Whilst I agree that any expectation that the membership here is anything more than a small percentage of the Perl programmers (as opposed to users for whom the percentage would probably be immeasurable :) around the world, is naive; I think your most visited stats are maybe suspect.

I guess it depends on who's numbers you believe; but also what they choose to measure.

For example, by one particular supplier, is below the 10 millionth globally, but by the same supplier, is in the top 20,000.

Lies & damned lies aside, it'd be interesting to see an aggregate score.

First time I ever looked at such statistics. For all the billions of websites, the vast majority must get precious little traffic.

    Alexa's stats are mostly based on a proprietary plugin so the data are crap. :| I was going by Quantcast which, in my experience as a webmaster using it and comparing it to logs, is quite reliable (/ in the ball-park).
