According to Alexa, it appears as if Facebook is the most trafficked site in all of Canada. This is definitely not right. As Mike Arrington pointed out yesterday morning, Alexa has been having some problems with their statistics. Apparently they think that YouTube now receives more traffic than Google. Well, according to this screen shot, that’s not the only site that’s bigger. Alexa is going to need to do some serious updates to their algorithm if they plan on keeping any sort of reliability. Alexa has always had skewed data but this is pretty bad when you can’t even track the biggest applications. Big props to Facebook though for being so popular. This may just be a sign of a demographic shift in Facebook users. There are now simply more users that have an Alexa toolbar and use Facebook. So what is the demographic that uses the toolbar anyways?
