Perl Maven under 100,000 and above 200,000

Sounds contradicting?

I am just celebrating a bit.

A few days ago Google Analytics reported that the Perl Maven site started to go over the 200,000 visits/month limit, and two days ago Alexa stared to place the site within the 100,000 most frequently visited sites.

I know both of these number are fluctuating a lot, but they are still milestones. Two years ago I could not imagine so many vistors to my site.

A year ago, when the site passed the 200,000 mark on Alexa I was already planning to reach the 100,000 position and I actually thought it could happen much earlier, but these things take time.

As the site approached the 100,00 mark on Alexa I started to log the position daily. Just for fun. Let me share the numbers with you:
