Php.net 550 (largely due to online doc and forum) sun.com 900 (java doc and forum) java.com 1122 slashdot.com 1223 (forum) Mysql.com 1296 (online doc, forum) gnu.org 7328 (massive docs, mailing list archives) wolfram.com 9065 (online doc, mathworld etc) Python.org 9410 (python doc and prob forums) Perl.org 26067 (perl doc, forum) paulgraham.com 48153 (lisp bigwig, but huh?) Perl.com 49104 haskell.org 118703 novig.com 130568 (lisp bigwig) franz.com 292598 lispworks.com 377906 (common lisp doc) Gigamonkeys.com 529551 (pop common lisp book) schemers.org 880284
The list is not that surprising.
Many top ones are due to the popularity of the lang, but also because their site hosts the lang's documentation and discussion forum (or wiki,blogs). Hosting a web forum are likely to increase traffic some 10 or 100 fold.
• paulgraham.com is unusually high. What's up with that?
• python.org at 9k seems also unusally high, compare that perl.org with online doc and forum is only 26k. Python.org has mailing list archives... maybe blogs too but am not sure it has forums... still the gab seems surprising. Even perl is not much talked about these days, but i'm guessing its market share is at least still 10 or 100 times of python...
If any one so wishes, add entries to the above list.
