#416 hu? Hmm...from that chart, it appears that we should level out in the mid 200's or so :)
Wow. Congrats to everybody indeed - Brett, this is one helluva site you've built here.
I run a site at the 12,000 mark and was really chuffed with that. #416? Pah. Now you're just showing off. :-/
Congratulations though - you must have a *massive* amount of traffic on this site. That's only 2 places behind Lycos UK ;-)
Bobby_Davro traffic is huge. It really is a credit to our community here. Everyone who posts and helps makes the difference.
Alexa Top 500 Websites [alexa.com]: WebmasterWorld #411 Alexa Traffic Rank: WebmasterWorld #416
Aint about me - it's about us.
Well RC, you were right. It's not even March 15th, and here most of our goals for 2003 are finished.
Who brought the donuts?
I hope you are getting some sleep through this!
First off CONGRATS BRETT! As usual, job well done...
Now, am I to understand that WebmasterWorld gets more hits than Amazon? That would be sick..
Congrats on being the first to spot this. I've been periodically checking the rank, hoping to be the one to post this topic.

The alexa rankings are based on the average from the past three months, so it takes a while for increases in traffic to be reflected in a site's rank.
>>WebmasterWorld gets more hits than Amazon? That would be sick..
Not to mention more hits than the NFL. How's that grab ya?
Interesting that Alexa was once the butt of negative critiques, spyware accusations, and bot disallows... until we started ranking high - LOL
They are #15 - I think they are safe for now. lol
keyplyr, the change came when Alexa started to share this data with us last fall. Everyone else such as Aol, the search engines, MSN, telco's, and the large isp's are keeping that traffic data for themselves. Alexa opened the gate on it, and we now are privy to the best available traffic rankings on the net. The kicker, is that the data set quality is only going to get better.
I would like to see them share even more - such as site referral data. It brings up and interesting question about the public nature of the internet, the backbone, and traffic.
I wish that chart was stock we owned.
Awesome job folks!
They are #15 - I think they are safe for now. lol
..there's your first goal for 2004, Brett ;)
I did my part. I click the refresh button 100 times a day! :)
I`m deeply impressed Brett. WebmasterWorld is now just behind the most visited site in Norway, Kvasir [kvasir.no]. This is simply amazing!
Congratulatoins Brett :)
Congrats Brett and co! :)
PR10 next then? ;)

That's what we use Hitwise for over here in the UK. They track users at ISP level and share data with subscribers by market share. Because this is based on a much larger sample as a % of the whole, the figures are much more accurate.
It costs though - anywhere up to £20k per year!
Its interesting too that the WebmasterWorld PR has stayed constant over a long period (not a student of it, but my impression is over a considerable number of months).
Perhaps the Alexa figures tell us something about PR, and the worth of PR to the user (as opposed to its worth to Google as part of their algorithm)!
Nice one :)
I have to add this place is an excellent resource for all things related to web design, marketing and development :)
I don't wish to be negative but I am wondering if there is an inaccuracy: Several months ago there were big messages on WebmasterWorld about how helpful the Alexa data is, and about how it is possibly the best source of popularity of sites on the net.
- So how many WebmasterWorld subscribers (like me) when they read that, visited Alexa (first time for me) and got the monitoring tools?
My question is: would the WebmasterWorld rank be skewed if a large proportion of WebmasterWorld subscribers got the monitoring tool. People like me have WebmasterWorld as their default browser page.
Since our own log numbers mirror alexa's, I can't find a major fault with it. I've always felt we were under reported because of the "reloads don't count" and the fact there are almost twice as many daily users with the Google toolbar installed as the Alexa toolbar. The only figure that is off, is the page-views-per user. Our are about a 1/3 higher than alexa says.
Anyway, this is a great time for us, and a good thread. If ya'll want to debate alexa yet again - start a new thread.
Wow, top 500 is pretty amazing. I was happy when I made it into the top 50 000 briefly!
Webmasterworld Who? Never heard of them.
Congrats to Brett, admins, mods, and members... nurturing a community like this takes a lot of work!
yup BIG congrats! It is amazing this stuff has become so popular so quickly. I can still remember when it was hard to find ANY information real optimization.
Fabulous Brett and all the mods. Well deserved too! With any luck and if people are diligent in their quest to learn through WebmasterWorld ... the internet will be laden with high quality sites offering great content instead of spam!
I am interested to know how many unique users visited your site with the Alexa toolbar. This could give us some idea of the accuracy of the sample size.
We are now at 7,500 on Alexa. Still only PR4 :(
Congrats Brett and everyone else here! :-)
This is great news...for the most part. Things happen so fast here these days, and there are so many new threads that it is hard to keep up-to-date on what is what. Amazingly, however, the quality of posting (and therefore posters) has really stayed quite high even with the increase (props to all of the mods for making this the reality).
Again, congrats to all of the greta people that make this forum what it is!
