I have noticed a few SEDE queries that attempt to extract the referenced URLs from post bodies. Is there any chance we can get a table to list the URLs referenced by posts?

This should simplify queries and analysis involving referenced URLs.


I thought about having the URL normalised and including a column to identify if it was referenced as a hyperlink or an embedded image, but figured that would probably require more processing than is practical.

  • Aside from the data processing requirements, I think this is too specialized. There is a table that tracks linked questions for the right hand side bar (not included in the data dump), but not all URLs in every post. – Jon Seigel Jul 27 '11 at 16:28
