Perl Maven under 200,000 and ahead of Perl.com

While I know the rankings Alexa provides are only proxymations to the actual popularity of each site, and I think even they take it seriously only for the first 100,000 sites, but this is the best I can have. Without actually seeing the logs or the Google Analytics of other sites.

Anyway, this is mostly just a fun look at some random numbers.

On 24 December 2013, for the first time Perl Maven ranked higher than perl.com. The Perl Meme site was still a bit ahead.

Two days later, even that was passed. I even recorded the position of these 3 sites the few days around the event. Just to see the fluctuation. I think the margin of error of Alexa can be at least 10%, even for sites with similar audience. So these differences are quite meaningless.

After publishing the initial numbers, I kept looking at the Alexa ranking every day and so you can see these number for the 3 Perl-related sites around 200,000.
