View Full Version : Site Ranking Variances

How popular is your site compared to others on the web? Those "site ranking" statistics are estimates, and not necessarily very accurate ones at that. For instance, one site I maintain has pretty divergent popularity figures, depending on who you ask. It ranks 76,822 with the Netcraft (http://netcraft.com) toolbar, but only 1,211,472 with the Alexa (http://alexa.com) toolbar. I'd expect a small difference, but statistically this isn't even close.
