I’ve been having fun playing with Compete.com for a while — though as with all these traffic ranking sites, it’s a bit obscure how they come by their numbers. They say it’s "a unique methodology created by experts in the fields of mathematics, statistics and the data sciences to aggregate, transform, enhance and normalize data in order to estimate U.S. Internet traffic,” so what the hell, I believe them.

Anyway, on their blog they track the aggregate performance over the last year of "125 relevant environmental sites" — no list provided — and found it to be uninspiring.

For what it’s worth.
