April 2015 Crawl Archive Available
The crawl archive for April 2015 is now available! This crawl archive is over 168TB in size and holds more than 2.11 billion webpages. The files are located in the commoncrawl bucket at /crawl-data/CC-MAIN-2015-18/.
To assist with exploring and using the dataset, we’ve provided gzipped files that list:
- all segments (CC-MAIN-2015-18/segment.paths.gz)
- all WARC files (CC-MAIN-2015-18/warc.paths.gz)
- all WAT files (CC-MAIN-2015-18/wat.paths.gz)
- all WET files (CC-MAIN-2015-18/wet.paths.gz)
By simply adding either s3://commoncrawl/ or https://data.commoncrawl.org/ to each line, you end up with the S3 and HTTP paths respectively.
The release also includes the April 2015 Common Crawl Index, introduced last month by Ilya Kreymer, creator of https://webrecorder.io/. The Common Crawl Index offers a fascinating and new way to explore the dataset! For full details, refer to Ilya’s guest blog post.
