May 2016 Crawl Archive Now Available
The crawl archive for May 2016 is now available! More than 1.46 billion web pages are in the archive, which is located in the commoncrawl bucket at crawl-data/CC-MAIN-2016-22/.
To assist with exploring and using the dataset, we provide gzipped files that list:
- all segments (CC-MAIN-2016-22/segment.paths.gz)
- all WARC files (CC-MAIN-2016-22/warc.paths.gz)
- all WAT files (CC-MAIN-2016-22/wat.paths.gz)
- all WET files (CC-MAIN-2016-22/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 Common Crawl URL Index for this crawl is available at: https://index.commoncrawl.org/CC-MAIN-2016-22/.
For more information on working with the URL index, please refer to the previous blog post or the Index Server API. There is also a command-line tool client for common use cases of the url index.
We are grateful to our friends at Moz for donating a seed list of 400 Million URL’s to enhance the Common Crawl. The seeds from Moz were used for the May crawl in addition to the seeds from the preceding crawl. Moz URL data will be incorporated into future crawls as well.
Please donate to Common Crawl if you appreciate our free datasets! We’re also seeking corporate sponsors to partner with Common Crawl for our non-profit work in open data. Please contact [email protected] for sponsorship information and packages.
