. 7 out of these 23 websites redirect to other domains. The majority of websites (24.37%) fall under the “only advertisement” category. These websites are hosted only for sending a user as per his search query to websites containing ads. A majority (14.30%) of registered websites are “inactive”. These websites did not show up when I searched for them. But searching on GoDaddy.com I found that they are all registered. 13.44% of all websites “redirect” to other domains. 10.08% of the websites, most of which contain solely advertisements are up for “sale”. 7.56 % websites are yet to be launched and are “under construction”. 2 of them contain advertisements to compensate for the time and money while the websites are being designed. 6.72% websites are just “parked domains”. Domains are parked mainly for sale at a later time. The last on the list are adult websites which consist of 4.20% of the 100 analyzed websites.
