Genealogy site rankings

Tempus Fugit. I'd intended to provide this update a couple of weeks ago. Better late than never. Here, using Alexa.com, are the global rankings for a selection of genealogy-related websites as of 31 October 2011.

In parenthesis find the rankings two months, three and a half months and five months ago.

Ancestry.com remains top ranked, with others of that company  sites climbing the rankings. Myheritage.com remains the top genealogy social networking site. Familysearch.org has moved up and ahead of slipping geni.com.
Findmypast.co.uk has made a big jump, but still well back of its ancestry UK counterpart. 
Since the last update 40 rankings have increased, 10 declined.

These are all genealogy-specific sites. There are many other general sites we all use, including for our family history investigations.  Click the links to see the latest lists of top sites globally, in Canada and in the UK.

In case you noticed the big jump for this blog, I think it's due to a mention by Dick Eastman which drove major traffic for a few days.  I'm not expecting that to happen again soon so look for a drop next update.
