On June 1 you posted that our Alexa ranking was 35,302.
I just hovered on the icon today, and you have jumped to 30,476.
That is a huge jump in 20 days!

There are a number of national portals for permaculture information/websites/organizations/sites on the internet. I usually start at the Permaculture Activist, PRI/USA, the PermaculturePortal and there are many others. Who has got the most definitive list at this point?
when trying to determine which sites are the largest web
sites, probably the most accurate way of measuring without those web
sites actually sharing their traffic numbers is alexa.com. It is
flawed, but it is the closest thing we have.
So, go to alexa and feed in all of the sites and see what you come back with.
I talked with Maddy Harland this morning. The permaculture magazine
site gets 1.2 million visitors per year. So about 100,000 per
So it would seem that maddy is the winner in this bunch. The rest of
the sites must, therefore, get fewer than 100,000 visitors per month.
permies.com has an alexa rank of 30,059 and, in january had 794,694
visitors. This is not counting the 326,407 to richsoil.com or the
~279,000 to my youtube channel or any of the podcast stuff.

One piece in your reply that might have been confusing to non-techies is that the numbers next to the permaculture sites that you listed are their alexa rankings, not the number of visitors. And I imagine lots of folks do not know that the lower the alexa ranking number, the higher the rank (and the more visitors). Or, their eyes glazed over at the idea of numbers and ranks, so they didn't get the inference(s).

I think for somebody that is so very knowledgeable about this stuff, the most important thing that you see here is the ratio of pageviews to visits.
