According to alexa, WR is now at 71,164.

Not only that, but I was really suprised that it is past Wikitruth.info which is at 80,000 about.

EDIT: Sorry if I put this in the wrong place smile.gif

It's interesting, but Alexa rankings for the lower numbered web sites strike me as being fairly easy to "game". If every member of this board got an Alexa toolbar, the Alexa rankings for the board would shoot up. I'm not sure the statistics are really meaningful.

For those folks interested in seeing Alexa rankings without installing their bloody toolbar, and using Firefox or Mozilla, you might consider installing the SearchStatus plugin. Quite useful, if I do say so myself.

But the ranking is based on the hits of people using the toolbar, isn't it?
