visualization is segmented by six lines, which represent dates approximately
six months apart. The first line is July 2004 and the final line
is January 2007. Web sites are ordered along each of these axes
according to their traffic rank. The site at the top is the most
visited web site on the internet, while the site at the bottom is
the 500th most visited. Movement in rank is visualized by colored
lines. Positive movement is shown in green while negative movement
is shown in red. The saturation of the color is proportional to
the intensity of the change. Neutral (horizontal) movement is rendered
in brown. If a web site enterers or leaves the top 500 list, its
line is shown starting or ending at the bottom of the graph (the
500th position). See captions for additional details.
