Our site has been launched on June 1, 2006 and, thus, we are already 2.5 years old. For the World Wide Web, it is quite a while. We started slowly but gained some traction lately.

As a result, we made to the top 200,000 sites by Alexa:


Some people may say that it is not the big deal and they may have a point. However, we are still proud because, according to the study by Netcraft, there were over 182 mln web sites and blogs on the Web in October, 2008. Assuming that the Alexa rankings are more or less correct (there is a lot of controversy the way Alexa is ranking the sites), we are close to the top 1% of the web sites.

Actually as of January 16, 2008, we are officially ranked by Alexa as 188, 147. However, Alexa is usually late with updating its own ranks and some sites using Alexa API are more up-to-date with the Alex ranks. Our site profile by Quarkbase indicates that our rank is 177,001. Therefore, we are actually in the top 1% of the Web.

Alexa also provides ranks by countries and we are in the top 25,000 sites for South Africa, in the top 30,000 sites for Canada, in the top 35,000 sites for Argentina and Brazil and in the top 40,000 sites for Indonesia. We are also very close to making the top 100,000 for the United States (we are ranked as 113,421):


Quantcast, another free Web rating agency and major Alexa competitor, ranked us in December, 2008 as 59,920 in terms of the US traffic:


So, we are doing quite well stateside too. If you would like to learn more about the different free Web rating agencies, you could visit our radar covering the subject.
