Two Year Trends in Genealogical Society Website Popularity

Long time readers will perhaps recall that for several years I followed the month to month popularity of various genealogy websites according to Alexa. It ranks website traffic stats, so the lower the rank the more traffic. While I came to the conclusion that month to month variation was mostly noise I've gone back to see how current Alexa ranking compare to those two years ago.

There are some minor changes in the order. The top ranked site remains so, second and third have switched places as have the sites with the least and second least traffic. With more societies choosing to communicate on social media website rankings are arguably less significant.
