    Our site took a bit of a dive, but I trust Compete and Quantcast over Alexa.

    Overall, but our site is relatively new and biggest in the US still, so Compete's data is quite useful to me.

    It wasn't wrong before, but it was different.


    I didn't know a ranking could be "different"

    :rofl:
    I do think its a bit more accurate now though. Look at john chow, his site says "Blog traffic for March was 282,424 page views from 152,523 unique visitors". Theres no way that one of the top 3000 sites has such low traffic as that. His new rank is around 17k, which is probably still a bit low, but much more accurate. Here are some more sites:
    Shoemoney.com : Was 2xxx Rank : Now 19818 Rank
    Problogger : Was 3xxx Rank : Now 12917 Rank
    JohnChow : Was 5xxx Rank : Now 17088 Rank
    DigitalPoint : Was 3xxRank : Now 938 Rank
    Global Internet Index : Was 66000 Rank : Now 45323 Rank
    JimKarter : Was 40xxxRank : Now 187845 Rank
    AmitBhawani : Was 70000Rank : Now 54006 Rank
    Labnol : Was 19000 Rank : Now 14626 Rank
