I don't know how much stock people put in Alexa's graphs these days, but I like this one anyway.

This looks good, but why do the numbers on the left side of the graph go down?

thats quite a valid point. And the spacing between numbers is psycho as well... Hmmf

the go down, scott, because it's showing our RANK.
The traffic rank is based on three months of aggregated historical traffic data from millions of Alexa Toolbar users and is a combined measure of page views and users (reach). As a first step, Alexa computes the reach and number of page views for all sites on the Web on a daily basis. The main Alexa traffic rank is based on the geometric mean of these two quantities averaged over time (so that the rank of a site reflects both the number of users who visit that site as well as the number of pages on the site viewed by those users). The three-month change is determined by comparing the site's current rank with its rank from three months ago. For example, on July 1, the three-month change would show the difference between the rank based on traffic during the first quarter of the year and the rank based on traffic during the second quarter.
