GenSoftReviews.com is currently in 246,391 on Alexa.

Alexa has a Genealogy category that has a number of interesting sites (leaving many out) and numbers them in order, without giving their overall ranks as you have, but you can click through to see it: http://www.alexa.com/topsites/category/Top/Society/Genealogy
