Like alexa, there's probably a figure above which the ranking is
pointless due to small sample size.
On alexa that figure is below 100,000 or even 10,000.
Problem is, the toolbar often shows figures 10-100x that amount
which are rubbish.
Mildly useful for a casual guide but only if you know the above.
Traffic figures are hard to come by as we know...
