    What percentage are we

    I'm suffering 'brain fog' and just need a quick answer to a question.
    If there are 108 million websites in the world and we are ranked 97,171 where in the top percentage are we?

    97,171 / 108,000,000 * 100 = 0.089%...

    We are well into the top half of a percent of websites (0.5%)

    Pretty amazing really!

    It's probably easier to say that we are one of the very top websites

    Statistics

    I'm not happy about these numbers.
    Where do the figures come from? Who is #1? How are they calculated?

    The new figure is 95,574/108million ~ 0.08849% however, you can't keep using a number like 108million and be as specific as 95,574 for the numerator.

    What is the rate of growth in the number of websites worldwide? All those proxies i get emailed about daily (I'm on the lists for prevention of course! ) must add to the total quite significantly. That would put us up even higher

    The 108 million is an answer that Google threw up when I investigated the total amount of websites in the world, and is an approximate number. The Alexa number is a pretty definitive mark of our position on the internet. It is by no 100% accurate, but we can't really argue
