Statrr was a project I thought would be fun. The goal was to provide website statistics for millions of websites, and also get into chrome addon development.
You can search a keyword, domain, IP, ASN or DNS server
I made seven different top pages: Countries, Hosts, Web Technologies, Server Types, Keywords, Sites, Name Servers, Pageranks
Each domain has a full overview page, showing the sites demographics and traffic rankings.
This overview page also provides four different types of ranking icons a developer can use.
I wrote my own sitemap generator for Google and Yahoo, google crawled all 3,500,000 pages I submitted to it. I learned how googlebot reacts, and what it likes and doesn't like.
I also created a chrome addon for Statrr, It displays the pages popularity and pagerank.
This project took me about 3 weeks to finish, the data base was huge. I was working with tables that contained over 50,000,000 rows. I eventually got all of the pages loading in under 0.01 seconds. The three things I really gained from this project was SEO, working with large databases, and making chrome addons.
