I track Alexa Top 500 using InfoMinder. When I got the alert of a change today, I was surprised to see that Xanga moved above NY Times in Alexa rankings. I am not sure exactly how good Alexa rankings are. However, when I noticed that MySpace moved into the top 5 spots along with Google, Microsoft and Yahoo and Xanga overtakes NY Times, it is something you notice.
Xanga is a web log community. Other surprises in these rankings. Facebook is above Flckr. USPS is above UPS. An interesting list. This is from the list of English sites. When I looked at the Global Top 500 ranking, I was amazed.
