Why do I see this category of NONE at all?
How often should I see the rating of NONE?
Given the vastness of the Web, and the fact that new content is constantly being added, it is normal to see URLs that are not categorized in Reporter. These typically represent a small fraction of the overall Web usage in any organization. To ensure good ongoing coverage, the WebPulse system monitors overall access to uncategorized traffic on a daily basis and automatically assigns the most-visited sites to be reviewed and categorized by our Web Content Analysis team. This Guarantees that unrated sites receiving significant numbers of visits across our customer base will be rated within a 24 hours.
Here are some some highlights of the Webpulse system:
NOTE: The BCWF database should continue to supply ratings even if it looses connectivity to the bluecoat datacenters. The WebPulse service has been continuously operational for at least the past four years, so it is very unlikely that a customer would not have access to WebPulse unless there is a connectivity issue of some sort.
Reporter will store the NONE rating even while it collects other ratings for the same Website. It does not replace NONE with a real rating once the real once is seen in the access log, it merely adds in the real category. This is because Reporter can store up to 4 categories for each in it's database, and it does not realize that "NONE" actually means nothing, and becomes meaningless, once you get a real rating. The only way the "NONE" rating is lost is through it being expired out.
