Understanding how popular (or not) a given Web service or application is, is an important question whose relevance only continues to grow with the Internet’s commercialization.

We implement the EWM system and demonstrate that it achieves high measurement accuracy and has a short convergence time which enables it to monitor the popularity trends over short time scales.
