Looking into spam I received I realised my site is in the Tranco list which ranks the webs 1 million most popular websites.

There are between 1,1 billion and 1,9 billion websites in the world. Both those sources agree there are some 200 million active websites (the rest being parked domains or not currently in use).

My website ranks somewhere near 670.000th (with an uptick in the last days, presumably due to writing about the spammy research mentioned above.) Right up there with other fine web outlets like illegal gambling sites and fake luxury brand purveyors.

That means my blog is in the 1-0,7/200 = 99,65th percentile of websites. Counting only the active websites.

That’s a mighty long tail, when I’m anywhere near its head.
