    From looking at the rankings of a ton of sites that have public pageview numbers, the ranking system is much more accurate now, although still not perfect.

    Yes, it changed, but nothing serious for me coz my blog is brand new at the moment, but seems alexa rankings of many famous blogs drunk a lot! My alexa changed from 340k to 320k, nearly nothing, :)

    Depends on how you look at it, mine went ‘down’ by 10k, from 45k to 36k, I think.

    I don’t think it’s going to be stable though, I think we’ll see some more changes shortly.

    @Abdul Wahab:

    Actually you’re 48,303, I’m 49,577. So it’s even better :)

    Looks like My Thermos went from 134K to 175K.

    I looked at my site to identify how this changes affects it but it looks like it’s got the same inane content it always has. ;)

    Yo creo que, con este cambio, Alexa se ha vuelto algo más preciso.
