|Weird Alexa Results|
Hi all, i have 2 sites, 1 that has been running for a year and has plenty of links etc and another that i launched last month.
How come my new site that's only 4 weeks old has a alexa ranking of 3 million yet the 1 year old site that gets 10x more traffic has a alexa ranking of 6 million.
Is alexa just completly useless and i shouldn't even waste my time thinking about it?
Because your new site is new, you are visiting it a lot, and that's bringing down your Alexa rating.
Start visiting the other site more often, and watch the figures tumble.
I'm serious. Try it for two weeks.
That's EXACTLY how completely useless Alexa is. Alexa scores are utterly dependent on visits by alexa toolbar users; very largely webmasters and geeks, with a scattering odf well-meaning teeenagers.
Alexa's ability to tell you ANYTHING about YOUR, GENUINE visitors is precisely zero.
nice answer, :) thanks
