But I think it depends on the niche. More technical niche you have the more chances of your visitors coming to your site with an alexa toolbar installed on their browsers.

Thanks.
Does alexa gather info only from its toolbar and is it the reason it index/gather data slowly compared to Google?

Did you read beyond post no. 16, the one you quoted, or research Alexa before asking this question?

Setting aside the fact that we've no way of knowing how rapidly either collects data, is this not an apples vs oranges comparison?

I had an Adult site that got 10,000 to 40,000 views a day and it was in the 300,000 alexa range.

As an experiment (although I knew it would work) I installed the Alexa toolbar a while back. I have now done 3 months (the data range Alexa uses) with the toolbar and my Alexa ranking went from 440,000 to 179,000.

Not bad, but the downside is that entering the top 100,000 has become somewhat of an obsession for me now. It must be a vanity issue because nothing else has changed and the ranking is pretty useless. The number of visitors is roughly the same.

However, Alexa does have some use. I do make use of their search analytics, e.g. Query Popularity and Impact Factor. I find that quite helpfull.

One of my blogspot blog was around 3,00,000.Unfortunately that blog was deleted by Blogger.I just installed an alexa widget in my blog and their sparky in my browser and that worked fine to get a good rank although I didn't have a decent amount of traffic.

I really don;t understand why people look at Alexa at all for traffic stats - the Alexa toolbar is hardly used by anyone any more so the sampling is pretty poor.

I've found Quantcast and Compete more reliable as some webmasters actually add their tracking code to their sites.

I agree with you. When people sell there websites, somehow the alexa ranking plays a small roll in making the site sellable and of course for when you sell advertising space. lol

Look at buysellads.com at one of there listings... they present a websites ranking in there in which could aid the person into selling there ad spots. eh, i'm started to think to much about alexa ranking and now i might have spyware in my head.

1 year ago, i displayed my ranking using one of there widgets on my blog but read more about Alexa on this forum and removed it. Now i don't pay attention to my ranking. I focus on getting more and more traffic.

I'm happy that i am in the 100,000+ range though.

3,697,390 Global rank! Beat that Mr Daisy!

umm, Ego, i think the smaller the number, the better

Spit, what are you trying to say man? That our site sucks? That WE suck? We're getting like 150uvs EVERY DAY and the blog is only a couple weeks old, HOW CAN WE SUCK?.

Lets just pretend that ALEXA sucks, and our site is nothing short of amazing

In the best case, one of my sites has Alexa rank about 8000 and it was really great but it didn't take a lot because Google changed the algorithm

Huh? Google's SERP algorithm has no direct bearing on Alexa Traffic Rank.

Are you saying that your SERP rank changed dramatically?

I am not happy with my alexa ranking. I guess because I am not active on forums and good at blog commenting..

Do you understand that Alex Traffic Rank counts only traffic from users who have the Alexa Toolbar installed?

Well, my blog is almost a month old now and the last time I checked Alexa was 13 or 14days ago - my rank now is 345,676.

It still sucks, Spit.

Yes I'm aware of that but for whatever good it will do anyone reading this thread, i'm sharing the numbers anyway

Spit, you should point out that you did not add the Alexa widget to your site, as many seem to claim that is a factor in the rank boost.

Right, I didn't add the counter, I haven't done anything different, traffic has increased to my site so my guess is more users with the alexa toolbar installed have possibly visited my site. That's the only logical explanation really to the improvement in alexa rank.
