Alexa Updates Its Ranking System

TechCrunch: Alexa overhauls ranking system where it now uses multiple sources rather than just their toolbar data. I actually noticed the change in Alexa ranking before I spotted the post at TC. Good move I think, at least Alexa is now in the position of competing with Compete and Quantcast, which are almost useless for sites outside the centre of universe United States. OzBargain has jumped from 90,000+ to 49,000+ on Alexa -- but still shows insufficient data on Compete and Quantcast.
