Today we are releasing Majestic Million CSV FREE on an updating basis, for anyone to download and use under a free creative commons license.
Way back on Christmas Day, we released a copy of the Majestic Million database as a one off. We decided it was time to do something for FREE again that would help the web-o-sphere and thought that updating this for you every day and giving it free would fit the bill 🙂
The Majestic Million is a list of the top 1 million website in the world, ordered by the number of referring subnets. A subnet is a bit complex – but to a layman it is basically anything within an IP range, ignoring the last three digits of the IP number.
When we launched the Majestic Million, it did get a good reaction – but we have not seen it used as prolifically as we would like. We hope that making the data freely available in a CSV, programmers and API fanatics will download this on a regular basis and use it for interesting new ideas.
If you want to see what data is available in the Majestic Million download, I would urge you first to go and play with our own web implementation of Majestic Million, because a CSV file with 1 MILLION LINES is NOT something you want to download on a whim! However, recent versions of Excel can cope with 1 million lines if you have a computer with enough memory to handle it. Most people, though, would want to import the data into a database first.
We have set up a CRON job so that every day we will recompile the data, which is based on our Fresh index. It is POSSIBLE that on two consecutive days, the data is the same, if the Fresh Index did not update for some reason, but usually the data will change daily. Please do not try to download the data more than once every 24 hours, otherwise you will simply end up getting banned or we will have to reconsider giving the data away or putting it behind a walled garden.
Be wary scrapers… this will do your head in if you weren’t expecting it… The Majestic Million CSV can regularly be downloaded here:
Please – if you have made use of this data for a benevolent purpose, please mention it in the comments. We are dying to see what you use it for. We cannot promise to publish all uses and the CSV is of course provided without warranties or support unless you are on a paid plan for other API options.
