Genealogy site rankings

Here are the global rankings for a selection of genealogy-related website, using Alexa.com, as of 17 July 2011.
How have things changed? In parenthesis find the rankings I posted a little over three months ago.
Overall the rankings for these genealogical sites decreased relative to those assessed by Alexa as a whole.
Only 16 of the 49 sites had an increased rank.
The top five rankings sites, with ancestry.com leading the pack, retained their relative positions.
The two DNA sites, 23andMe and Family Tree DNA, had an increased rank.
While myheritage.com leads the genealogical social networking sites geni.com is narrowing the gap.

UPDATE: It you're wondering why the Library and Archives Canada site isn't on this list, it's because Alexa is denied access required to separate out visits to LAC from visits to all gc.ca domains combined.
