Dear Martin,

As previously stated, we are aware of your viewpoint and the mentioned issues. However, we maintain that the Common Crawl data set is so far the best source to study Web developments, mainly due to its large size of around five percent of the indexed web. Of course, every selection mechanism to reduce the result data set size is problematic. As already explained, PageRank is used to determine domains that are crawled more thoroughly. We feel this compromise to be acceptable for the time being. For example, we have found 133,541 URLs with the GoodRelations vocabulary from 1,638 domains, which shows how some domains are indeed crawled deeply. 

We welcome further analysis on vocabulary usage, regardless of the data corpus used, and are always eager to compare and discuss results.

Best,

Hannes
