# grab a Ralexa::Session instance to hold your credentials.
session = Ralexa.session("aws_access_key_id", "aws_secret_access_key")

# all countries
countries = session.top_sites.list_countries
p countries.map(&:name)

# global top 250 sites
global = session.top_sites.global(250)

# per-country top sites
first_by_country = {}
countries.each do |c|
  first_by_country[c.name] = session.top_sites.country(c.code, 1).first.url
end

# individual country lookup

session.top_sites.country("AU", 10).each do |s|
