I wouldn't put too much stock in the Alexa numbers. Seeing the real world use of the site and how this doesn't seem to match the Alexa numbers really scares me.

People should factor in that Alexa is off by at least one order of magnitude before basing decisions on its output.

For example Tailrank growth is steady with 50-80% growth per month since we launched and Alexa doesn't reflect this fact.

Anyway... I don't think the honeymoon is over... I'm just getting started :-)

Good to hear. I do wonder about the alexa stuff. However, one issue is the magnitude and the other is the overall shape.
