Interesting info and site.  Another site with even more detail is Google Analytics but I think that is password protected for the webmaster only.

Your numbers were for percentage of global internet traffic.  Here is "traffic rank" which is also up (i.e. the lower the number the better):

I have a widget that shows the traffic rank of each page I go to and Google is #1 so I think the lower your number the better.

Yes, I just revised my post.  I misread their explanation but got it on a rereading.  Thanks.

You guys are doing a good job, but don't get too excited about alexa data. It is very skewed.

Highest time per user and we beat one of the news stations' websites, not bad at all.

Congrats to MetroJax for the high placement.  However I agree with John about Alexa. 

Quantcast.com and Compete.com both provide much more accurate comparitive measurement tools.

The only problem with compete and quantcast is that they do not have any stats on most of Jacksonville's smaller sites.

These can't be right. In fact, I know they're not, it's alexa:)
jacksonville.com is how all sites should model their site from, including this one. It's clean, renders nice in firefox and they're mobile site is full featured. Zooming on metrojacksonville.com is still a DISASTER!
I wish sites would just conform to standards:

^This might be a difference of opinion, but I personally thing Jacksonville.com is a terrible site.  The new version, launched a couple months ago, sucks less.

coredumped - Please find me a major website not called mozilla.com that fully passes the w3 standards.

I tried cnn.com, cnbc.com. microsoft.com, google.com, apple.com, and a few others.

Amazon.com has 1731 errors.  It hasn't seemed to hold them back.

Steve, I understand it's hard to find a site that conforms to exact standards, they're pretty harsh, but because many popular sites ignore standards doesn't mean all sites should!

Look at how bad the CSS is on metrojacksonville when using zooming:


^^close to edge on left...........................Cut off on right below


Things get cut off everywhere, most sites would scroll

jaxoutloud only has 3 errors on the validator and renders beautifully, even when zooming.

Please take these as constructive criticisms, as that was my intent.  ;D
