Numbers are not just numbers

Of course it makes sense to ask: how many have rated a website? The problem is that a <em>single</em> number does not reveal <em>enough</em>. Consider this example: a website has been rated by 100 people. Does it matter if this website was the first they ever rated? Or, what if they had already rate...
