Well for people that want to check their own sites - just:
1) Goto alexa.com
2) Type in your site - example.com
3) Click the button on the left that says traffic detail
What's the solution, if i wanna have both the ToolBars?
Get downloading that toolbar and we can push WW into the top 500.
Hmmm, maybe Brett should have a contest or promo to push all WebmasterWorld members to run the Alexa toolbar. If you combined a high percent of visitors running Alexa with WebmasterWorld's strong traffic, I think the WebmasterWorld rank would be REALLY impressive.
Am I right in thinking that the "You may be interested in the following products" part is the same for all sites? I'm not certain lots of people here bought the "Harry Potter Hardcover box set" or a book called "Bush at war"...
it's interesting, but unlike the google bar, it seems that it takes a lot of information and provides a nice revenue model for them but doesn't offer much in return.
in particular from their privacy statement:
ALEXA'S TOOLBAR SERVICE COLLECTS AND STORES INFORMATION ABOUT THE WEB PAGES YOU VIEW, THE DATA YOU ENTER IN ONLINE FORMS AND SEARCH FIELDS, AND, WITH VERSIONS 5.0 AND HIGHER, THE PRODUCTS YOU PURCHASE ONLINE WHILE USING THE TOOLBAR SERVICE.
... the data you enter in online forms, the products you purchase?
and searchs from the toolbar will "often take you to website details page at amazon".
think i'm going to turn it off unless anyone can suggest a good reason for keeping it ('part from bumping up my and webmasterworld's positions)
In a recent /. poll, about half the people used Windows as their main OS, last time I checked o_O. Odd o_O.
(I, myself, use Linux, and have Moz on windows when I need it, with IE as my "spyware browser", which I have googlebar/alexa on)
