Domain name change and Alexa Rankings

It does not have a lot of meaning, but it is fun to know that the Alexa ranking of the Perl Maven site just reached and passed the position where the Perl 5 Maven site was, just before I merged them.

It took 4.5 months.

The Alexa ranking of is currently 355,683 (not really a valuable number), but it is a better position than the 362,104 where was the day before the domain name switch.

The actual number of visitor has already surpassed the pre-merge level 2.5 month after the merge, but Alexa has its own magic (and slightly broken) way to measure traffic, and it compares the site to others.
