I suppose you use an alexa site widget to monitor your stats? According to alexa the stats are updated every day: http://www.alexa.com/siteowners/widgets

My own alexa widget works just fine. Are you sure you have placed the widget code correctly on your website or that your server hasnt been down?

Yes,Alexa ranking is updated everyday.It shows ranking as both 3 months average as well as 1 month average.But normally what we see is the 3 months average.In your case it's same because your traffic during this period is same as it was on 3 months ago.

You may check it everyday,so as to confirm about it.

Alexa rankings aren't necessarily update daily; more active* sites are updated regularly while sites which are less active may only get updated every few days.

*activity as measure via the Alexa toolbar of other Alexa widget/add-on

Unless the users have an Alexa toolbar or other add-on, Alexa is unaware of the amount of traffic your site receives as they are not able to measure it.



victor1 - there may also just be a glitch in the reporting.

There are problems with the ratings at the moment. Alexa say that they are still collecting the data but there is an issue with the reporting so when everything is back up and running, your rating will be exactly what it should be. They said it would be a few more days either yesterday or the day before.

I just found some information on the update.

Traffic Rank updates delayed (Aug. 11, 2010)

I agree with what Creed has mentioned earlier.

Also since i am looking at this article right now, i might was well post the link for ya'll to read.

Sites ranked beyond 100,000 - how reliable are the stats? <---Good article

In my opinion Alexa rank is being update for some websites daily and for others according to their traffic. Maybe weekly or every 3-4 days. But when you know the exact number of your website's traffic, Alexa ranking should not be very important for you

My site today jumped from 5 million to 2 million rank.
It was a 6 month old domain and I recently developed into a web proxy site.
I hope it will further improve.
I would agree that alexa rank is only based upon visitors who have alexa toolbar installed that is why there are many many big websites who get way more traffic than some webmaster forums but they don't have good ranks in the eyes of alexa.

I agree. I checked my proxy site's rank status at the end of the week, and it seemed like there were no changes at all. I can't explain how Alexa updates its system. That's why most people aren't sure if it really shows accurate reports. You should ask the Alexa team about this

I also found the same thing happened to my websites. Several days, the data were the same numbers.
But most of the time, the numbers are changed according to daily update, I guess.

The Alexa traffic rank is based on three months of aggregated historical traffic data. It is not updated every day.
