Go by

Today, learning English has been positioned as a crucial skill for Chinese citizens. Each actor promotes English learning as a means to achieve its own set of goals. However, the groups are all complicit in sustaining a dominant neoliberal and nationalistic discourse that justifies the country’s English “mania.” If the hordes of Chinese students devoting themselves to studying English are anything to (go by), it is a craze that shows no signs of abating.

Could you please tell me what does 'go by' mean here .
