According to Alexa, the youtube.com domain has more pageviews than google.com since a couple of weeks: alexa.com/data/details/traffic ...

Btw, I love how Youtube peaks in the weekends, while Google is relatively more popular on weekdays.

Hmm.... I don't believe Alexa stats :)

Haha, neither do I. :-)

The weekend vs. weekday thing is probably correct though (or at least, I want to believe it is ;-)).

Alexa is good, only for US sites and US visitors ;-)
Youtube is international, Google is more than than =)

Alexa stats will become meaningful the day the user base of the Alexa toolbar represents an average web surfer crowd. Because AFAIK, their tool bar is what they use for these numbers. But I don't see that happening, unless it will become pre-installed in the major browsers (say, Firefox, IE, Safari). Right now, the Alexa toolbar community can be skewed in a multitude of ways, e.g. they might have much too many tech people. Which is "good" for tech sites because they appear higher in stats, but it's still wrong, and in fact skewed information does more harm than no information on this at all (because then at least people would realize they don't have actual numbers).
