Alexa rank means nothing and certainly has nothing to do with SEO

Alexa is still following it's old method to rank sites. How it ranks site without knowing the exact visitor on the site?

I think alexa ranking is correct according to your website visitors. Because i researched on many websites and found them right in many cases. By the way you can estimate a website ranking by checking their site age, contents, backlinks and moz Domain authority.

No veraafverma, most webmasters do not install their toolbar. So how they guess that websites traffic and then ranking? Then they guess a website visitors only according to backlinks, keyword positions (SERPs) etc.

Ya, I'm with Ord on this. In fact, a while back, when I heard about the "then" upcoming decommissioning of the Foolbar, I immediately thought all the fluffy conversations about PageRank and SEO, were going to change focus to Alexa along with PA and DA.

For example, whenever you comment, your website links are included too below your comment. For example SEO Friendly Responsive web hosting.......

Oh - both are in your profile settings, although, I'm sure you don't qualify for a signature yet.

For the signature - "quality: posting - not junk for post count. If you post junk to try to get ahead, those posts will surely be removed and you could even be banned. Eventually, the feature will be ready for you to enable.

Alexa rank is bogus at best. They can't track your visitors unless they have direct access to your server - which they don't. Sure they can track their plugin but even that can be faked by reloading a page over and over.

Alexa is a ranking that does not have an effect on the search engines.

It's data is collected from users of it's toolbar, browser extensions and if the website owner chooses to their script on their site.

Quote:
Alexa's traffic estimates are based on data from our global traffic panel, which is a sample of millions of Internet users using one of many different browser extensions. In addition, we gather much of our traffic data from direct sources in the form of sites that have chosen to install the Alexa script on their site and certify their metrics. However, site owners can always choose to keep their certified metrics private.

Our global traffic rank is a measure of how a website is doing relative to all other sites on the web over the past 3 months. The rank is calculated using a proprietary methodology that combines a site's estimated average of daily unique visitors and its estimated number of pageviews over the past 3 months. We provide a similar country-specific ranking, which is a measurement of how a website ranks in a particular country relative to other sites over the past month.
