Seems to be be a common feature of websites, fairly easy to determine, but not standardized. Can be qualify with criteria used (Add your motivation for this property here.) --- Jura 08:02, 25 February 2021 (UTC)


  •   Support, an important property for websites.--Arbnos (talk) 20:41, 5 March 2021 (UTC)
  •   Comment: how is this going to be referentiable, considering this could change over time with site tweaks? Are we going to have to do screen recordings or screenshot sequences as references for particular points in time? --Btcprox (talk) 05:44, 8 March 2021 (UTC)
  •   Oppose This seems rather difficult to explicitly quantify (how many clicks from where, exactly), and ambiguous (not being tracked in what manner, by which entities), and better recorded off WikiData and cited by us. JesseW (talk) 17:16, 14 March 2021 (UTC)
    • How to quantify it .. it starts when reaching the website, should this be in the description? For the samples, it seems rather straightforward. Also, you can add a reference when inputting or select the reference that suits you when querying. It's clear that more detail can be added with qualifiers if there is interest/need. Maybe you want to share sites or specific references you have in mind? Without the property, I don't quite see how you would add them though. --- Jura 11:49, 16 March 2021 (UTC)
