Feed Domain Statistics

A Syndic8 fan asked me to analyze the number of distinct domains represented in the Syndic8 feed database. A few SQL queries later, and I had the answer: 15,833 unique top-level domains. Any domain which supplied more than one URL (e.g. blogspot.com, blogger.com, and so forth) was counted just once.

Here are some of the top domains:

<td>
  topix.net
</td>

<td>
  36,807
</td>

<td>
  cuteandsingle.com
</td>

<td>
  2,484
</td>

<td>
  scotsman.com
</td>

<td>
  1,786
</td>

<td>
  livejournal.com
</td>

<td>
  1,582
</td>

<td>
  newsisfree.com
</td>

<td>
  1,202
</td>

<td>
  yahoo.com
</td>

<td>
  1,178
</td>

<td>
  typepad.com
</td>

<td>
  999
</td>

<td>
  blogspot.com
</td>

<td>
  861
</td>

<td>
  medicinenet.com
</td>

<td>
  803
</td>

<td>
  moreover.com
</td>

<td>
  769
</td>

At some point I will add these to the official collection of Syndic8 Feed Statistics, and I will also allow for feed retrieval by domain name.
