GenealogyInTime Top 100 Genealogy Websites: hanging in

GenealogyInTime online magazine has just released their 2015, fourth annual, roundup of the top 100 most popular genealogy websites from around the world. What I like about this survey is that there's a transparent methodology, unlike similar lists compiled by various magazines and bloggers.
Ancestry.com heads up the list as it has since the survey started. FamilySearch jumps over Find a Grave to take the #2 spot.
Ancestry.co.uk jumps two places and Ancestry.co.au (Australia) enters at #9 up from #17. Findmypast.co.uk follows right behind at #10, up from #18.

It's great to see some of my favourite sites as new entries in the top 100

Peter Calver's Lost Cousins at #68
Judy Russell's The Legal Genealogist at #86.
Claie Santry's Irish Gnealogy News at #99
Rick and Sandra Roberts Global Genealogy at #100.
GenealoyInTime was kind enough not to point out that Canada's Anglo-Celtic Connections dropped precipitously in the rankings managing to hang in at #97.

I think Trove (which is more than juat a family history site) in Australia would beat the other Australian sites in the list by a mile.
