Once in a while I check the ranking of various Perl-related web sites using Alexa. Today, January 18, 2019, I checked cpan.org and I was surprised to see that it is still in a rather good place: 165,690.
See the current status at: Alexa for cpan.org
In the graph you can see that it started to drop around July.
What surprises me is that there are still so many people visiting cpan.org. I wonder if all these people go to cpan.org type in a query and go to MetaCPAN.org, or if Alexa counts all the people who try to reach search.cpan.org (maybe via a link from somewhere) and then they get redirected, or if there is so much real and interesting content on cpan.org that I have missed.
BTW I also keep a tab on the monthly visitors to CPAN. In case that interests you.
And a little update on the position of the web sites.

Oh and in case you were wondering how close are these Alexa rankins to real traffic a few years ago I checked the meaning of Alexa rankings comparing them to traffic numbers reported by Google Analytics.
